Welcome to Spring! With longer days and the opportunity for getting outdoors, soon you may notice birds bustling about and even a nest or two in your own backyard. We’ve peeked inside our Nest to nd- the golden eggs! Thanks, dear readers, for taking part in our quest to nd those local businesses that shine brightly day after day. Check out the results of our first Best of the Nest on page 22.

This issue, we also help you get ahead of the game with our extensive Summer Camps Guide. Remember, the early bird gets the worm and camps fill quickly!

Familiar with the buzzwords, “Growth Mindset?” This philosophy rings true throughout the issue. It should be no surprise that a positive outlook can shape a child’s growth in so many different areas.

Annette Benedetti shows the steps to take on the path toward positivity in Trending, with her article on Growth Mindset. This is followed by Lizzi Katz’s piece on Lego Robotics in Education, and finally, Alyce Pearce takes us Outdoors with a fresh look at skateboarding. All of these areas have Growth Mindset as the foundation. Parents, we too can bene t from forward thinking, so take note, enjoy the wisdom and, as always, thanks for being part of the journey!
