September 2018 Issue


Mike Morse

Hi Everyone,

With the kids being back in school, things are slowly getting back to routine for many.  We’ll see what this month brings for sales activity.  There were 17 sales in September 2016 and 17 sales in September 2017.  Of course the dollar values were a bit different but it will be interesting to see the stats for September 2018.  We’ll let you know next month.

Our municipal election and school board trustees vote will be coming up on October 20th and some candidates have stepped forward to announce they will be running.  Our Mayor Lee Brain has said he will run for re-election.

Back-To-School Survival Guide: Parents Edition

With September well underway, it can be all too easy to become overwhelmed by the hectic back-to-school shuffle. Between scheduling school pickups, drop-offs, daycare, and more, that first month of having your kids return to school can be challenging for parents too. Struggling with the back-to-school blues? These helpful tips are sure to help you multitask like a true parenting pro!

Create A Calendar

Plastering sticky note reminders on the fridge can only get you so far! A calendar is a great way to organize your schedule and help you stay on top of your busy day-to-day activities. Whenever you find yourself forgetting when the next soccer practice or PTA meeting is, having a calendar as a go-to resource can be an absolute blessing. Plus, for the tech-savvy parents out there, you can set-up a calendar on your phone to provide helpful notifications for upcoming events.

Meal Prep

We have all struggled through the hardship that is Monday morning. The last thing you want to do while half-awake and bleary-eyed is act as the family chef. Try prepping your children’s lunches the Sunday before the week starts to save yourself from a manic Monday morning. To make the most of your time, use this chance to also prepare your own meals for the week. A parent has to eat too!

Set A Regular Bedtime

Bedtimes are not just for kids! Trying to corral children into getting ready for school each morning is a lot easier after a good night’s sleep. If it’s a weeknight, skip the late night TV and head to bed. Your body and brain will thank you in the morning.
