New School Year
School is in session! Watch out for children at bus stops and walking to school.
Summer is half over and school is almost starting, but it’s not too late to enjoy some time on one of Florida’s wonderful beaches. Florida beaches are always rated in the top 10 of beaches in America, and are always a good idea for a quick weekend getaway.
Mother’s Day was the brainchild of Anna Jarvis as a day to honor her own mother, Ann Jarvis. In 1908, Anna began a campaign to have Mother’s Day designated as a national holiday. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers.
Don’t forget to honor your mother this Sunday, May 14.
Cinco de Mayo (pronounced: [ˈsiŋko ðe ˈmaʝo]; Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is a celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army‘s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
