Weekend Roundup August 14-16

The weather this weekend is gong to be hot, but with a chance of storms on Friday and Saturday. If you’re looking for ways to keep cool, 4 of our Top 5 Ways to Keep Cool are indoors and won’t be significantly impacted by storms.

This weekend is Dexter Daze with events on Friday and Saturday including a parade at 10a Saturday and fireworks at 10p on Saturday.

Weekend Roundup August 14-16Another weekend long event is the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History’s Exhibit Workshop: Michigan Wildlife Dioramas. My daughter and I had a lot of fun in May helping them design exhibits and recommend attending one of the events. Workshops are daily through Tuesday.

There are several Back to School crafts on the calendar:

Speaking of Back to School, the Back to School Information combines some of my Back to School experiences over the last 4 years with a child in Ann Arbor Public Schools with the information that the district has already released.
