    In June, our monthly theme is BACKYARD.

    Let’s play our monthly alphabet game (yeah, I forgot to set it up in May!).

    Let’s find words that are related to backyards, whether it is something you find in your backyard or activities happening in the backyard. And of course, if you happen to have a photo of it, even better!

    Who will start?
