Editor's Note - Fall 2017 

New sneakers, backpack, and a brand-new attitude. Who doesn’t love a fresh start? Once again, it’s that time of year when vacation is over, the kids go back to school, and everyone settles in to a comfortable routine. Do you have kids in a Montessori preschool? My son had the privilege of attending the Montessori Center in its very first year under the direction of an extraordinary woman, Ms. Elkins.

Many years later, she continues to embody the philosophy of Maria Montessori, honoring children as unique individuals in her preschools. The exciting news for Central Oregon families is the opening this fall of Desert Sky Montessori as a charter school with the Bend-La Pine school district (see Lizzi Katz’s article in Education).

Outside of school, with the kids participating in fall sports, there is always the possibility of sustaining a concussion. Annette Benedetti covers signs and symptoms and reveals the seriousness of this type of injury in Health.

This issue we are proud to feature four local military families. Learn firsthand from these courageous men and women what it takes to raise a family while serving one’s country.

Are you bringing home baby and want to make sure you’ve covered the bases? Prepare for some beautiful bonding time with local favorites in our Gear Guide.

And don’t forget, just because school has started doesn’t mean you can’t get outside with the family. In Outdoors, Kim Cooper Findling presents ideas for local harvest activities, including alpaca ranches, orchards, and farm to table dinners. Pumpkin patches anyone?

Even though summer is behind us, our calendar has never been so full. For families, the Central Oregon autumn is a fantastic time to get out and enjoy our surroundings. Happy harvest time and Halloween!

Enjoy!
