Obligatory commentary on the fast passage of time: Can you believe that August is over and it’s now September, friends? The good news is that we’re doing our best to keep up our streak of monthly wrap-up posts, so here we are with another wrap-up post today!
So let’s talk about the books that we all read this month, and all the other fun stuff that we’ve been up to. Onward! ✨
Friends, I think we have to admit something that we all know: we’re pretty bad at doing these wrap-up posts. To be fair, the last three months have been incredibly busy at the Pond. In May, we had Asian Pasifika Heritage Month, in June we had Pride Month, and July we were all having naps to recover from the sheer workload of it all.
But look: we made it to the end of July and we’re doing a wrap-up today! Look at us go!
After dropping the ball on this a few times, we are finally back to our (hopefully from now on) regular wrap-up posts! Following all the awesome work that we did for Black History Month, March was a much more relaxed month where we mostly shared book reviews and book news.
It’s just CW wrapping up the books she read this month and the posts that she did. Where are Skye and Joce? Read on to find out. 💜
It’s the last day of spooky season, friends! And that means… it’s finally Pond-O-Ween! Last year, the Pond friends celebrated Pond-O-Ween and dressed up in costumes handmade by our favourite toad, Varian. This year, the Pond friends are back with new costumes, and we are so excited for you to see them.
Seeing that it’s the last day of the month, we thought we would combine Pond-O-Ween with our Monthly Wrap-Up. We haven’t had a Story-Time post in awhile, and Joce wrote this year’s Pond-O-Ween post – and I know all of you are going to love it as much as I do.
