What's the saying?
April showers bring May flowers.
I don't know about that happening with Northeast Wisconsin's unpredictable weather, but I will say those first few warm weather days always brings excitement to CP. And probably like you and I, May at CP means one thing: we head outdoors!
Warmer days find adult clients spending time carefully transferring plants they've been growing during the winter to their permanent home in the accessible garden, where they will produce a bounty all summer long. For the art lovers, being outside just means there is another canvas to work from - bring on the sidewalk chalk art and tie-dying!
Exercise is a huge part of daily activity at CP, and exercising outside just hits different. Heading outdoors on a three wheel bike, or maybe a pick up baseball game in the parking lot isn't too uncommon around here. Not to mention, childcare kids will finally be able to burn off all of their kiddo energy on the accessible playground.
And we aren't just limited to the CP campus, either. Summer months are a time to explore our community with field trips and community outings. Visits to the zoo, a concert in the park or a fishing trip are all things clients and children love to do, and more often than not, they make new friends no matter where they go.
If you are wondering about the summer at CP, and how you can easily support some of the favorite outdoor activities, I invited you to look at our first ever, online only appeal, aptly titled: Bloom.
