October 3rd, Wednesday, is Balloons Around the World Day. This is one of my favorites! Our tradition is each year is to get a helium balloon for each child, have them write a message on their balloon, and then send it up into the sky. It's encouraged to write nice messages for people to find....unless you have a 7 year old boy who writes, "You will die tomorrow." Yeah. Fun times.
Here are some other things I'd like to do this year:

Just a quirky story about how one small island of people is saved by 21 Balloons.
