October is ending, and our wildflowers are fully engaged in all things fall. Our preschool students have been busy learning about land, air and water, and the animals that belong in each area. They’ve also been exploring solids and liquids. Fall has swept in with many discussions of seasons, why our leaves change colors and why cooler weather is on its way. We learned about Columbus, and are continuing to learn about the planets, specifically our planet, Earth. We’ve created some beautiful self-portraits, and are eager to decorate pumpkins next week.

Heart disease and stroke are among the nation’s top causes of death and disability. Although, one disease affects the heart, and one affects the brain, these conditions actually have a lot in common.
Cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and stroke, account for more than one-third of all deaths in the United States, and disability in nearly 3 million people annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You begin to worry about health concerns later in life: In 2006, of the approximately 800,000 Americans who died of cardiovascular diseases, 151,000 were younger than age 65.
