When I was a little girl, I had many daydreams about all the things I wished I could be. At the top of the list was princess, superstar, and mermaid. As I aged, I put those childish fantasies aside. However, recently my daughters best friend came over to swim and brought with her a mermaid… Continue reading Mermaid Transformation

Even though last week was technically Spring Break to keep our routine and sanity I hosted a relaxed learning week. More time was spent reading Tom Sawyer on the couch and discussing life.

5 Years & Counting!

This produced quite a few challenges for me to overcome. Cold: not great weather to be outside in, a challenge to keep them warm and happy, red and… Continue reading Engagement Session
