My daughter and I have been having fun together since my seven-year-old son has been at day camp for two weeks. (More on this to come!) One fun thing we discovered as we dropped him off at the beach for his Beach Day was a large feather. Strawberry was delighted when I showed her how […]
I know I’ve been rather quiet on my blog lately, but that does not mean we are not playing! In fact, this summer has been carefree and delightful so far. We took a ten day road trip to visit family, we’ve enjoyed the pool, and my kids love playing on their new scooters. One fun […]
