Summer 2016

As it feels like our summer is coming to a close, I wanted to write about the things that we've done this summer and what we still want to do! We will start back with school on August 15th. We have joined a co op this year and are excited about the new opportunities there. I'm a little nervous about my music class but I know it will all come together and be fine! :) So, even though summer isn't over, and even when it technically is, the days are still warm and we will still have time to do some fun things.
