June! The start of Summer, planning for day trips, travel, excursions and for me; our senior daughter’s graduation . So many of you have come on this journey with me. I started talking about all of the things that would be the first and the last and they are all happening. Today is her last day of going to High School. Next week, she practices for graduation and then she will walk across the Siegal Center floor and grab her diploma! I am super proud of her. Her HS experience was one that she truly embraced and she gave so much. She was such a safety for our son at school this year, and it will surely be a different experience next year for him without her, but, it will be ok. One more moment of bragging rights, because I think this is a wonderful program through Henrico County Schools- she was awarded a spot to come back and teach when she graduates from college and I am so certain that she will be an educator that brings change and great energy for our babies!
Here’s to all of the graduates of 2018, with a shout out to Jake, his mom, Tricia, is our community outreach coordinator, together we will get through this! 🙂
This past weekend was the Autism Walk with the Autism Society of Central Virginia. This is a picture of a portion of our team, On Your Mark. It was an incredible day of community support and awareness. I am so proud to be a part of Richmond and all we do for our families. Watch for an article mid month, from ASCV with a recap of the event. Plus, I am lovin’ our new team shirts!
This month, we have an article with tech free ideas, we welcome Faison to the site as well as sharing Richmond Arc’s newest location. There is so much to share and read1 Plus, our calendar is FULL!
