• This week was Evie’s sixth birthday! Like most children she changed her mind repeatedly about what kind of party she wanted but eventually she settled on a gymnastics party.

  • Can you believe it is almost August?!?! What? How did that happen? But seriously we are little over a week away from it. Which means it is time to start talking August patterns! Whoot whoot!
