2017-18 Update

Hi everyone!!

I don't know about you, but for me this year has been INTENSE.

Baby #3 joined our family last spring.

Our local SEPAC  became re-established over the past year and as of January I became the chair of that organization. Which, if you didn't know, is basically like taking on a second full time job, but it is all volunteer work.

I have continued serving on my local Family Child Care Association's board as Vice President - whose duty is to schedule and host all of the workshops for the year.

There is a new division of GFC called FCC Coaching. It is new, it is SO FUN and rewarding, but it is also a ton of work.

So, while all of that was going on, I was also running a Reggio Emilia Inspired child care program for children ages 1-4. Here are some photo highlights of our studies, adventures, and fun!!
