Summer festival at Wintergreen Resort

 Girls did 'Build-A-Bear' and designed their new stuffed animals' shirts 

 Somehow the tongue changing color makes it taste better?!

Awesome trampoline bungee!

First day of school!

Lots of excitement for first day of school this morning... Joni happily climbed on the bus for her first day at Hollymead in Mr. Bernhardt's kindergarten class (notice her backpack is about twice as wide as her little back!) and Haven started Gr. 2 in Ms. Santana's class.
