Hi, From Carissa 6/14/19

June 14, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond Friends,  It is Father's Day weekend and we have found lots of great activities for you all. The weather looks wonderful and I hope everyone has a great time celebrating the men in your lives. We will devote all quotes to dads this month, and we have some fun giveaways that run through this week. We also have a Pinterest board full of ideas, articles with some fun and some apps that will be faves for dad. 

I miss my dad, it has been many years since he passed away and I so wish he could be here to see my family grow.  I won't get sad now, but I will say, make the memories matter and the moments count! I do not take a day for granted with my kids, I know how fortunate they are to have a dad that loves them and teaches in s many positive ways. I know my dad is smiling down with the love I have found and the family we have created. 

School is over for my young man, he will be in a Summer School program later on, but these next few weeks, he "wants to relax". Goodbye to 10th grade! 

We welcome Fit 4 Mom Richmond to our directory,  FIT4MOM Richmond offers prenatal FIT4BABY classes, Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre classes for moms with babies and stroller aged children as well as Body Back classes for moms to attend on their own.
