Happy Friday Richmond friends! 

Summer is already halfway over, so if you are waiting to start some memories, you still have plenty of time. 

We ventured to Long Island last week, another 7-hour hour car drive, but spending time with my husband's family was wonderful. It had been 2 years since seeing my sister in law and niece and over 1 year in seeing Grandma! That is too long. I debated going, and am so glad I did. It has been 10 years, and each time I am there, I miss it in different ways. It still is hard to be back, but luckily, I do love Richmond.  

I hope you all get out, even if it. is to "stay in" and enjoy the Summer, making some fun memories and finding some time to enjoy, is so worthwhile. 

It has been incredibly hot, keep that in mind when making your plans,  there are lots of movies deals, arcades, bowling, etc to get out and stay in!  

We shared  Lynnhaven Academy Online last week, learn all about them in the article below, but what a great option for so many families. The ability to receive an education from an accredited school, from anywhere you need to be!
