Our blog will be full with a lot of topics on creativity and family fun and messiness. While David is gathering some top secret information for you on his famous pancakes, I wanted to do something practical for the moms as we jump into summer. […]

David here… So, this is the part where we are supposed to tell you what this blog is going to be about. Well lucky you…we occupied the kids for a few minutes in the backyard with a giant bag of M&M’s and a pile of sticks…and with […]
