Our CASA kiddos still need our advocates in new and additional ways. We continue to be motivated to ensure we are communicating even more to meet the kiddos' needs and ensure the comfort of the parents through these very different times. ❤💙 #mondaymotivation #ChangeAChildsStory #casakids ...

Sleeping in and doing (almost) nothing!
Every year before school starts, I take my daughter back to school shopping. Things look a little different this year for sure, but we are still going to keep the tradition and have fun!
