This year our little guy has developed a new obsession with NASCAR. Ever since watching his first race with his Ciocia and Uncle Mike he has been hooked. He has the drivers' names and numbers down pat, along with their top sponsors, and can even tell you who has placed in the past couple of races we have watched. It's Continue reading

CJ loves to be creative so I thought having his own set of art supplies right in the room, available within arms reach, could open the door for some spontaneous creativity. As a member of Continue reading
