Hope that you have all found plenty of time for fun and rejuvenation this summer. As the summer winds down, consider joining us on August 19th for the last of our Playdates at the Park for Adoptive and Guardianship Families: McFarland at McDaniel park on lovely Lake Waubesa. If you are looking to connect with other parents/families in a relaxed setting, this is the event for you. If you have older kids, bring them along too for a hike or bike ride on the nearby Lower Yahara River Trail.
