The Gathering — Registration open until Aug. 24

Kweh! It is time again for our annual Gathering. Registration is now live. The link is The cutoff date will be August 24 at noon. If you do not get registered before this cutoff date, you will not receive a t-shirt. They look awesome! Don’t miss out! The kids will have a special activity time during the craft session this year. Ms. Teresa has planned some really fun things for them to do! The kids will need to stay with parents during all other sessions. I do have some quiet activities/toys that they can utilize during this time.
