Kindergarten Registration Open

Hello Reidenbaugh Families!

We hope you all enjoyed this beautiful weekend with great weather. I had a chance to notice how our kids are growing and developing their unique abilities and personalities. I love to see my children's friends growing up with them and either growing closer or apart. It means they are changing, finding their own way. I love when they share memories and I keep trying to build more and more. Do whatever works for you and your family but don't forget to enjoy your time together. Kids are kids for such a short time. Tomorrow they will be a day older than today. Drink up their innocence and try to see life through their eyes. It's beautiful. We can learn so much with them!!
