Tech Camp

We learned so much and had a great time at the U of I Tech Camp today!

Thank you Megan and the U of I Extension Office.


Thank you, Amy Logan!

Author Amy Logan, of A Girl with a Cape, was an inspiration last night with her stories that show how small acts of kindness can make a huge difference! We had a blast and can't wait for A Girl with the Pink Cape to come out in October! Congrats to Ethan on winning our raffle prize with a copy of the book and some additional goodies!
