I gotta go back, back, back to school again. Whoa, whoa, I gotta go… back to school again!
Does the start of school put this Grease 2 ditty on a continuous loop in your head? Am I the only one?
Well, it’s back to school time here in Connecticut and I for one am enjoying all of the first day of school pictures that have been circulating. I can’t wait until I get to dress up my munchkins for their first day. Next year!
But until then, I’m busy welcoming a few new sponsors to our blog. It’s Sponsor Shout-Out time here at OAAM and I’m so excited to introduce to you these two Connecticut businesses: The Independent Day School located in Middlefield, CT and Jessica’s Garden located in Marlborough, CT while continuing to welcome our site design photographer, Kathryn Deane.
As you know, it is thanks to our wonderful sponsors that we can keep this blog going. So please take a moment to learn about the businesses that support us. I think you will be glad you did!
Whether you are looking for a fun outing, planning for your child’s education or working to document your family memories, our sponsors might be just what you are looking for.
Located on a rural campus in Middlefield, The Independent Day School is a private pre-school, elementary and middle school, serving families from over 20 communities. Challenging academics, enriching programs in fine and performing arts combine traditional instruction with hands on learning in a nurturing environment. We encourage our students to develop a sense of curiosity, to display empathy and respect for one another and to be fearless in their learning. 1/7 teacher/student ratio.
September is a great time to visit Jessica‘s Garden in Marlborough, Connecticut. Take the kids, enjoy the beautiful grounds, and check out their ice cream and lobster shack. Pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin bisque will be exciting additions to the fall menu. Mums and pumpkins will be available for home decorating and the fairies in the fairy garden will be preparing for winter. For more information, see our post on Jessica’s Garden and check out their Better Connecticut interview and television ad.
Kathryn Deane is a natural light photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, child, family, and senior portrait photography. Kathryn infuses fun, patience, and creativity into every session. To learn more about Kathryn, view her work, or check out some of her latest sessions, please visit her website at www.kathryndeane.com. (You can also read about our OAAM photo shoot with Kathryn here.) Expecting? Don’t forget that newborn sessions should be completed in the first two weeks after birth, so early booking is essential!
Once again, a great big “thank you” to our wonderful sponsors. They certainly help keep things going here at OAAM, and we hope that you will keep them in mind now and in the future.
