Now that the hustle of the holidays is behind us, it’s the perfect time to start making that long-term plan for 2014. What’s on your “must-do” list for this year?
Maybe you’re searching for the perfect preschool for your little one or looking to make an academic change for an older child. Then check out “fearless learning in action” at The Independent Day School’s January Open House. Or discover the surprising connection between Taylor Swift, Prince William and the Annie Fisher Montessori School. Just don’t delay–fall will be here before you know it!
Envious of all those fabulous holiday photo cards you just received and wishing you’d captured more family moments in 2013? Make 2014 the year that you finally organize that professional family photo shoot you’ve always wanted to have. It’s easier than you think, and Kathryn Deane Photography can help you every step of the way–even with designing that super spiffy holiday card.
So please take a moment to read a little more about the wonderful sponsors who keep things going here at OAAM. We hope you will keep them in mind now and in the future.
