Sole Girls focus on self-esteem and mental health of girls in a non-competitive community.

In their 9 week programs girls learn about goal setting, healthy living habits, dealing with peer challenges, anxiety, and self-doubt.

"The mission of Sole Girls is to inspire and build a world of confident, active girls who are supportive, inclusive leaders who embrace their differences and who see physical activity as something positive for their mental health."

Throwback Thursday - 2 hours of my life when Maddie was a baby....

I found an old note that I wrote years ago when Maddie was a young baby - a post never written:

A graceful dance through my day with a small baby...

A spring walk...

Jenny Lutes, 2015 Ruminating Mommy

Ava still lets me hold her hand while we walk down the street...on our way to the store to pick up art supplies...and a couple of hot chocolates. Quiet time with her, and no thoughts of school work...little sister is out with Daddy. We feel the cool breeze and warm sunshine on our faces. Spring is here. We talk about ideas of what we can sew together, and look at the blooming flowers...with no pressure to be anywhere else. Home learning allows for schooling along the way every day.
