Whether it is the first day of school or a tearful goodbye to your college student, these are part of the emotional journey that happens each of us sometime in our lives. As parents we are proud of our students and sad of the passing of time. But these memories can be captured and thus last a lifetime. Memories are the precious gifts that we can share with one another. So come, build your story and share the gift of your sacred moments from the ordinary moments of your life
