It's Back!

Will created a company a year or two ago called Will Factory. Hence his blog, Recently he decided to cease Will Factory operations and founded a new company, Flan Company ( He can be very single-minded when dreaming up ideas and plans for his companies.

"Our slogan is going to be 'The F Is Back'."

School started back on August 11. We were all excited to start back! Sophie was particularly excited to start kindergarten and go to school with Will.

The very best time to have your kids in ice-skating lessons is the middle of the hot, hot Tennessee summer. Although it seems a little eccentric to keep snowboots in the back of your car at all times, they feel a lot better than flipflops inside the rink! Here is Sophie at one of her early lessons, back in July.
After renting skating for a while, Sophie's sweet cousin Zoe (with lots of help from her mom, I'm sure!) sent us her outgrown skates. Sophie was just a bit excited to have her own skates:

What a goofball!

We're still continuing the lessons this Fall. Sophie is getting to be a pretty good little skater, and Will has graduated to hockey lessons.
