Is it still storm season in Texas? HAIL YEAH it is ( 👈🏼see what we did there?) 😆 #Texas is known to have prevalent spring and summer storms with the weather alternating like a wardrobe change at a Cher concert. 🤣 SO, we're partnering with @BesTex_Solutions to offer a roof audit and hail report after a storm strikes (anytime)! If your home has been taken a beating from a storm give us a call or click the link in bio for a FREE audit and hail report.

PARENTING RESPONSIBILITIES DURING CIVIL UNREST:
My family and I have a long way to go in our efforts to better support our local and global black community. Educating ourselves is one way we can do so, encouraging our kids to read books on the struggles of various black historical figures is another, supporting black-owned businesses is a third. Getting out to vote is another…the list is endless. There is no one “right” way.
The only “wrong” thing you can do is to not talk about it at all. To brush it under the rug and tell yourself your kids are too young or that they just won’t understand, or to justify it with a phrase that goes something along the lines of, “They’re just kids—why take their innocence?” The fact that any of us can say that shows that we are the privileged ones—the ones who have the responsibility to ensure that ALL children are safe, loved, heard, educated, well-fed, encouraged to shoot for the stars and be made to feel like THEY MATTER.
So talk to your kids. Keep it age appropriate. It doesn’t have to be one long lecture. It can be as simple as a few sentences or thoughts, sprinkled into conversation over weeks or months. But talk to them. They ARE listening. They’re watching, too. In the end, actions speak louder than words.

Hey Austin-area parents! As you are likely aware, camps and child care are beginning to open.🏕 •
To help you in your summer care decision-making, Enriched Family created a blog post rounding up a list of Austin-area camps. The roundup includes online camps, in-person camps (both indoor and outdoor), overnight camps, free or reduced cost camps, and other childcare options. For each category, I highlight the safety and hygiene measures each camp is stating they will follow, as well as CDC guidance about reopening camps and child care locations. My goal is to provide you with the information you need to make the best decision for your unique family circumstances.
Best, Esha/Enriched Family

Look at this cute photo. Do you know what this baby is doing?
He is receiving amazing stimuli that will give him all the foundation he will need to be fluent in Spanish, to develop musical skills and to be an extremely developed child cognitively.
And his mommy, the one who is taking the picture, is learning a lot of Spanish, sign language and parenting skills along the ride.
And they get all these wonderful benefits from the comfort of their home while they do fun and bonding activities together.
Would you like to have this opportunity for your child and for yourself?
We're MOVERS, SHAKERS, and GAME CHANGERS. 😉
We support diversity + inclusivity because hey it's part of our Farmer's family! And June is recognized as Pride Month, where we can shine and stand for what's right! 🏳️🌈 In the face of today's adversity, let's stand TOGETHER and keep paying tribute to everyone involved in helping bring EQUALITY and JUSTICE. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #ComeTogether#YallMeansAll#TheArreagaAgency

Mommas, this week I’ve wiped my social media plans clean to make space for mommas of color to share their stories. I encourage you to listen with humility, and respond in love and with honor. Austin momma, Samantha Newton shares this with us today: “Here's where I stand...
I should not have to teach my daughter to watch her communication when discussing something she is passionate about for fear of being labeled a disgruntled black woman.
I should not have to worry about my husband working late or traveling alone.
I should not have to worry about bringing a black son into this world with fear that he will be taken from me to soon.
I have so many thoughts and emotions, nothing that hasn't been said already. I'm not a 'me too' person. I have nothing original to add.
What I will do is continue to seek information on what I can do to make a real impactful change and take action on EVERYTHING that I find that is within my means to complete. Example: I am a registered voter, I will vote.
We are one family.
Imagine if every family did what they could to be apart of the change...”

A simple swing can make a child smile. How did we go from this, to a World full of hate and racism? Where did we go wrong? We are all the same. We were all once little kids who found joy in simple things like swinging. WE ARE ALL THE SAME. #stopracism

Front yard photos! I've known this sweet family since our kids' preschool days. Now we're watching them graduate from high school. It goes by way too fast. 😭

We’re often asked, “what material is best for garage doors?’ Well... let's discuss the pros and cons:
🏡 Steel is a very popular choice, and for good reason. It’s reasonably priced, durable, low maintenance, and available in just about any style you like. But it’s not the best insulator.
🏡 Aluminum has all the advantages of steel, but can dent more easily.
🏡 Wood looks STUNNING, but it takes work to maintain it.
If you're a builder looking for advice, then we can help! Our years of experience have made us an expert in our field. Give us a call discuss your needs or submit a bid on your project. #GarageDoorExperts#CedarParkOverheadDoors
☝🏼We’ve all got a true story for this one, don’t we? Where did it happen for you?
We had just gotten off an international flight... SO jet-lagged, going through immigrations when the motion sickness hit one of our kids, so I just stuck my hand right out there to catch. Officer had a lot of grace for us. 😆

Teen years are hard. Pandemic teen years are even harder! I have made it a point to spend more time outdoors (while social distancing) and to spend more time intentionally with my kids while we’re together 24/7.
Despite the challenges of juggling school and both my husband and I working from home; we’ve really grown as a family in a lot of good ways!
I’m so thankful for the nature walks, the bike rides, the cooking and the puppies.
I’m currently in Indiana with my Mom and made it a special road trip just with my daughter. It’s been the most beautiful trip and time with her.
I’m so grateful for the number of people I’ve been to continue to help with their social media goals! Despite the travel and all the unknowns in our lives.
This season has brought on a lot of challenges but it’s brought some great changes too.
Have you seen some good come from the challenges? I would love to hear how it’s made you stronger and better!
“I have an idea,” I quietly whispered to my husband.
This is a phrase that aways causes him to pause, look at me and say after a breath “what is it.” I told him I wanted to host a virtual party. A place where all my other toddler parents can get together and connect, laugh and plan play.
He of course said it sounded like a fun idea so I went to work.
I’m excited to announce Saturday May 30th at 2PM CST I will be hosting a virtual Summer Party. There will be music, there will be laughter and I will help give you ideas to make the most epic Summer Bucket List for you and your family.
The best part is that it’s completely FREE to attend. I’d love to see you there! Spaces are super limited so make sure you snag your spot before they fill up (the link is in my bio). Can I count on see you there? It’s my first time doing something like this and I’m a little worried it will be like high school where no one comes to hang out with me.

No matter who long we've been hunkered down together the kids seems to still want to snuggle, follow me to the bathroom, sit on top of me on the couch, ask for sips of all my drinks and call out my name if I leave the room unannounced. I'm trying to be flattered but it's teetering more towards annoyance. 🤷🏼♀️

Hug a little tighter, laugh a whole lot louder, snuggle a bit closer and remember to love hard always ♥️
