Drop off your plastic bags and canning jars at the orchard and we'll re-use them!

Josie Tollaksen, The 2015 New School Competition

Apple season is a crazy time of the year for our family.  It’s busy without having the kid’s around but then add three kids and all the things they have to do and keeping them safe with all the people around – you can imagine that could be stressful.  It’s not though.  I’ve found some wonderful people that love our kids just like we do.  I don’t worry that my kiddo’s are in good hands because of these folks.  And one of those people is our neighbor girl – Josie Tollaksen.


Josie is such a wonderful young lady.  I have known her for over 8 years and she has been a part of my family for that long as well. She is the neighbor girl and has been watching my children since they were born.  She's not your typical babysitter though - she brings joy and art into my children's lives.  They don't sit around all day - they make books, art projects, and even bake with Josie.  I know I found an amazing girl to care for my kids when I see their faces light up when they see Josie biking up to the house.

I wish her the best of luck in her future and I know this girl is going to bring joy to the world.

And here’s where she needs your help …

Please take 3 minutes to watch, like, comment on, and share my video! This is my submission to The New School Competition, if I receive enough love I can win a full scholarship ($160,000!) to Parsons The New School For Design. I don't have long, the contest closes February first! I will be be forever grateful. Thank you!

In order to get things done, I have a strict rule to not watch video’s online.  I broke my rule and am so happy I did.  This girl is poised, well spoken, and has a good head on her shoulder’s.  While I secretly wish she would stay home and go to school so I can have her for my babysitter for just a few more years – I would love to see her live her dream and excel.  Thank you for taking a few minutes to like, comment and share Josie’s video and help her accomplish her dream!
