AMIGUITA OF THE WEEK ~ Natasha*

Natasha* is our ball of energy. She has a carefree spirit and is always moving. Many times we have found her high in a tree or flipping over monkey bars in her nicest dress and sandals! We love Natasha's creativity and sense of humor. She is always coming up with funny nicknames for the people in her life and she loves to make others laugh. Oh, and she gives some of the best hugs!
