Not sure your little one is ready to start kindergarten in the fall? Wondering what you can do to make the most of that first year once s/he gets there?

I don’t even want to think about what would happen if I took my two dogs to the Diamond to watch a baseball game, but maybe your canine companions are capable of going out in public without totally embarrassing you/leaving a trail of destruction. If so, go for it! And if you buy your ticket through this link, $3 of the purchase price will go to the Richmond SPCA to help fund their efforts to care for animals right here in RVA.
