July Mom of the Month - JULIA HOSHAW
Instructor, Angela Bridgford: "Julia is always fun to have in class! She makes you laugh, is super sweet with the kids, and is a friend to all of the mommies. Julia works super hard at Stroller Strides, giving 100% every time she shows up! She is an inspiration to our mommies in her strength, but most importantly as a great mommy to Callen and an awesome wife to her hubby! We are blessed to have you a part of Our Village, Julia!"

Callen loves to play "puppies" with me, we crawl around the house barking and panting with our tongues out. We're an odd family :-) He also loves to have tickle fights and dance together.
8. Any tips for other moms out there?
Get connected and stay connected! Motherhood can be lonely, especially when your kids are little. Join groups (Stroller Strides), make mommy friends, and be brave enough to reach out for support, help, or a cup of coffee when you need it.
