Meet Dasha Flash

Hi, I’m Dasha Flash!

I love to take pictures with my camera. Of EVERYTHING like butterflies, my best friends Emmy and Bobby, my brother Sam who weirdly is always brushing his teeth, skies, and yes, even creepy crawlies. All sorts of things!
My mom and dad are always so busy and friendly. They always invite friends, neighbors and family over to our house for BBQs and swimming pool parties. I take lots of pictures. Just wait until you see my room. I have photos all over the place. Just like the rest of my house. Our family albums are bursting with so many pictures they don’t even fit! They just keep popping out! Taking photos is so much fun! I hope you like it too!
I love my dog. His name is Ruffy. He loves to lie out in the sun wearing sunglasses. He loves California. I do too. We’ve traveled throughout California and I will tell you about it sometime. My kitty, whose name is Ginger, is a lot like Ruffy. She wears sunglasses too. Ruffy and Ginger really like each other a lot. They are the best of friends, just like my best friends, Emmy and Bobby.
Well, have to go now. Keep taking pictures!
Your friend always,

Dasha Flash

Dad is the tech boss in the family. He helps mom with the cooking (Yikes!) and works on her car. Dad was an athletic guy when he was young. He’s still the fastest swimmer...in the family. When he plays video games with Sam, Sam always wins. Wink.

Mom has a full-time job, so being a parent is mucho busy. She drives Sam and I to all sorts of places, like school, soccer, photography club, the dentist, and ballet, but she manages to get it all done--with dad’s help!

My big brother, Sam, is teeth-obsessed. Ask him anything about teeth and he’ll recite the answer faster than a sneeze. He can tell you everything about teeth by showing his very own. But don’t worry, they’re squeaky, sparkly clean. He’s a techie, like dad.

Ruffy, my dog, loves sleeping and food. As a baby, he barked at everything he saw, especially human food. We joke around with him by keeping a doggy bone just out of reach and to keep him from getting too fat. He also sleeps a lot, but which dog doesn’t?

Ginger, my cat, is obsessed with the need to have her fur always shiny and thick. She loves beauty and being noticed for it. Ruffy is her best friend. Sure, they scrap once in a while, but when it comes down to the wire, there isn’t anything Ginger wouldn’t do for Ruffy--with a little singing ‘tude, of course.

Bobby is obsessed with his ultra-fast skateboard. He rides about town and in the skate park--and anywhere else he gets the chance! He loves music and learning to play the guitar. Bobby thinks bridges and cranes are really cool.

Emmy is obsessed with reading. She’s a bookworm, a walking junior encyclopedia, and an internet nerd. Ask her anything, and she will blurt out the answer without pausing to catch her breath. She loves doing crosswords, and she reads really fast.
