    1. Thanks! 🙂 I won’t be able to spend as much time outside today as I ‘should’ (hoping to do tomorrow what I don’t get done today)….I also need to go to school today–the girls have some year end activities they really want me to come for. Have a wonderful weekend!

      1. I remember those year end activities with my two. i loved being there for them. It made them feel special that their mom could attend. Have fun. They just grow up way too fast. LOL
