Spring Break

I wasn’t sure if I should put the quotes in the title around “spring” or “break,” since so far it’s not much of either! No, seriously, it’s been ok. I’ve enjoyed my time with the kids, even though they’ve also at times driven me crazy. Monday, as I was trying to think of something we […]
