Summer is finally Here!

Summer is slow coming this year. It would get warm and we could get into the pool, then it would get cold, then it would warm up a little (maybe the 70's) and then get cold at night and the water at the pool was cold. Now it hit the 80's and 90's and the pool is full of people with their kids. The kids are being dangerous and the parents are ignoring the kids. Not all parents, mind, but quite a few.

FB has something new

FB has something new, it allows you to see some of the things you posted over the years. It has allowed me to find some of the patterns and things I have saved but could not find to save here. So now I am moving things as fast as I can so that I can save it and find it later. I am also printing quite a bit. I have this month to get my kids stuff together for next school year, as we are going to go traditional this year.
