Lots of excitement in the neighborhood this week! Two new kids moved in next door…
…They won’t be here long though; as soon as they are big enough they will move out to the farm.
Today’s random photo was picked by Miss C.; she was L’s preschool teacher what seems like just yesterday. I wonder if Miss C. remembers the pink hat that L used to wear to preschool. It had a pink flower on it and it covered her stitches from a run-in with a homemade basketball goal. Good thing L liked hats!
I’ll bet that Miss C. is not the only person around here dreaming of springtime weather right now. The last few weeks have just been too hot. I hope you all enjoy this cooler scene.
