More Snow, A Birthday, and A Baptism

We just have an insane amount of snow.  I am getting a bit of cabin fever, I wish we could fly to Hawaii or Florida or something, but we have commitments here.  Driver’s Ed is starting and it is serious out here– no missing any part of it at all– only if you are sick […]
