Happy Thoughts

Happy thoughts to the Daniels family, and our 4th grader, Hayden, as they move to Wake Forest University in North Carolina in the next few weeks. We will miss you!

Happy thoughts to Ed, our turtle, who came out for a bit and then went back under the mulch. A sign of Spring regardless!
