    I love “chill out and read” time! Probably one of my favorite activities!!! Glad you guys got a little of it. Have you thought about how you are going to print and preserve these wonderful weekly recaps… such a fantastic journal you have of all your wonderful activities. HOPE you mom’s day was SPECTACULAR!

    When one of my daughters was his age, she played with a crate of apples in the corner of the kitchen for almost 2 months. We didn’t get to eat them but it was a very inexpensive toy!
