American Idol – Excited for the New Season

Too Busy to Write

The last few weeks have been especially busy and I don’t see a slow down in my future.  We ended track season and are moving right into baseball season this week.  At least this year the boys are on the same team.  I spent last week substitute teaching and will finish my school year tomorrow…
