    I am so thankful for the nice rain we had, without any storm to speak of, at least it left no damage here. We had some pretty strong wind and a lot of lightening, which was scary. But we didn’t get nearly as much rain as some did. It certainly was a relief to be able to quit watering the garden.

    Hello everyone, hope you all are doing well. First I would like to remind everyone school starts Aug. 8, so please give yourself more time to get to where you need to be. The big yellow bus will be on the road again and as a driver myself, I know safety is first and schedule is second. The children will be out at their bus stop excited and waiting for the buses. The first few days the buses will be looking for new stops and that does take time. Thank you for your support and help.
