Weekend Recap


I can’t tell you how much I love a weekend with no set plans and nothing we have to do. On Friday, Ben’s class performed some short plays so I ate lunch with him at school before the performances. I can’t believe he’ll finish 2nd grade on Thursday.2nd grade boy at school

Things took a turn for the worse on Friday night when I stuck my finger in a pot of boiling water while trying to stir some pasta.
