I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! It rained here, but we needed it. It rained so hard yesterday, W even wore her rain boots to church. We’re headed to Monkey Joe’s this morning, to let out some of the girls’ much needed energy, that was kept indoors all weekend. I did manage to make the weekend productive, I stored away our winter clothes, and got out the spring and summer wardrobe! Hopefully, it will make the warm weather come faster, and STAY! Oh, and the best part of the weekend, the HEELS won, against DUKE!!
