Then we went to Mom and Dad's to visit with Mom why Dad was out of town. Sunday we celebrated hubby's 36th birthday by mowing the lawn and doing yard work, LOL.
School is officially done but we will be reviewing over the summer. It is nice to have the break, but things are still not getting done, hmmm??? Maybe some scheduling is in order for next week. Hubby has started to build the chicken coop and will holefully finish it this weekend. Looking forward to some fresh eggs.
