For the week of May 10th Hello All, It seems to me that the world has been asleep for a little over a year. Usually in May I am writing about prom, graduation, scholarships, athletic events, Memorial Day events, etc. We finally are getting some information coming in about prom and graduation. Although the logistics for those things are all up for grabs. So, particulars I do not have. I hope you all enjoyed Mother’s Day. It was nice to spend time together with my Mom and the family. We had a potluck and it was nice enough to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. To all the Mom’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day late. Especially during this last year and a half it has been a challenge to be a parent…to try to keep up with everything and be the one who makes it all better. Thanks to all of you Mom’s out there for getting us through this debacle.
