A Sad Update…
Nelda Soben passed away today after a long fight against cancer. She is survived by her husbad, two daughters, and son. We will always remember her and the love she shared with us. May she rest in peace.
Illness has taken another school day from us. Now, fire up the DVD player and keep that OJ coming!

Day 52: Fall Back

Day 51: Dude, Seriously?
It is cold out there today.
Day 50: The Dark Side
