Off track

It’s been awhile

Well it has been awhile since the last entry!  The end of the school year brings a flurry of activity and occupies most of my time and energy.  Now school is out I will have to try and find a balance between cleaning, gardening, Halloween prep and genealogy.  So far cleaning and gardening have won […]
