It's The End of The World As We Know It & I Feel FINE!

So Saturday was the only day this whole past week that was even remotely spring-like (and it was soooo perfect), and to welcome us back to the work week, look what we get:

Spring, My Eye (II)!!

On the way home, we saw all these deer near the Orton's
This is the school house (still in operation) in Springdale...I think it's so cute and Cailin is so lucky she gets to go to school there!
