April Showers Bring Easter Blessings

Spring is officially here and with it we think of renewal.  In April, we usually think of rain showers.  I love the rain.  It makes everything clean and fresh.  It makes things new again.  It makes me happy because the water it brings provides life.  Those first spring flowers begin to leave their winter tomb […]

Rainy days in April are the time of year I start planning for (or at least start thinking about) the new school year. Our calendar runs August through May so we are in the winding down phase of the school year. It’s time to look at what worked this year, what didn’t, and what we’d […]
