Growing up

This past week, I experienced having all four of my kids go to play checkers at Cracker Barrel without my assistance (at the same time), my oldest daughter got her hair colored blue, my two youngest still want me to push them on the swings at the park, and I saw a pretty Cardinal sitting on an old fence post in my old hometown. We are still looking for a place to live in Tallahassee. Fortunately, Talladega is still home, and we have our farm here to stay in in the meanwhile: 

Stay hydrated kids. The south gets hot in the summer. Heat stroke is no joke.

Always keep your sunroof drains clean. Otherwise you might get stuck driving through a storm and wind up like this.
