Public [...]

The kids are so excited to be out of school for the summer.  I must admit, it is a nice change of pace. Time for them to get in some good reading for the summer.  We will be heading to the library once a week at school so my daughter can get a jump start [...]

TV Stands

May 13th, 2009 · No Comments
