What a week! J played one of three baseball games this week (two more this weekend), both boys had den meetings for Cub Scouts, and between school, work, and activities, I’m really glad I already have all their Easter stuff ready to go. We are looking forward to doing some celebrating this Friday of my sweet niece, and then Easter egg hunts on Saturday, and celebrating Easter on Sunday!
