The beginning of summer 2/3

I’ve really enjoyed spending time at home with Seth. There is just something about a 3 yr old! Micah has his last day of school tomorrow so I’ll have all 3 kids in my care, full time! Wish me luck! It will be fun. We’ll go to the gym (well, I will…Maureen and Jeanetta will care for them while I …
