  1. Love it!!!! So sorry we missed class today, Anne was up all night with a fever and coughing, I was tempted to come, but I didn't think the other moms would appreciate her sharing germs.

  2. Sorry Anne was sick. That's what happens to the "best laid plans". Thanks for not sharing her germs, though. We'll hopefully see you after summer when we start up again.

  3. Great quotes! They are all so true, and they all made me smile!!
