  • What a great time of year

    What a great time of year it is! It is now officially spring, and as of last week, each spring sport has started up and began competition. The weather so far for the games, meets, and matches I have attended has been great, much warmer than last year when I remember going to events bundled up in pants, sweatshirts, and even gloves. I know that it may not stay like this, but if it does, I sure won't complain.
