We hope everyone has a good weekend. James is going to a Spring Fling dance at his school this evening. Jacob is going on a field trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum with his National Art Honors Society tomorrow. After doing our house chores tomorrow, David, James and I are going to a new business opening at the city lake in Campbellsville. James is looking forward to playing in the bouncy castle and getting kona ice at the concession there.
