Many of us have watched in horror as flood waters have wreaked havoc with many of the residents of Maryland. I'm sure it goes without saying that they need our prayers. I am sure that in addition to prayer there will be a need for relief workers and for monetary donations.
Yesterday was my grandson's birthday and he had a Paw Patrol themed birthday party. We had most of the party in the yard where there was a slip and slide set up for the older kids and a small wading pool for the younger ones. A rain storm forced us inside and then the fun started: My grandson w...
