Happy Summer! It is official, according to the calendar, and I keep
thinking how lush green everything is with all this rain. My grass is
getting taller and my peonies are about to bloom! I love the flowers
deep pink color and it is fun to drive by my neighbors where there is
a scare crow dress and hat of the same color this year. I'll have to
get a picture.
I know that many of you will have new email addresses with the school
district reorganization. PLEASE be sure and email me your new address
so arts education information continues your way without interruption.
