Kids These Days are So Much Older

As I drove along the highway with my eleven year old daughter the sites passed us by like any other day until suddenly she said, “kids at my school are so weird and they act really bad a lot of the time.”  I asked, “what do you mean?”  “I mean,” she replied, “that the majority of kids cuss and say the ‘f’ word a lot!

Saturday night they had fun dying Easter eggs. Easter Sunday was a mellow day. We attempted to head up to the village in our home town, but the snow was coming down (as you can see above).
