I hope everyone is having a great summer. My summer has been great so far. Took the grandkids to Aquatica Water Park and SeaWorld in June and had a blast. In July we took our horses to North Georgia and actually got to ride for three days. Then the rains came. Our kids and grandkids came during the week and so did the rain. I’m talking bridges washed over, roads washed out, flash flood warnings, etc. I thought my husband was going to have a heart attack but we all survived. We did not get to do all we had planned like tubing since the river was too swollen but we did hike to one waterfall and we caught enough trout for two meals. One rainy afternoon when we were all stuck in the cabin one of the adults said “at least we are not at work”. I started thinking about that statement and how lucky I am to have a job I love (most of the time) and how lucky I am to work with wonderful, dedicated teachers and therapists. We had a great, fun year in our groups. The students learned while we all had fun. I would like to thank everyone that helped through donations, volunteering, etc. I would especially like to thank The Leon County Schools Foundation for their grant to help purchase supplies. Looking forward to another great year.
