I'm off, gotta get packed back up and ready to head out.
Have a safe trip home.

Good morning,

LC is home with me, he is still not 100%, it is probably better to keep him home an extra day in the long run. Not much planned for me today, maybe just laundry, with my wife staying home with LC yesterday, all my usual Tuesday chores are done. Just watching the original Griswold Vacation movie now.

Got to go build my snowfort to lob snowballs at all of from behind it.

That's terrible. Praying for his family.

It funny because I love baseball but dislike daylight savings time and warm/hot weather. I would like for summer to last just long enough for our family vacation then return to fall/winter.
