It is going to be a busy day for me. I have to get everyone up and going in a couple of minutes. My daughters moving up ceremony is this morning. We are going to stop for something to eat afterwards. Then I am coming back home to take care of my dogs before I head in to the doctors office to start training for the job. I will pop in when I can, it may not be until tonight.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
Congrats to your daughter!

Good luck today!! =] You'll do great!!
