We are scurrying around packing, watering, changing oil and tires, arranging chores, wrapping up work that must be done before leaving, getting horses shod, etc. etc. etc. (Ah, a vision of deliciously buff Yul Brynner in The King and I just came to mind!)

Rick and I sometimes look at each other and wonder if it's worth it, but Brian SO excited, and I know we will be making memories with him that will last a lifetime.

That's it for June from . . .
