Misty, this list is great... I can see you have settled into your new community so well!
I can't wait to see the newly painted room ~ your kids are just adorable and the photo of the prairie dogs at Walmart is hysterical! Could you hear me laughing? I'm still smiling as I write!

Wishing you a sweet September week!
blessings to you and your family,
~Maria
