Sweet Day

Dylan is home from YIG in Tallahassee.  It was so interesting to hear him tell about it - what a great experience for teens!  He chose Judicial this year, and played an attorney.  He argued his case against his friend Peyton, which was quite a coincidence!

Laurie made us pancakes with scrambled eggs and fruit - so nice.

Then we watched the M-MSU basketball game which was very satisfying and enjoyable!

Stopped at Publix on the way home, fixed dinner, watched a little Downton.  What a Sweet Day.
