...and still smiling! We said goodbye to the kiddos as they headed to Palm Springs where they have been enjoying the sun with grandparents, uncles and cousins. We miss them! As I signed Ryker out of school last week (he'll return for just one day before spring break), I tried to excuse myself but ended up admitting that I'm a lame mom and begging forgiveness instead. "No, Mom." Ryker assured me. "You're actually pretty cool." :)
