Wimp-out Post

I was busy all day, and we have guests spending the night–four little girls are piled up in J’s room.  So I’m wimping out and sharing another blog with you instead.  Saratoga Woods and Waterways has lovely photographs and descriptions of local natural wonders.  Recently, there was a whole series of cute pictures of a … [Read more…]
