While Memorial Day weekend is traditionally three days long, I played hooky at the end of the week and am stretching it to four. Yesterday was actually the last day of school for the boys so, instead of going to work, I headed over their school for a combination of field day and end of the year parties. Fun was had by all and we’re now transitioning to summer mode.
With that said, here are some articles that caught my eye recently…
