• OJ Goes to Pre-School!

    Our little one is off to pre-school. To be honest, it wasn’t a hard decision to make. This girl has been cooped up in a house for the better part of a year due to the pandemic and we were hoping to put her into school for the 2020-2021 school year, pandemic or not. With COVID, we were a little concerned about which school to send her to. It obviously needed to be a place…
