It did cool off a bit and this morning we had a nice breeze as we enjoyed coffee on the front porch. breeze or rain today. HOT!  The youngest two grands stared their new school year in which my daughter who taught school in the public school system for 11 years teaches them at home.

{Living the Good Life} and WINNER of "Gideon book"
