While it’s not officially Summer (that happens on June 21), we’ve had some pretty summery weather. In fact, I don’t think I’ve turned on the heat at all this month! I’m OK as long as the temperatures stay under 80 degrees; after that you’ll hear me whining.
Activities around Town are beginning to heat up, too.

This is the time of year when all the high school seniors are graduating and are off to start their lives. As I graduated and left my job at the Winlock Flower Shop, the owners gave me this poem, written by Saxon White Kessinger. I have referred to this poem several times throughout my life; it has always helped me when I get a little full of myself. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

If you're a new dad, or about to become one, you'd better sit down. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a typical middle-income family can expect to spend over $241,000 to raise a newborn child until age 18 - and that doesn't even include prenatal care or college costs.
