It's so nice to see the almond blossoms! For many this is a sneezing situation, but after the winter we have all had it is also a wonderful sign of a beautiful spring just ahead. It has definitely been a hard, wet, windy and rainy winter! Again this past weekend the wind and rain took down several trees in Valley Home. Trees were down on each campus at the school on Friday. Wow what a crazy winter we are having. Looking forward to spring for sure!
