I was about 3 weeks behind in my album and I just got caught up yesterday so I really don't have time to post all my photos from the 3 weeks. Most of them are pretty ordinary anyway! I do have some nice ones from my daughter's graduation on May 9, so the next time I post I''ll include a few of those.
