It's Memorial Day, which means it's not only a holiday weekend, it's also the start of SUMMER! (my favorite time of year!)... A-N-D, at our house - we will FINALLY graduate the Man-Child tomorrow afternoon! Because of such a crazy schedule, I'm sharing a couple of posts from last year, and a few links to print out your own decorations, that I think you'll enjoy. So, sit back, relax and begin your summer, and don't forget to remember WHY we celebrate and honor Memorial Day!
