My Second had try out for Music Festival. Received a score of 97 out of 100. He also moved up to the next level of his piano books.   Soccer practice began for his AYSO team. 

When telling my Youngest that Florida’s nickname is the sunshine state, her said “Sure it’s sunny in Florida but it would be better to call it the Disney State.”
