I think spring may finally be here, it was absolutely beautiful out. Windows were open, music was blasting and house cleaning didn’t quite seem like a chore. Once the kiddos were home it wasn’t long before they were outside. Love it! Dinner was easy too. I love fix it and forget it casseroles. We only ate about half so I’m happy to have leftovers for later this week.
