Another nice weekend. On Thursday we saw BIG flocks of geese going over. The weather was warm, sunny, breezy and temperatures in the 60’s, which felt really good. Did have rain showers on Thursday. I just hope we’re done with the snow and cold. Did you all remember to turn your clocks ahead on Sunday? I guess I had a blonde moment….not a senior moment…..I turned mine back and realized later I moved the hands the wrong way. I finally did see three robins early in the week, so I guess they are around and maybe that’s another good sign of Spring.
I must apologize to Layton Shea. I missed him for both marking periods and he made Distinguished Honors both times. Sorry, Layton, and I’ll try to remember next time. Gotta remember, you’re a Lopezian now.

From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book: March 13, 1974 – Very cold, clear, and 10 degrees. Wow!! I liked ours a lot better. We had clouds and breeze and in the 50’s. I remember one March 13th when we had a blizzard, but was glad not this time.
