DD dream team

This week in DD history: May 30-June 5, 2021

If you were at my house this week, you’d hear a mixture of sighs of relief tumbling with anxious worry of report cards to come. It’s the final week of school, and I’ll be honest – it hasn’t been optimal. We need this summer break. *I* need this summer break, and we are all hoping for a better school year once mid-August hits.
