School looms around the corner
Our Summer of American History is nearing an end. We still have several "places to go and people to see" but in just 12 short days another year of school will begin for West Carroll residents. We had a phenomenal summer loaded with lots of exploring and learning about West Carroll and our American History. Part of me needs a rest while part of me wants to keep on exploring!
Hope you had as much fun with your family this summer as I did!
