Good morning Alpacas! Or good afternoon, depending on when you see this. I hope you are all ready for a wonderful Wednesday. Today, think about something that has made you smile so far this week. Then think about what you will do to make someone smile before the week is over. This week, making your yearbook and seeing it come together made me smile. I’m going to make my daughter smile later by getting her to do some laundry. Oh, that might just be to make me smile again. I’m only joking!
