A V-formation flock of geese seems to have one member of the group as the leader, but each member takes its turn at the point of the V, leading the way as the others in the formation honk in encouragement.

This month has been crazy.There have been five family birthdays, a funeral, a wedding, a lesson to

parents' house next door.
On the way to my brother's house we stopped in Twin Falls
where two of my high school friends met me for lunch. It was the first time the
three of us had been together since high school which was a long time ago.One other friend had planned to meet us, but
had the wrong date and missed our
I discovered it's a real challenge to keep my blood sugar

school's musical and we don't want to miss it. I wonder if April will be any
