    Hi Meggan! I really enjoyed reading of your vacation Bible school experience. Dennis would loved to take advantage of your gardening workshops; last summer he wanted a pressure cooker for his birthday and has enjoyed using it. Our garden is producing good things and we are enjoying Iowa heat and humidity. Tomorrow is to be 82–a cool down. Hope your trip back to South Dakota was great.
