Spring Ducks!

This week is Spring Break, Leah finished her BA in Urban Studies & Spring Quarter will complete her minor in Human Rights. Graduation is June 10th & we're about to start counting the days.  Tyler is off work still due to his ankle injury, L & I is scheduled to review his claim today & we hope to proceed with a MRI to gain a full understanding…
