Cindy... It's "friend Stephanie" :-)

Jen said that both of your boys were off to Iraq - so scary - my thoughts and prayers are with you! It's hard to believe they are old enough - seems like just yesterday Jen had Nate in her class at Vintage Hills!

I am living in Colorado now but think of those fun times I was lucky to share in with Jen and the kids/parents of Vintage Hills!

Take good care!
