Brrrrrr…Jen is done with the cold and is so ready for spring!  Jen was able to escape for a short but sweet visit to her Dad and Shirley in Florida, where they went bike riding to the beach and watched the sunset each day- just what the soul needed!  She was also able to watch her oldest play soccer in Charleston, South Carolina, where the team got second place after a double overtime and penalty kicks in the championship game.  Jen’s youngest has been busy doing her thing with acting and singing!  Both of her children have dove back into piano after the holiday hiatus and are doing great!  Jen’s husband, John, is back at playing in an over 30 coed soccer, pretty impressive for being 51!
