Happy Mother's Day

My apologies for being so quiet of late. Between giving and grading final exams, packing for the move, making numerous trips back and forth from Tennessee to North Carolina, and attending end-of-semester and farewell events, I've been somewhat overwhelmed. It's hard to believe we will be moved into our new home in less than two weeks! We're quite excited.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone who is a mother (biological, step, or otherwise, to two-footed or four-footed children)!
