April is here and we hope for a warmer weather to come. See what happening around Atlanta/Sandy Springs in April from our Atlanta Parent Squad, Susannah Withers. Susannah is a wife and a mom to 15 month old son. She lives in the Atlanta/Sandy Springs area and works part-time for her family embroidery and screen printing business, Patricia’s Spiritwear and Promotional Tee’s. Thank you Susannah for sharing your favorite things to do in April.
Where is the warm, spring weather that we got a taste of a couple weekends ago?! It is freezing outside. We even had snow flurries at our house yesterday! Really?? Moving on – enough of my rant.
