It’s another beautiful week in the Rio Grande Valley!

The long Memorial Day Weekend is exactly what everyone needed.  Some ventured off to the beach while others opted to have a staycation.  My family used the long break to focus on my little niece, Elena, who graduated from Kindergarten at Leal Elementary, Mission CISD on Monday.  Congratulations to all the Grads from High School to Elementary!!
