"Us in our boat..

them on the shore...

we can't wait to social distance no more!"

When you're stuck at home, you often find things that have been shoved in a drawer or simply forgotten.

Finally, we all may be going a little stir crazy and 10-year-old Macy McGeough knows how you feel. She wrote original lyrics to Leonard Cohen's  "Halleluja", and we thought you could probably relate!

With all this free time, Macy wrote this song about the current situation we are enduring together. She misses you all & hopes you enjoy!😊
