  • It didn't take long at all to wake everyone up this morning-the ground was covered with white. Now, it was white with ice, but everyone was excited. I still wanted to do our school work for the day-now, I normally probably would have skipped school today, but with the blizzard that they are predicting next week, I thought I better take advantage and squeeze another day in.
  • We did our morning reading, and then everyone was released-Graham, Campbell and Whitman went outside for quite a while. Anderson and Keaton went out for just a few minutes. Keaton has never ever enjoyed the snow or cold weather. I can remember when she was small crying in the snow because her shoe fell off. I had to carry her back to the house while trying to keep her little wet, socked foot warm.
  • The kids did trickle in and most everyone was still finished with their school work by noonish. As soon as Campbell, Keaton and Whitman were finished they returned outside and played out there until at least 2 or even after. They had so much fun playing with the neighbor kids. When they did come in for good, Campbell was the only smart one to head to shower to warm up for good.
  • Robby and I made some cookies this afternoon after I walked on the treadmill. Ha! Yep, I was standing there eating cookie dough just minutes after getting off the treadmill. Maybe that all canceled each other out.
  • I am not sure how the afternoons can sneak by-well, I did do my dreaded task of pulling out school for the week. Honestly, it doesn't take too long so I shouldn't abhor it like I do. Whitman and Keaton's school I should probably prepare a month at a time while the others sometime have things that change from day to day so I can't get too far ahead.
  • We braved the icy roads (they weren't icy-well, a few spots we couldn't see well enough to know if they were dry or not) to eat supper at the Wilson's house. They had bbq and cheese dip, and we brought salad, baked potatoes, mashed potatoes and cookies. We just had ourselves a big feast.
  • We watched a design show which made me sour-I can organize and make lists, but some things I just can't do. Afterwards, we watched a Yellowstone documentary and left when the otter was eaten-oh, it was a big and exciting night!
