Snow What?

We have snow!!! We have snow!!! I've been oddly chipper for me for the middle of winter, I can't seem to keep a smile from creeping onto my face every time I see it. Especially when I was out in it today and it was falling like crazy. Or when I was watching the science bowl team having a snowball fight. I wasn't smiling as big when my van slid a bit a few times, but all is well that ends well. Snow makes me smile.

Early this morning I woke up, saw snow and had to wait to make some calls about whether or not practice for science bowl would be cancelled. All public schools and school functions were cancelled. However, we homeschoolers are a mavericky bunch and practice was on like Donkey Kong.

This meant early morning drop-off of Kayla to Sandy's because she was wonderful enough to help a friend in need (and already heading that direction!). (My mother-in-law kept the other two because she is wonderful.) This allowed me to get to my doctor appointment, the one I have been waiting for for 3 months. The one I somehow crazily scheduled for 8AM!!! On a snow day. I was in and out in less than an hour and plan to have all of my appointments at opening on snow days. I read less than one page in my book. Then I went to Kayla's practice and waited for them to finish. Watching made me really miss academic team and math team. Such fun. Eve and I laughed though, that at this age, by the time he gave the multiple choice answers, we had completely forgotten the question. Getting older has so many perks, NOT.

After returning home,(and some while we were relocated at various places) we got our school day in. I save our days off for purty weather and we took a full break at Christmas, so no more days off for us for a while, snow matter what! I hope my fellow West KYians are smiling about this snow too. It is still very stinking cold, in fact, we are due to reach single digits with negative wind chills. However, with some pretty snow, it's all good.

I'm not really smiling, but I'm not grumbling about it either. That's pretty good for me. I think I'm only feeling positive about it because it gives me an excuse to take pretty pictures. If not for that, I'd probably be really annoyed with it.

I'm glad someone is enjoying the snow. The kids were excited about it until I informed them a snowman was off limits thanks to the bug making its way through the family. Throw a snowball for us.

Oh, and Emily informs me you'll be going to Danika's house every day to change the dirty diapers. Could you add our house on that route? Thanks! :D
