Our lives right now are revolving around the weather. mostly it's because we are always playing the waiting game to see what's going to be cancelled and what's not. I have loved having all of these extra days with Zeb at home- so the school cancellations don't bug me! the 2-hr delays-however-KILL me!! They mess up my gym schedule- which can get pretty inconvenient considering I teach so many mornings.
We just got the call a few minutes ago that school is completely cancelled tomorrow. Zeb is happy to head out and about in the cold with me- so I'm happy to have him home! We say our prayers every morning walking to school- and during this morning's prayer- he said: "thank-you for this great weather that we love so much". Whenever Metta sees snow she shouts: "It's SNOWING! yaaaaay!". And today Ike told Kent: "it's not cold at all today. I want to wear shorts to school". These are surely my children.
.5 degrees (can you measure degrees in halves?!). feels like -18*
*For any and all fact checkers- I am not claiming that these temperatures are 100% accurate- I'm just posting what my phone says :)
The only cancellations that really bother me are church cancellations. We only had 1 hour of church this past sunday- instead of 3. And I was so disappointed! Is it crazy that I love three hours of church?! I love to be there. I love the learning, the teaching, the fellowship. And I love having that much time every Sabbath to be AT church. Luckily Kent was home that day- and we fed the Sister Missionaries- so I had a great day.
Kent has worked some brutal shifts lately- so for the few minutes that the kiddos get to see him- they suffocate him a little bit :)
Metta rarely wants to sit with him- so this picture is a rarity. She's kind of a momma's girl.
Ike is still a daddy's boy 100%.
Zeb is pretty independent. He's so funny.
Ike: "why are you doing that mom? what are you putting on your face?"
Zeb: "Don't worry, Ike. It's working. It's making her look not so old".
Thanks, Zeb. I'm glad it's working.
