The kids missed school on Friday and Monday. They slept in and I was able to get somethings done around the house (a couple of cabinets and a closet cleaned out here and there, nothing too demanding) and the kids were able to relax and have some down time. They say it was much needed but, come on - they just had a two week break at Christmas and last Monday off for MLK Day!
Peter was supposed to have a dance last Friday night which got canceled. He was also supposed to go camping which got canceled. His basketball game got canceled. Sarah's Girl Scout meeting got canceled. Sarah's science fair group got canceled.
See why I don't like snow? Around here, it looks pretty for a day and then it just messes everything up for 5 days. And we only had between 4 and 6 inches. This part of North Carolina is just not equipped to deal with snow.
Hopefully all the snow is past and we can focus on Spring! I can already tell that the days are getting a little bit longer. There's a wee bit of light in the morning when I go out to get the newspaper and in the evening when I take Peter to basketball practice. It always makes me happy when I can tell the days are getting longer.
Next week is Catholic Schools Week and the PTO has been getting all of our plans in place. Hoping and praying that it all goes smoothly. And we have already been meeting and planning our big Spring Fundraiser. This year is going by so fast. I can't believe it will be February next week!
Here' a few snaps from my phone:
|This girl loves a selfie and every now and then, I join her!|
|The backyard covering in snow!|
|This cat will not leave me alone when I'm working! He's attacking the pull string on my sweatshirt!|
|The kids played quite a few rounds of Connect Four this weekend! And Sarah is enjoying a bowl of snow cream!|
|Beautiful sunset and my favorite kind of snow - melting!|
