5 things...

Last night it was bitter cold. Our thermometer registered -14 degrees this morning. Now it's 12 degrees. Sorta seems like we're having a heatwave.
So because of the cold...we didn't have school. We go to school in raging blizzards, but wimp out when the temperature dips.
We didn't do much today. Stayed in our pj's for a long time, went out to lunch and for most of the day, enjoyed each other's company. Hope everyone has a great week!
1. Did you happen to catch the moon last week. With the cold temperatures and all the snow it seemed like the world was sparkling..
2. I finally found something that I have been looking for. I've searched high and low until yesterday when it rolled right out in front of me. It's something special and I can't wait to share.
3.I painted my toes today....because that's what you do when it's -14 outside and you're about to go stir crazy.
4. Great hockey weekend for Ryan. I so love his coach this year. Someone who finally "gets" Ryan and what it is to be an active boy.
5. Our spring trip can't come soon enough. I think even the boys are getting ready. Lots of talk around the dinner table, making plans and rehashing old stories.

enjoy the week!

We once had a "cold" day, too. It WAS weird. And that was when the school was all in one building. Yesterday the kids were all walking around campus, in their T-shirts. Crazy. Hey, who did the cartoon? Very cute!
