Snow Day

With the big snowfall, school was canceled, and along with it a number of activities that are associated with academia. This includes A’s rehearsal, as well as story hour at the library. Pottery was postponed as well, but for sickness reasons, so our busy Friday schedule came a grinding halt.

This was not a bad thing, however, because A&I called and wanted A&N to come over and play in the snow, which they did for several hours while I slaved away in the frozen tundra. We were planning on making pizza that night, so we invited them over for supper, but they had other plans, so more pizza for us. The kids came back in the afternoon, and by that time, they were a little beat, as we all were. R got a little crazy and went for a snowshoe trek in the fresh powder, though she hinted that it would have been easier to have just walked in her boots. Personally, I’m not that enamored with snowshoeing, I’d just as soon take a walk, but that’s just me.

We sat down to a pizza feast, and thanks as usual to DR for the pizza stone, and then had family movie night and watched Spy Kids, which was a cool movie and inspires the kids to practice martial, except that they do it on each other and right before bedtime.

Oh well, what are you going to do? Thanks for reading, and thanks to RIC for the pic.
