Last night, the governor of North Carolina put out a statement saying that everyone should STAY home today. We’re good at following orders. With church already cancelled, that was easy to do. We enjoyed a quiet day at home together, and warmed ourselves up with spinach broccoli soup and homemade whole wheat bread. Kendall & Berkeley spent the majority of the day working on a project they thought up—drawing all the characters and props needed for the story of Cinderella, cutting them out, and then gluing them on popsicle sticks so they could tell the story to us for a Family Home Evening activity tonight. It was pretty darn cute.
As Patrick was tucking the girls into bed, the phone rang. When I saw the caller ID, I knew exactly what was happening. It was the recording from the school district saying that school was cancelled for tomorrow. The sun did come out today and melt some of the ice, but with temperatures getting down into the teens again tonight, it will all be frozen over in the morning. Snow days can be fun, but since we’ve already had two of them (even though they were over a weekend), I think I’m over it. Plus, now this means we just got robbed of our President’s Day holiday! Sorry, Abe & George. . .
The girls have played together so well these past two days being cooped up in the house, with only minimal arguing. What are the odds they can keep it up for THREE?
