    Gah! I think even my Girl (very outgoing and wanting to do lots of out-and-about stuff) would melt down before the end. The Boy would not make it through half.

    For those of you in the path of the big storm(s) - stay warm and safe! We are not having any snow today, but "highs of -20 with a 20 degree windchill" aren't making me want to go outside much!

    Yeah, I am predicting some of the kids (my son probably one of them) may be irritable and crabby before the day is over. Socializing is work for me and unfortunately my son is very much like me.

    high of -20...I can only imagine!

    It is dumping here. 5 inches already and still going.

    I am taking the kids to the pool. They all have swim lessons and then we just play in the water all together and eat lunch at the cafe. In the afternoon, DD8 has speech and social skills therapy, DD7 will go figure skating with DH, and DD4 has gymnastics.

    Not much time for school left. Will try to squeeze in some math practice and reading time.

    You should be fine. Snow isn't supposed to start until Saturday evening around here.

    Oh, dbsam, you don't have to imagine. We've had some days like that in past winters. Thankfully, not many!!

    I guess I blocked those days from my memory (or I didn't go outside!)

    Lake effect snow? Oh the horrible memories! My husband grew up 4 freaking miles from Lake Erie. Lived there 2 years and that was ENOUGH! We did the zoo yesterday (59F) because by friday our highs are in the mid-40's and lows are in the 20's. But no snow expected, which is awesome as southerners can barely drive in RAIN much less snow.
    Today or tomorrow we will do "baking school" as our new neighborhood has a "secret elf" that runs around gifting things, and once you've been "elved" it's your turn to pass along the elf baton, and today we were elved. Tonight or tomorrow we will make lots of goodies and pass the elf baton along. Tech likes baking and I make him help measure things, add, help read the recipe (or at least sound out the letters) and then is the joy of mixing! We are LOVING the new neighborhood! SOOOOOOO much more involved than the living in outer suburbia.
