    Default Wednesday Roll Call, 3/15

    So, how many of you are waking up to snow today? We certainly don't have the amount the NE is getting, but some lake effect snow dropped a few inches. We went out to dinner late afternoon yesterday, sun shining. By the time we got in the car to drive home, I could barely see 50 feet in front of me since the snow was coming down so much. Thankfully, we only had about 10 miles to get home.

    It's a quiet day here for us today. Kids are doing some studying while home on spring break--ds has 3 tests next week. DD is reading over a dozen Supreme Court cases for a journalism class on the 1st amendment.

    While I had their attention here on break, yesterday I completely emptied out the game/puzzle closet and had them decide which ones we could give away. We actually have room to hang some coats in that closet now!!

    After some snow shoveling this morning, I tutor a few kids in Algebra II for the afternoon. Maybe have some left-over raspberry pie from Pi day yesterday.....

    No snow for us... Denver will hit a high of 76

    We are enjoying spring break. Getting time to get to know DS1 "Friend Girl" before she returns to college. My Mother in Law just left and I love the return of after dinner hikes (daylight savings plus).

    Hope everyone has an awesome Wed

    So envious of the 76 degree weather. Last Wednesday it was in the 60's; this Wednesday it is 24, with a wind chill of 12. Oh well.....weather in the midwest.

    Unfortunately, ds's girlfriend couldn't get here for a visit because of her work schedule. From how he talks about, she seems like a nice girl.

    Dh and I also love the after dinner walks afforded to us because of the time change, but we've not been able to take advantage of them yet!!

    The funny part is DH walked into my office as I was typing "No Snow"... and he said "Dont do it... dont 'brag'... you will MAKE it snow.."

    I'm just not going to bother trying to make focused school happen this week. My husband got stuck at work because of the snow, and that's been stressful for Teemie. So she hasn't been able to focus and then we lost power yesterday. She's been doing some art and writing on her own and I might load an audio book for her. We'll get back into math and focused reading next week.

    We're in the low 30's but will get to the 60's. It's just cold enough to wish the fireplaces worked.

    Today is science. Tomorrow will be English. I've got to get him to pick a historical fiction that fits with his social studies unit. We'll have to get it ILL. It's getting time for lunch. Have a great day!

    The bffs are headed back to CO this afternoon. The kids had a fun time and it was really nice to have them.

    Their family offered for ds to come stay the entire summer with them on their farm in CO. So generous of them. The 3 boys all think this is a good idea. DD thinks this is a very good idea - her eyes twinkled at the idea of no brother for a summer ha! Dh and I think 4 weeks is good. He will have a ton of fun and learn so much. Tough for mom yes (just thinking about it makes me teary), but good for him.

    The weather here is beautiful and I've caught the spring cleaning bug. I spent the day cleaning our school room, it feels much better now. We usually end up taking 2 weeks off in the spring. One week for fun, one for cleaning away all the winter clutter. Those extra daylight hours make such a difference.

    Was 90 and 91 today when I was out running around - luckily only 80 at the house.

    Ive felt productive this week so far, though, as long as we dont count not folding laundry.

    Even got my little one to the dentist for the first time!
    Maybe theres something to be said for the state mandating a dentist and doctor visit before starting kindergarten! I hadnt been avoiding it, but this got it done.

    My spelling was fine, then my brain left me.
