I suppose it shouldn't shock me, I do live in Minnesota. But we are experiencing yet another, snow day. Nothing like the blizzard last week, juts a good old-fashioned snow. It's beautiful outside with flakes gently covering the ground and yet, I'm so ready for Spring I can hardly stand it! Thankfully, Travis is enjoying this new snow with the junior high students at his their annual winter retreat up north this weekend, and I am home with the kids and my parents. We are "enjoying" it from the comforts (and warmth) of inside. That brings our total snow accumlation this year to something around 70+ inches. That's enough I think.
As far as our strategy for survival? Nothing new. I'm pretty sure all of my pictures for January and February basically look the same! Ava reading and playing in her room while Carter hangs out. So far, this year will go down as memorable and simple. And given all of the crazy circumstances and challenges out there, that's not always a bad way to start off a year :)
Looking forward to a dinner outside the confines of our house tonight :)
