Snow today! It was a beautiful sunshiny day yesterday, and this evening, snow.
I love it! Big feathery flakes we can watch out the living-room picture window. It's fun to see it slowly cover the ground, the paths, roads, and even Zachary's dump truck!
We didn't quite get to church yesterday, due to a dead car battery. Of course we didn't find that out until we were all loaded up, but that is the way! Thankfully we were all able to change gears without too much difficulty.
I have ben trying to figure out how to get up early without having all the little Bugs join me! Don't get me wrong, I always love their company, but the morning comes with it's chores -and they usually need tending to directly (such as diapers)! Also there is the issue of there not being enough "steam" in the little engines to last through the whole morning. That makes school-work difficult, as when something is discovered to be work (heaven forbid!) there is a sudden and complete melt-down (the Bugs, not me - although sometimes it comes to that!).
I am going to write a post about Oatmeal, and other grains for breakfast, so if anyone want's to add their two cents, leave a comment and I might humor you!
Hope you all enjoy our "singing" (if you can call it that). This is just the first verse of four that the children have learned. I'm pretty proud of them as we are not a singing family (no kidding, you say!). Well give me a little credit - PLEASE! I do what I can:-)
