Usually we would be going to soccer practice about this time. But not tonight. Tonight we shoveled the walks. It has basically snowed all day. When I made the boys walk to school this morning Cooper said, "Can you just pick us up in the car!?!?!?" But I had to make him walk at least one direction in the snow. Otherwise, what on Earth would he tell his children? "When I was a kid my mother drove us to school both ways -- in a really warm car." Doesn't do much for the toughness factor.
PS -- Have fun in Mexico, Jake and Ben.
PHOTO NOTE: This house picture was taken at about 9 a.m. this morning. There's a lot more on the ground, now.
