Will It Ever End????
We finally went back to school today on a delay schedule. We missed two full days for snow. The forcast is for more snow and ice coming in on Thursday night with as much as 4 inches of ice and then snow on top of that. With another wintery blast expected for Tuesday. I feel like all I have done is cook and wash dishes. My children get up from one meal asking what we will be having at the next meal and what time it will be served. Thank you Lucinda Scala Quinn for your new Mad Hungry Cookbook. It has saved my family from the rut of eating what from my repitore of recipes. I have tried many of her recipes and have been very pleased with the results. They have been easy to follow with fairly simple ingredients and things that teenagers will eat. Kudos! I am posting a picture of my oldest K. who enjoyed the last snow we had, he couldn't resist taking a dive in the powdery snow that piled up on our back deck.
I am a mom of three beautiful children ages 14,13, and 9. I also work full time. I stay very busy with my family that also inculdes a busy husband that teaches and coaches. Our family is always struggling trying to balance work, school, church, and extra curricular activities. We live in Smalltown America, so many of the activities the children are involved in requires us to travel long distances, otherwise they would not have the opportunity to participate in many of the things they do. One of the trade offs of living in a remote area of the country.
I hope you enjoy your visit. I started this blog more for my enjoyment than to have other people read it. It is more of a diary of my life, which often gets too busy for me to blog about. I use it to say things about my family and express my thoughts on things I love and enjoy.
