Best Friends, Worst Enemies...

I woke up this morning to a recorded phone message at 5:45 a.m., a 2-hour delay. Well boy howdie! We get to sleep in! The phone rang again a few minutes later, another 2-hour delay message. Another 30 minutes later, the phone rings again. Surprise, another 2-hour recorded delay message. So much for sleeping in!! Now that my 3-question, 17-page, pain-in-the-butt mid-term is finished, I thought I could get get up and get a few Scentsy things done. I looked out the window and sure enough, SNOW! Nice snow even :) The phone rings again, as soon as I heard the stupid recording, without listening, I hang up. Then it dawned on me. If it is still snowing (and it was), school has a two-hour delay, that last call may have been a school cancelation. HMMMM. I turned on the TV, and low and behold the little prompt at the bottom of the screen says, CLOSED -Milford Ext. Schools, along with all the other area districts. So much for getting things done. So the question became, do we play in this... Or do we make a fort... FORT WINS!!! I think it is amazing how well Dalton and Madisen get along, when they want to. They decided that it was too cold out (they get that from me) to play in the nice snow, so they built a fort out of our dining room furniture, and lots of blankets. They get that from me too, I remember doing that with my brothers every time we had a chance. I told the kids if they built the fort in the dining room, they could leave it up for a few days. It's nice to know that the dining room gets used once in a while, even if it's for something other than eating.

I love tents and forts, Kids can get so creative, and I love to hear the conversations underneath the blankets when they think you aren't listening.

What fun! It is good to see the kids having a nice time together. We used to make the same kinds of forts. There is nothing better!
