I took a little break from making cards yesterday, just needed a day to clean the house (holy DUST!) and all that. Jeremy has a snowmobile and the kids have been itching to ride it, so he let them both take a spin yesterday afternoon. We have several feet of snow piled up around here, as you can see (actually, these pics don't really do it justice... the paths that are snow-blowed have about 3 feet of snow on each side of them!) - and Jeremy made a "track" around the backyard to drive the snowmobile around. Here's Cassidy (she's almost 16):
(BTW, we're New Englanders - we don't need coats....HA!)
And here is Trevor (he's 17):
They would love to just get on and GO but we have to pretty much be in the middle of a blizzard for them to do that - maybe this weekend, at the rate we've been getting snow! They are saying we will get more snow on Saturday and then the "possibility of a big storm next Thursday". We have had big storms on Wednesday/Thursday for the past 4 weeks in a row! They are starting to talk about how the schools are going to make up all the missed time - possibly extended days or canceling one of their vacations (April?)... but I don't see how they can do that when so very many people make plans for vacations. Would a child be penalized for the absences if their parents already bought and paid for non-refundable plane tickets? I guess we shall see!
Have a wonderful Friday, my friends. I've got a bunch of card ideas I want to try out today - which was an unexpected benefit of taking the day off yesterday, I actually had time to think and plan what I wanted to create today. :) Peace.
