I just had to post this here. The author is one of the local homeschool dads. Enjoy!

Mondays are always our busy day. We have to leave the house no later than 8:30 to get to church on time. After that we have a sort of co-op class. This month we ordered food from a buying club and we were going to follow friends to go pick it up. Of course, today was the day to do that. Veronica and I have had a touch of a cold the past few days. Our eyes and noses are watering and we are sneezing. Today Veronica woke up with a fever and Kevin woke up sick. James and John were suppose to serve, so we had plans to camp out in the van while they were in doing their thing. I checked the weather last night, like I always do, and today, here, it was suppose to be partly cloudy. Well, as we were loading up and ready to leave and it was flurying a little. We sort of laughed about it. By the time we got to the Alabama line, it was coming down hard and sticking. The driver in front of me was fish-tailing and could not make it up a small hill. He pulled over, we pressed on. Needless to say, it was a slow drive, but by the time we left church, the roads were fine. About a half an hour later, you would never know it had snowed. I had John take a few pictures to show his Dad what we had driven through and I thought I would put it up on the blog. Hope you had a Happy Monday!
I really have not given up blogging, I don’t think, anyway. There is just so much going on around here that my head is spinning. Hopefully this coming week there will be a post about the end of 2009 here. After that, perhaps posting will become more of a regular thing. But, I would not hold my breath. I have great plans again for the garden and have already started planning. My seed notebook is up to date. If we can keep up with the plantings and weeding, we’ll be in good shape.
Now, Mary Lou, if you are reading, thank you for the gifts you sent. MaryEllen has exclaimed more than once today that you must have sent that rain coat because you knew she would need it. She went out on the back stoop twice today, briefly, just so she could say she went out side in it. She also had it on this evening over her nightgown. I’m not sure if she has worn it to bed or not, but I would not be surprised. She really likes that and the toys and art supplies you sent as well. John took pictures of her opening the packages, so I’ll try to get them on here before too long.
OK, off to make a birthday cake! Red velvet, if you are wondering.
Edited to add…here is a link to my post about red velvet cake.
