January Winter

I just counted the days I've been to school since December 18th, only7 days. The 19th of Dec. was a snow day as were the 14th, 15th, and 16th of January. Martin Luther King day is in there, as well as me having some virus that has kept me home for the past 3 days. So 7 days out of 35, and one of those 7 days was a two hour delay.

So far this year, we have had more snow then last, and last year was a record breaker. We also have had a tie breaker for coldest day ever -35 without windchill. It was -50 with the wind chill. Brr! Those were our last 2 snow days, subzero days. Way too cold for kids to stand at bus stops waiting to get picked up, or walking to school.

This photo is of Zoey on our deck. Look at all that snow. We had 3 snow falls in 5 days. 3 inchs, 4 inches and 7 1/2 inches. Wow!

This weekend, Kevin and I drove down to Centerville and visited with his family for a couple of days. It was nice seeing the Centerville crew. We haven't been down there since June when Kevin's dad passed away. It was a little hard being there without him around.

Kevin's mom is temporarily in a rehab senior center. She had pneumonia in December, and still needs some help getting things done and getting back on her feet. She needs our prayers because she has never been a strong woman, and this has set her back alot.

This photo was taken on a warm Memorial Day in 2003 in Centerville, Iowa. I think this is the last photo we got with mom, dad, and all 6 kids. We were together other times, weddings, babies, etc, just never thought to get a photo. How sad.

Sad not to have the photo, but at least you take the time to get together. So many people don't anymore.

Hi guys. Dave here, using Kym's identity. I just became facebook friends with Kris. I looked for Kevin and Diana to be friends with, too (found kasey). No facebook?!? How very last month of you. I started 5 days ago. It's REALLY interesting what people will post for the world to see...
