Happy Frozen Cupid Day
The local schools were on a 2-hour delay for all of last week, due to extreme* cold conditions. This week, they decided to close school both yesterday and today because of snow and ice. They even closed DePauw today, the first time in about thirty years. And Mary's seminary was closed yesterday and on a very short schedule today. John Scalzi's picture says it all. Fortunately I had already purchased a valentine card and took Mary out for a dinner date on Monday, so I'm not as unprepared as John. Meanwhile, I'm trying to prepare for my conference while taking care of the kids, which mostly involves watching them sled down our hill continuously. Though today they decided to have school at home. There were math problems, reading practice, and story time, with the sledding as recess. Throw in some violin and cello practice this afternoon and we'll call it a day.
