This is my oldest boy, He is 15 1/2. We will call him Conway. When I snapped this picture he had just landed on his backside in the small stream that disects our pasture. We had broken out of the house because a severe case of cabin fever has set in, and we definitely don't want to succumb to it.
I was planning on running some errands today, but when I got up to get the treeman out to work, we had gotten more snow, which made the roads even slicker. He left around 6 am, and called me after he had gotten down the road a bit. He said that within 2 miles of the house, he had already turned sideways in the road twice. So needless to say, I won't be venturing out today. Maybe tomorrow.
This is my baby boy. He is 12. I will call him Guitar boy. He is a very talented guitar player. He had just jumped over the same stream that big brother fell into. THEY have really enjoyed this snow and these snow days.

They went back to school after Christmas break on January 5. Well, between then and now, they have actually attended 6 days of school. We haven't really had that much snow, but we have had a lot of ice. Two days that they missed were because of below zero weather. We live in an area where a lot of children walk to the bus, like mine, they walk 1 mile to the bus stop, when the weather is good. I drive them out most of the time, but there are others who aren't so lucky. So they cancel school. Which means that they will go uup into June, and they start back the 1st week of August. I hate it for them that they get a shortened summer, but what can you do?

This is the trees beside our house looking like they are iced with white icing...beautiful huh?

And here is one more picture of the sun peeking out over the top of the ridge. It's gorgeous, but the light is kinda cold, I think.
My mom in North Carolina was telling me last night that it was warm enough there yesterday to go around in short sleeves...I think she is trying to make me jealous. What do ya'll think?
