Ice Age~



The rain started sometime during the night, the temperature dropped, and we awoke to an icy mess.  School delayed two hours!  I was just thankful our oldest made it home safely to her apartment last night after sitting for the family she is a nanny for.  The roads were a mess, many stranded with nowhere to go.  By mid-morning we had thawed out and life continued on.  Hubby and I spent the afternoon shopping, and then came home to wrap gifts.  I managed to wrap half of the girls things...so feeling a little less stressed! One more day of finals for the youngest, and then we will all take a much needed break!!!

Thank you for all of the prayers for Will and his family.  The funeral is tomorrow.  Our daughter will be going up to support Will.  It will be hard for her, as this is a first for her.

Sorry it was icy, but fun to get some 'wintery mix'! Unfortunately, your daughter is experiencing a painful part of life. Not much makes you grow up faster than realizing mortality. Love to your family.

I'm from Ohio, so we are used to snow and ice, but my sister lives in Atlanta and got into a car accident because of the ice down south. Even with being an experienced snow driver! Hope it clears up for you guys soon down there!

Will will never forget the way your family stood by him during this time. Y'all are his angels.

Wow, so strange reading about you dealing with so much snow and ice while it's summer here in NZ! :O
