Field Trips

I know.  It's been 10 months since my last post.  I don't know why I can't do this on more of a regular basis.  I did notice that my last post was titled snowpocalypse. Gross.  I'm not sure why I even documented that nightmare.  Just about the time I thawed, the leaves are changing colors and I'm heading out on field trips to Robinette's with my son's first grade class. 

If there was ever a dream to chaperone field trips, it's been shattered.  It's anything but a dream.  I'll spare you the details of the 45 minute bus ride with 2 puking kids or me playing whack-a-mole to get them to sit down on the bus ride home after being hopped up on donuts and cider.  Instead I'll show you pictures of these darlings learning about how to make apple cider.  That's where it's at!

Snowpocalypse 2014

It's been about a decade since I've posted on the blog.  Since we've been buried alive over the last month with snow, I thought I'd document it.  Therapy is being scheduled for my lack of sun intake.  Picture me crunching on Vitamin D pills.  Does anyone want to get in on the group rate?  There have been statistics thrown around like a rag doll about the amount of white stuff we've survived.  As of early Thursday morning, Holland has received over 96".  Oh, what the heck..let's just say 100 since we got dumped on last night for a couple hours.  Rumor has it that we are going to get another round on Saturday.  I've lost count of the snow days.  8?  Even my husband, the teacher, is sick of snow days.  Say what??  Yes, you heard that right...he was ready to go back.  I'm not sure if I should be offended. 

In the meantime...I really do have some joy.  I promise!  This is some of it...
