Our first snow in Canadian has been very eventful. We have been snowed in for a couple of days now. School was suppose to start at 10:00am yesterday morning. We are use to snow but the hills have not helped us! Yesterday morning we got our kids up to take to school bundled them up and off they tried to go. The suburban got stuck right off the bat. The pickup wouldn't start on Wednesday and still wouldn't start on Friday morning. So we went to the Ranger for help and it wouldn't start!!! So I called Aidan's school to let them know he would be extremely late or wouldn't make it. I was going to walk the two youngest since we are only 2 blocks away. It took us a little bit to get to the top of the street the drifts and steps to the top of our yard took a while. Then we started walking the drifts were waist deep for Maude in some parts and the cars started sliding towards us and we hadn't even made it to the house next door!! So we turned around and stayed home. Today we were pulled out of the field, the pickup and ranger got jumped! We are back in business. I took the kids to a park to sled after they got bored with our alley. Then when we got back to house we pulled them around in the ranger dragging them on their sleds. Someone said "Why does this stuff always happen to you?" I think God and I get along really well and we have a good sense of humor. He would only joke with those of us who take it really well ;)
The picture of Maude is how close she came to sledding into a bench!
