After their three-week break the kids went back to school today. Except they didn't. Because we had another snow day.
This is the third time the buses have been cancelled and the second time the kids have spent the day with us.
It was warm enough, hovering around 0C/32F, to go sledding, and we had been planning on doing just that, but life intervened by giving Sue a most copious nosebleed that went on and on and on.
Danica was quite marvellous, sitting with her and taking extensive notes on what was happening and when. What a trooper!
Poor JJ was traumatized. He's a very sensitive young fella and it upset him for quite a while to think that all was not well with his grandmother, but he came around in time.
Eventually, we three were able to go out and shovel snow.
When I thought we were done, Jonathan wanted me to dig out a fort as I have done in other years. So I did.
Then he had some fun jumping off the snowbank.
We went in and played a couple of games of Sorry before getting back to phone games and such.
Maybe we'll get that elusive sledding in yet.
