School was out around these parts for 3 days last week due to tons of snow and ridiculously low temps. Even though I homeschool, it affects my life. For one thing, we get to watch the neighbor girl, which is always fun. They all play together well, so I generally make it a very low-homeschool day so they can just mess around. They get a quasi-snow day at my house. One day I had 7, then 9 kids at my house. YIKES!
So you could tell it was a boring situation when my husband says, "Who wants to flush the new toilet?"
And all the kids excitedly ran up to the bathroom like it was a ride at Disneyland ... or the Hershey Park.
