Kids off to school
Good, hard workout for myself

Hang out/family time ~ probably with American Idol on in the background.
Bath night for Smiley
Chat with Sassy's friend's dad
Get Sassy, Action and Smiley ready for and settled in bed
Put my feet up and relax.
But I received a phone call at 6am and my plans kind of went right out the window.
The phone call was from the kids' school.
Today is a SNOW DAY!
This will be the first snow day since Sassy started going to preschool 7 years ago. (When I was growing up it seemed we had at least a couple per season)
The kids are still asleep and they will be beyond EXCITED to hear the news.
Me, well I will need to adjust my schedule and my plans for the day.
I guess a snow day is a small reminder to me from God, that I am not in charge. He is truly in charge.
Many are the plans of the human heart,
but it is the decision of the LORD that endures.
The kids were/are excited
their typical cereal breakfast turned into french toast and strawberries
and now I am savoring the laughter and giggles as they play together...nicely for now anyway :)
Oh, and what are they playing you ask?
School, of course!
