So, I thought Spring had sprung. I know, everyone says, this is North Dakota, you never know what's going to happen.

But to wake up this morning and see snow covering the ground...I was shocked. What???

I really didn't want to get the kids all bundled up, go out to the car (that was NOT parked in the garage because I didn't think I needed to do that anymore)...ugh. But of course I did. The day must go on. I never imagined that I (the girl whose parents said, uh, why don't you go get your license now, Emily?? I had been 16 for like 6 months) would get in the car and just drive in several inches of snow while it was still falling. I feel like such a WOMAN. Ha.

I think that as I type this blog, it has finally stopped snowing.

We are expecting 60's by Sunday. Maybe this is the last snow. I guess why I don't like it so much is that everyone else besides the Dakotas seems to be experiencing spring. OH well. That'll make me appreciate it that much more when we finally get the spring weather.

If it makes you feel any better, it was 47 degrees and raining this morning!

I feel your pain.. we have 3 inches of snow! Now it's raining,but it's going to change back to snow tonight! It's "great" to be home! :)
By the way your new house is beautiful! Post some pictures after it becomes HOME... you know... once the toys cover the floor! Seriously, I would love to see it once you've moved in... maybe we should just come visit. One more thing... when are you coming back to Family Camp?

Sorry, but we are in the same boat here in Denver. We have had some spring like temps at different times, but it has also snowed twice in the last 2 weeks and we are expecting snow all day on Friday here. Just wanted you guys to know we are dealing with it also. No kids here yet so it is much easier for us I'm sure. Hope all is well with you and Jody and the church.

Bethany prays for snow everyday. She says Jesus, I want to pay snow.

well... not really on everyone else getting spring... I am in Anderson SC and we haven't been above about 50* for days now! There are many crops that are totally ruined because of this late freeze. I am bumbed about the flowers and trees, but the farmers will take a hit, along with all of us at the grocery store this year!
