We taught the kids how to play euchre, I can only go to 5 points with them, totally lose my patience! I’m trying to teach them to be always paying attention and be ready, nothing worse than playing slow euchre!

I volunteered to go to the State Capital for the boys’ field trip, not realizing they were going on separate days – back to back, ugh, so I was pretty excited for the snow day that cancelled Ezra’s. He wasn’t too happy when Tobin got to go the next day, but we’re rescheduled for February.150109_CapitalFieldTrip_044
