Outrage aside, things have been going along pretty much as usual. Our roof started leaking in a new place. Thanks to all the rain we've had today it should soon become evident whether or not the latest patch will hold. And the weather is still cold. (see photos. okay. the snow is unusual, but the cold is not, and it Should be -- the calendar says "spring," and I want warm breezes and sunshine!)
However, aside from defective weather, things are fine. Everyone is healthy, we have food, heat, books, Dr. Who on Netflix, etc. Not so shabby, really.
Katie has been drawing. Here are a couple of her pictures...
And Travis had to write a poem today for grammar class. It is called "Pie."
Do you know where the secret lies,
Of how to make the greatest pies?
Not in a secret treasure trove.
Not even in a magic stove.
To make the perfect pastry crust,
In lard and flour you must trust.
To make a pie both moist and sweet,
Grind up some chocolate bunny feet.
Once all the steps have been completed,
And all your pie themed fears defeated,
Just sit down with your own fair share,
Because good pie is just so rare!
(I gave him a little help with the middle stanza, as he was a little vague on what goes into a pie crust.)
