Blizzard Recap

I feel like the pictures all are starting to look the same now. It is just snow, snow and more snow. And even more coming tomorrow. But we are still having fun in it afterwards. My parents are coming to visit in May and they keep asking if the snow will be gone by then. And the answer is that I really don't know. This is a lot of snow.
Best part about this last snow storm? Wilbert's sister is staying with us for part of her March Break from University. We love having her around!
The snowplow! I see the snowplow! This was last night around 6:30.

Somewhere in here is the entrance to Joash's cave.

It is really dark in the barn right now.

This one shows you how high some of the drifts are

Can you find our round bales? It is getting pretty difficult for Wilbert to find and then get the feed out of all of the snow.
So feels the same. We dug out the toy room window today. The mountain outside of the kitchen gets taller and taller. But overall, we are doing well. The milk truck made it this morning around 6am. We have enough feed for the cows and more pig feed arrived today. We have lots of food in the house for all of the humans. So we are all right to hunker down for at least another 20cm (8") and 50-70kph winds tomorrow. Spring will come again!

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
