Yet Again...

That is right. We had another snow storm. No church yesterday. Schools were cancelled today and are already canceled for tomorrow. Someday is will be summer. I just don't know when. We have gotten a total of 515 cm of this winter. That is 16' 10" for you Americans. 

This is our road looking south, toward town. Yep... no one is getting down there anytime soon. We are very thankful the feed truck came on Saturday and the milk truck made it here yesterday morning before things got really bad.
 The tractor tracks are from Wilbert show when to blow the snow out of his parents drive way. He also pulled out a car this morning for someone who decided not to heed the RCMP's advice and was trying to get to town.

I am really thankful for two purchases I made this winter. Good quality snow pants. And just two weeks ago I found some great snow boots on clearance.  These things have made it so much more enjoyable to be outside.
 Wilbert has the kids in the tractor with him as the kids and I needed a break from each other. Here they are moving the snow from in front of the building by Wilbert's parents house.
 And finally a picture for Wilbert's parents of there house. They are still in Uganda. We will try to have it dug out for them by the time they get home! :)

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.
