do we have to go back to winter??

Sixty degrees was the forecast yesterday. I never heard the actual high, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was 70*. It was awesome.

We were outside The Entire Afternoon. Between lunch and bedtime the kids had been all over the neighborhood, covered the entire driveway in chalk, fed the ducks at the pond around the corner, ended up barefoot in the sandbox and splashed in a couple of homemade puddles in the driveway.

May I remind everybody; this is February.
This is 5pm on a Wednesday evening in February in the midwest -and my kids are outside barefoot in shorts splashing in the driveway.
(and here it looks like they're praising the Lord for it! ha!)

(Bonus: we got the first scraped knee of the year)
(Hey- isn't February a little early for scraped knees??)

It's supposed to be 66* again today.

I'm sure we'll be punished with tornadoes tonight.

Did you know that it's supposed to snow on Saturday. The stupid weatherman predicted 1 to 3 inches. UGH!!! STL weather really SUCKS sometimes!!!

Ahh...Sawyer, what a sad face! He did get a nasty owie! Give him a big kiss for me! We just got about an inch of snow the other day and it was really frozen this morning as well. Last week I think we got into the high 50s and had sunshine, too! Our weather has been really crazy here this year -- LOTS of snow for Oregon!
Love, Mom/Gramma Debbie
