Template #153

We survived the cold!
It bottomed out at -26 F last night. It got to -47 F not to far from here though. Last night my boyfriend got out of class at 10pm and on his way home the throttle on the truck stuck open! Not a good thing. This morning the school district held school as usual no delay or nothing. The reason given for not calling school off was that the district thought to many kids would be left home alone. I would rather have mine home safe then getting frost bite waiting for the bus. I did end up keeping them both home today. The throttle on the truck is screwed after last night and the van refused to start for me this morning. It did finally start this afternoon after the temp had risen to a whopping -6 F for the high for the day.
The kids cheered at first when I told them they were staying home but they soon found out that just because you miss school doesn't mean a free day to do whatever. There was chores to do and lessons to be reviewed. After they were done they did get to watch a couple of movies.

Journal reads: Jump, Jump, Jump! That's what you love to do! At home you and your brother will hold hands and jump up and down in place, over and over and over again! So when we took you to Jump Street you had a blast! The big trampolines were a bit much, but the kiddie area was built just for you!
There are two things I forgot to do with this LO. I forgot to include the date and I should have run spell checker! I just discovered both when I uploaded the layout! Spell checker is my best friend! If it wasn't for this feature you would be trying to sort out the jibberish. Oh I can spell but my typing sucks! My mind moves a lot faster then I can type and I constantly have to stop and reread what I have typed. I do have to admit that this blog has helped my typing speed a bit!
