Winter returned

All our snow was gone.
Everything was drying up nicely.
The grass appeared to be starting to green up even.
It was lovely.
Until yesterday brought about ten to 12 inches of snow. Wind too. We've got drifts three feet deep on the driveway and will probably spend a good chunk of time outside today moving snow.

It is still February and winter, but that little taste of spring was sure nice.

The kids are all doing well at school.

Colton's graduation date has been set. May 13th! I'm giddy with excitement for him!
The world is his oyster. Wide open in front of him. He can go anywhere, do anything.
Exciting times!
Chyann continues to excel and be successful at college. She will be home in March for spring break. We are all looking forward to having her here for an extended period. With any luck the weather will be nice and we can ride horses. I have been working with them every few days so hopefully they wont be too wild and crazy when we do ride.
Picture from last time she was home.

Caden is in the school play Annie which will open towards the end of March. Between play practice, baseball practice and school work that kid is always busy. Baseball tryouts are next weekend and he is ready to strut his stuff!

Work for me has been busy. It's a good gig. I can't complain at all.
The little taste of spring we had got me thinking about my gardening plans. I'm excited to get outside and plant. Can't wait for that first fresh tomato.

That's all I've got.
Have a good weekend.
Stay warm.

So it has been 43 days since I have talked to you all.

43 days of crazy shit.
Everything from snow and ice storms, power outages, no water due to well problems -twice, hospitalizations, vehicle accidents, the flu, injured horses, cats with diarrhea, hot tub malfunctions, family member with a terminal illnesses, a clown running the country, nephew got married, my parents will be great grandparents this summer (my brothers kids), fish classes, Dean's list, feeding birds, baseball, broken resolutions and more.

I've laid in bed at night, while unable to sleep, writing interesting and funny blog posts with the intention of writing them down and saying hello first thing the next morning before work. However all the witty things I thought I had to say disappear from my head in the cold light of day and with each day that passed, it was harder to sit down and write.

Here I am today though, short on time as its baseball bat try out day. Baseball season starts soon ya know. Although for us it's turned into a year round thing.

I'll be back soon.
