1/12/11 Early birds freeze their butts off!


Takinimage g Collin and Erin to the Science Olympiad at 6 a.m. was a chilly endeavor!  I later heard that it was actually –3, but our van only registered 0F. 

I had some fun today.  I saw my friend Kim and her 2 kiddos: Karis and Ian who are growing sweeter every day.  Then Alan went to the dentist for sealant on his back molars and a small cavity repair.  Finally when Collin and Erin got home they could share that the Science Olympiad team won 1st overall.  Erin and Clayton got 1st in Ornithology and her “compute this” team got 2nd (thanks to Brayden).  Buyah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Collin was an alternate so his job was to go with the team and help keep things running smoothly, help Mrs. Riffel keep up on her Diet Dr. Pepper and so on.  Even his sister said he was very helpful!

Being a parent is worth every sacrifice - even getting out in the cold!

When we were on vacation in the mountains of New Mexico over the holidays (see Staci's blog) we encountered negative 17 degrees, 18inches of snow, and one night 80 mph gusts of wind. Sounds like Kansas doesn't it!
