I took the boys to see Battledrum at The History Museum a few weeks ago.  It was sleeting out and I don't do well driving in weather like that but I was determined that we were going to see this play.  I knew it would resonate with both of them.  We took Manchester Rd the whole way there and I drove slowly... we finally made it.  Ben slipped on the ice on our way in.  I was doubting my choice of coming.  But the play was fantastic and they both got so much out of it.  Sharing in these experiences with my kids make up some of my favorite moments as a mom.

A Flashback to Summer

We are having our first and probably only snow day this year.  I think we were the only school in STL that had school called off.  Thanks Mr D :)    I LOVE snow days!  All commitments are off the table and we can all just hang out, have guiltless screen time, read, build a fire, and chill. I do have to work tonight but I'm not thinking about that until about 4pm.  So in the meantime I'm reminiscing about summer...these days can't come soon enough!
