Unexpected blizzard

March 10, 2013


Well. Not entirely unexpected, but it was weird. The weather the past few days was fairly nice, and on Friday night we actually had thunderstorms. It was strange to have a big, blowy snow after all that. It was a perfect day for holing up in the house after church in my pajamas, though!

*We interrupt this post to say “Happy Birthday, Deborah!”*

Last week Bethany (Deborah’s daughter) brought by the following poem. At first I was just enamored of the cuteness of her spelling and her thoughtfulness at noticing the poem’s author (Ralph, Wally and Emme are named for him), but today I actually read it for what it was.

How beautiful. I don’t often read poetry, but I’m thinking that maybe I should.

Emme liked it, too.

    Happy Birthday, Deborah!!!! So glad you’re back in Nebraska, even though you were stranded up in the northern parts for a bit.

    Speaking of homes, have you seen this show Lauren: “You Live in What?” I can’t find a clip of the show but last night I thought you might like the lighthouse that was bought & transformed into a home.

    While I was reading the poem, I was wondering what has become of all the students I’ve had who were so good at poetry. Do they keep writing as adults? Or what about the kids who were such great artists? Hopefully they found jobs where they could use those skills. Or maybe they continued to do that in their spare time?

    Thank you! I made it back to Seward over the snow-packed roads. So I’m reading to start celebrating!
