Snow Day!

Woke up this morning and could not see out of my bedroom window (On the second floor) The snow drift from the roof below it was so tall. We also could not get out our front door.

After it stopped blizzarding outside and the sun came out Emma and I bundled up and went out to check out the awesomeness. The snow banks out front came up to my waist and Emma could barely move. SO FUN!
We slid down the stairs, fell into snow and started to shovel out. only it was no use and BORING! So we woke Matt up. Him and Sophia joined us.

The snow walls the snow blower made were so cool for the kids. And the night before we set up the jungle gym with a tarp over it hopeing it would make a useable sturdy igloo.. Since the snow was not wet enough it didn't stick as well as we hoped but still fun.

I did not intend to be away so long

It's been over a year since I wrote in here. whoa. I never intended to be away so long but every time I thought about witting something I either was at a loss for words or I found myself doing something else instead.

I start a new job on Monday at QCC in the financial aid department. I'm not gunna lie I am nervous for sure. I'm still taking classes full time. The good news is though that I am nearly done with my associates degree. After this semester I only have 3 classes to go and my plan is to finish them this summer.

The girls are amazing. Emma is in first grade now. I'm not sure when that happened. She is an amazing student, she loves school and loves her teachers! She is also in girl scouts and looks forward to those days. We are hoping swim lessons in the summer and then karate and/or dance in the fall.

Sophia is doing great. I'm a little upset I didn't follow through on my gut feeling that something was wrong with her hearing. I'm trying not to beat myself up about it because we are taking the right steps now but it sucks knowing that this could have been dealt with a lot sooner.
She is starting speech therapy on Monday and will have surgery March 1st.

Good things are happening in the Greenwood house.
