There will be a 2 hour delayed opening of the Hillery Homeschool this morning.

A beautiful snow fell this morning. It was evident around 7:30 this morning that it would stick around. At least for a few minutes! There was no way I could keep the kids inside with all those fat flakes floating around. Cousin Jenna has been with us this week. She lives in the Knoxville area and sees very little snow. School can wait. Snow cannot.

By 10:30, the snow was pretty much gone. Hot chocolate in one hand, math books in the other, school got a nice late start.

No regrets.

I hope 2009 will be filled with moments of realizing we made the right choice.

"Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!" Psalm 34:8a

Taste snowflakes!

Oh, my daughter will be mad because we didn't get a flake. Kids just love snow, don't they? That's the beauty of homeschooling--you can be flexible and teach many wonderful, important things, not only what's in the school books. I have to give you credit--I have a hard time helping mine with her homework! In fact, she's been teaching me some things she learned in civics class!

Oh, by the way, thanks for the info on the milking cow. I realize we don't use nearly enough dairy to make it worthwhile.
