Looks like eldest finally got a job with decent hours... which means... :barnie we will be down a car.

This is going to get tricky.

So... 2 kids started to dig out the old Ford, we will try to get the front end fixed for a reasonable cost....

After hours of work... not yet done

Snow/ hailing today... so yes, sure sign of spring.

;)

Also... I had to drive into town, and the road was almost completely snow free!!!!! :ep

Driving back up the hill someone was following me... it was funny...

I was driving all over the road, first in our lane, then completely in the oncoming traffic lane... then in the middle of the road... swinging first this way and then that....

Little 2 lane road.

I couldn't understand why the person behind me didn't follow my lead. :idunno

They would wiggle back and forth a bit, but never more than two feet out of our lane.

Couldn't understand if they are one of those people that "must follow the rules no matter what" or they just don't care if their car runs directly through the middle of six inch deep potholes.

I love homeschooling. Can't imagine getting rid of kids while they are still this young.
My wife asked if we were going to send our kids to pre-k. I said it's for people to lazy to be with their own kids or for 2 working parents as a free (at least you already paid) baby sitter/daycare.
The other day the principal said it is state law that they have to go to pre-k after the teacher asked the wife and she said no.:barnie:he Wife was talking to him because our oldest (3) is at the school for speech therapy. I'm still not sure if it's true or he just said that because he believes kids should and/or they get paid more for having more kids.
We were talking about sending them to school until 3rd grade for socialazation then home school for actual learning. With 2 hermit parents they don't get to play with or see any other kids very often.

Also I remember when the dry erase or chalk was used "to do" the math not the tablet. Doing a lot of math for work I still use soap stone and the wall or pen/pencil and paper when EVERYONE near me pulls out their phone for basic stuff. They tell me they have pipe fitter/construction apps for your phone. Then I pull out my flip phone.
