The other day, I quoted some scripture to Kevin about how “a prudent wife is from the Lord” (Proverbs 19:14 – Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD).
He smiled and looked at me and said, “Then where are YOU from?” Ha!
He’s so funny. Pray for Kev if you think of it today and tomorrow. He has to go to work – even in the ice storm. Being from Texas, we don’t have to drive on ice that often (and look stupid doing it)… so I’m praying not to be worried.
He called me and told me he was at work safe after he got there today. Tomorrow, though, it is supposed to be icy again (and may be more solid than the sludge we had today). My kids are begging me to go out in it. It sounds like sand falling from the sky on the windows.
So… what’s an ice-day look like for homeschoolers?
Well… here’s our list (of course, we start our days later than most since Kev is working 12-9 shift):
