written 1.30.14 – We had a wind chill of zero today. It actually felt warm. It has been about five degrees with a wind chill of negative twenty to forty all week. We don’t usually have this cold of a winter…this is so odd. The schools were closed. Beth was upset, she loves school…really she loves seeing all of her friends. She spent a lot of time on Facebook with her friends and on YouTube listening to her music. It is so sad to see her sitting in the chair looking at the computer all day, but we don’t have any choices. School is closed, all of the roads are closed because of the cold and the snow. She can’t go out and all of her friends that used to live on this street have moved away.
We have a parent student teacher meeting tonight at Maggie’s high school to look at the her progress. We get our kids transcripts and see if they are on schedule. It is good to get together once a year with the counselor and Maggie to see if she is on track.
William said that he would start volunteering at church. He believes and goes to church with us…only because I told the kids that they had to go to church as long as they live at home. What they believe is between them and God, but they must go to church. We also volunteer about once a year as a family at church, he participates in that as well. We can’t volunteer at church every week unless everyone volunteers. I could volunteer with any of the kids that want to come with me at the early service and then go home during the middle service and get the other kid or kids, and then go back to see the last service, but I am too tired for all of that driving on a Sunday morning. And…the one or ones that volunteered with me would need to go home to pick up the others too, I couldn’t leave them alone at the church without me there. They are great kids and they are older but they aren’t that quiet when I am not there. So when William said that he would volunteer too, it was very exciting!
