Snow Day Futility

January 11th, 2011

School was canceled yesterday due to snow.

The CD called home and told the boys to shovel the drive.

When I gave them these instructions, the following conversation took place…

Boy – We can’t shovel the driveway.  It’s still snowing!

Boy 2 – Yeah!  That’s like watering trees in the rain!

Boy 3 – Dad waters trees in the rain all the time.


  • Kay in KCMO:

    No doubt boy 4 was making himself scarce. :)

  • Boy #4 is still your little baby and can’t possibly be old enough to shovel, right? At least that’s the conversation that I have with myself when thinking about my wee little 9 year old! Seriously though Rechelle, I can’t believe how grown up the boys are. Time goes too fast.

  • I really, really have been enjoying the photos of late, but please, oh, please, oh, please….More Show Cat photos. I need a big fluffy kitty fix!

    • Rechelle:

      I’ll try to get one for you Lucy. They are very lazy of late. And very wooly.
