Outside my window... The light is pearl grey, sifting through low clouds. A coverlet of snow lies on the ground. The Mesa has muscled its way out of the clouds and is showing off a mantle of snow over its dark blue shoulders.
I am hearing... Theresa playing "Two Horn Pipe" on the piano, William and Gabe chattering and playing with an airplane Gabe made out of a kleenex box, Anna asking me to check her spelling on a paper she's bringing to her teacher about the first Thanksgiving.
I am thinking... I'd better get a move on and get the kids to school. It only takes five minutes to go down the driveway and around the bend to school so it's easy to take time for granted. It's pitiful. Here we are so close to school, and we've come perilously close to being late on more than one occasion. How would we explain that to the Sisters?
(And proving that this four-year-old's got the patter down cold and we don't really need to bother with correcting him, because he can do it himself. Which is progress, I guess)
I'm sharing these photos... of a day in the life at our house. Here's the rest of the family hard at work after Theresa, Anna, and Gabe headed off to school this morning. (Not pictured: me, obviously hard at work blogging and taking pictures... ;)

And then there's William. Ain't it the life? I wish I were four years old!
