Here's Casa Rogé at the onset of the Spring blizzard. The kids have a snow day and school is closed as are most businesses. Mom went to work and I left right after this picture to try and put in a day at the office. Hard to believe that it has been in the 70's the past few weeks. Take note that the flowering pear tree in the front yard there was already in bloom.
About halfway to work, about 20 minutes later, I got the call that our company was closing the doors for the day. Heidi works at CU and her campus had already closed, but she remained at work to catch up on some projects. I went back home to enjoy a free day with the kids!
Around noon or so, it was snowing so hard that I couldn't see down the street! It stopped snowing around 2pm and I took the opportunity to shovel the two feet of snow off the drive so that Heidi could get into the garage. She was on her way home. The kids helped me shovel and they played in the snow a little, too. So what is there to do when you're snowed in and mom and dad is home? Family games, of course! Here's a picture of Heidi playing twister with the kids!
Not a fair match when you take into account the youthfulness and flexibility of the kids! But Heidi was a trooper! I do "papa-sandwich", she does twister.Heidi wants me to tell you all that Kole used the word "hexagon" in a sentence the other day. He constantly amazes us with his vocabulary and he never forgets something you tell him. I often forget this sometimes and I wonder if he really understands what I am telling him. I'm convinced that he does know because he regularly recants the stories to his mom and sibs. I stand in awe when he does. He doesn't forget the details, either.
Julia is doing well in school, too and her English is coming along quite nicely now. We still are working with her OT and speech issues, but four weeks ago she turned a corner and it is like a light has come on in her brain. She is making remarkable strides and is quite funny, often cracking a joke and making us laugh. I am so happy for her, she is an amazing young lady. It will be a privilege to watch her grow and develop over the years.
