It's Stake Conference this weekend and Ben was gone at a meeting from 4-6 p.m. The kids and I spent the time coloring on huge pieces of paper, made forts, and set up blockades around the main floor of the house (blockades were not my idea, I was going with Eli's plans).
Eli and Charlie were so cute playing together--it makes a huge difference if I'm playing right there with them (compared to when I'm trying to make dinner or something and expecting/willing them to play peacefully together :). I love those moments when you can just play and be crazy with your favorite little guys.
Ben came home and I went to the adult session tonight. The main roads weren't too bad from the snow, but when I went up and over the train tracks (a tiny hill) and realized my car was not stopping like I thought it would because the road was so slick and I was sliding downhill.
There was a split second where I panicked because I saw cars coming and I wasn't sure my car would stop in time. I slammed hard on the brakes (ABS kicked in thank goodness) and turned the wheel slightly. The car skidded but didn't slide into the main street as cars zoomed by. I was still shaking by the time I got to church. Who's ready for summer????
On a different note, I really liked this column in the Chicago Tribune on BYU's principles related to the suspension of Brandon Davies. It's quite the contrast from the news this week of a Northwestern professor allowing a sex toy demonstration to his students after class. Seriously Northwestern???
