It's So Cold Grace Chattered Her Tooth Right Out!

The snow pictures are from Monday though it has been super cold with various combinations of precipitation off and on ever since.

One can only do so much in the area of snow man construction within the window of a two-hour school delay.

After weeks of barely letting anyone LOOK at her tooth, let alone actually try to PULL it, said chomper finally just leaped to freedom as we were leaving the Wilco store yesterday. Thankfully, Grace caught the slippery little sucker in her hands and didn't swallow it.

Grace has been to school ONCE so far this week. A two hour delay means "No School" when you're in half-day kindergarten. She has been having a lot of difficulty going to school lately anyway. We're still trying to get to the bottom of her not wanting to go, but the snow days have made my life easier, at least temporarily, in not having to endure the struggle.

This morning she came to get into bed with me, saw the snow outside and said, "Is there no school today?" To which I replied, "Well, for you there isn't. Do you know why?"

... get ready for this one, folks...

"Because God loves me and wants me to be at home so he made it snow..."

... you know... she's right. She has been needing some extra time with mommy and she's had two unexpected days of it this week and she won't be behind in class.

God is taking care of her.

God is taking care of all of us.

Peace, Ya'll.

I LOVE IT!! Good going Grace!!
And I like all those happy faces too. I've even heard from other folks (that don't make comments to blogs) that your making their "heart smile again". Marty is a shy one! Anyway, loved the pictures! And the comments.
God Loves you and so do I !

That is too sweet, what Grace said.

Oh, I love missing teeth pictures!

And I've always believed that we are given exactly what we need, exactly when we need it.

Hmmm, makes me think. I may have to do a post about this today, if I can get the words out. That way I don't have to leave a four page comment here again. :)

Congratulations on the lost tooth. And Yay for snow days!

Just wanted to mention that my post today is not based on this. It's one I'd previously written (about PMS no less). :)

It's taking more time than I have today and the PMS one was already written. Not that today's isn't deep, I just didn't want you heading over there thinking it has anything to do with God.

Have a great weekend!

Max just lost a tooth too! You realize I'm envious of how much more snow you got! (Though, I have taken the time to stop and appreciate the snow I did get).
