Pete and Abby
Shoveling the driveway for mom.

As the rest of the country has been blanketed and sometimes downright pounded with the fluffy white stuff this winter, we here in the Washington Metro area have had nothing. Okay, there have been flurries a couple of times, but never enough to play in, (unless you live in Olney). But today that changes! School has been cancelled, the kids are outside, and the hot chocolate is on the stove. Winter has finally arrived for the Willises. Of course it waited until: Jen is finally trying to get to the gym on a regular basis (she officially began training yesterday for the Charlottesville,VA half-marathon), Grant is going back to work on crutches after missing a week and a half for ACL repair surgery, and the kids already have a shortened week because of the end of the marking period, but, we'll take it!

Hot chocolate waiting inside. Ben skipped the cold but participated in the hot chocolate.

How are you liking that ice storm last night! I am not looking forward to chipping through that mess on the driveway. This is in no way a plea to the handicapped EQ president btw... My sister is here from Utah and we will manage just fine. Best of luck to you guys!

Good for you that you are starting to run again! we will definately have to do a race together some day! (I should probably actually start running again!) We also play ball every monday and wednesday morning at 9:30 if you ever feel like making the 35 minute trip up! (everyone just brings the kids and steps out when they have to...the game is by moms for moms!)
