I got another great email from a friend today letting me know what our new state motto is:
Illinois - Where our governors make our license plates
Maybe it's just me, but it made me giggle.
OK, dork that I am, this made me really miss my marching band days! :(
More proof that Italians are the most incredible people on Earth...My brother sent me this one today:
The weather here has been its usual schizophrenic self. It hit 50 yesterday, and this morning the windchill was below zero. The actual temperature hit about 10 degrees today. All four of my car doors were frozen shut this morning, despite letting my car run for almost 15 minutes before going outside. Thank goodness my son is practically a man now, because I had to use his muscle to get us in the car. However, I'm still walking around in my hooded sweatshirt, as it's not quite cold enough for a coat yet. ;-) I do keep my coat in the backseat, though, just in case my car breaks down or something.
The cold did keep some of my babies home today, which I fully expected. I had 6 out today! I shouldn't even admit it, but it was glorious! That's 1/4 of my class! If only that's the class size I had everyday.... We'd get so much more accomplished, that's for sure.
It's well past my bedtime, so I'll save the scoop about my son's party for next time.... ;-) Night, night!
