December 14th ~ An Adventure

As I awoke this morning...silence.
Even now, as I sit here in my kitchen - the world is silent.
Covered in a mantle of white.

I'm thinking back to our day yesterday -- a snow day for most.  Since we homeschool, we don't really do snowdays.  My reasoning is that we take enough random days off for travel or adventures.  But, halfway through the day yesterday, my husband and I decided that this day would be an adventure.  While reading the paper, he found a theater that has $5 tickets on Mondays with free popcorn.  Doesn't that just make you want to pull out your mukluks and tramp through the snow --wondering if the theater will even be open on the other end of town?  Well, that's exactly what we decided to do - much to our kids delight.  We were off on a Harry Potter adventure.

Oh, the theater was open when we got there.  There were three girls working behind the counter who looked at us as if we were nuts.  That was okay, because we were feeling a little nuts, actually.  We had the theater almost to ourselves (what a shocker).  When we exited, we were greeted by darkness -- and more snow.  The ride home was long and slow, but we were lucky enough to be able to sail through the Little Caesars' drive-through -- a nice treat since I was wondering what kind of unprepared meal would meet us at home.  Our evening ended on a sweet note with some spur-of-the-moment tollhouse bars.

I'm thankful for my husband's spirit of adventure -- 
and that he is teaching that to our kids.
These are the days we will remember.
