My busy Monday.

This morning I had to take Andrew to school. The high school bus didn't run up our holler this morning. She was afraid that it would be slick. She was just being lazy, because the snow was completely gone. No snow at all! So when I got back home I called the bus garage and complained. Now if the road had been snow covered I would have understood, but that made me a little mad.

When I got back home, I cleaned house, baked some chocolate chip cookies for my boys! Richard included. He is a baby too. They loved them. But I didn't tell them that I burned the first batch and had to throw them out.

I missed my guild Christmas party this morning. I was in a rush taking Andrew to school that I forgot to take my guild gifts and supplies. I still had 2 hours to kill before the meeting, but I didn't want to have to make 2 trips town this morning. I called Sandy this afternoon, she said not alot of people were there. I think it was just too cold. Most of them are elderly and they don't get out alot.

When the boys got home from school, they did their homework so we could go on to the funeral home. Hunter was soooooo tired. He fell asleep writing his numbers. As you can see he has his "Horsey Quilt" with him.
I took the boys to the funeral home. Alot of Andrews friends were there. Everyone was taking it really hard. It was a very sad time for everyone. Hunter is very young but just doesn't understand even though he knew him. Andrew on the other hand it taking it very hard. What do you do? All that I knew to do was talk to Andrew, tell him how much that I love him and that I was there if he needed to talk.
Tomorrow is going to be another long day. Hunter has his school Christmas party tomorrow afternoon. Andrew wants to go to so I will be picking him up from high school and taking him to Hunter's school for him to spend time with everyone there. See Hunter's school is small and goes from kindergarden to the 8th grade. So that is where Andrew went to school last year. He still has tons of friends there. Actually the friend that he just lost was in the 8th grade, so that is why he wants to go over there tomorrow to be with everyone. Then Wednesday is the funeral. They are having it at the school. Then it is Christmas break since tomorrow is their last day. Hopefully, I will get some sewing done sometime in between some of all this.

I know this is hard on the children. We just never know when our life will be over with...we just need to be able to meet our maker and know we will be going to heaven.

Just give the boys an extra hug during the next few days.

You are like a busdriver. I hope your boys will get over the sadness.

Hunter looks so cute there! I'm sure your cookies were delicious and they loved them. Give your boys hugs and be there to listen to Andrew. I'm sure in the coming days he will want to talk.
