So times are a changing here in the King household. Almost 2 teens live here, and soon to be a bunch of pre-teens to follow. :) Trying to...

so this was taken a couple days ago.
rabbit hunting in the snow.
i thought it was a freezing day for this, but, what do i know?

what a day.
woke up with a raging headache.
that quickly took a downward spiral into a migrainey kind of headache.
i got sick. the whole sha-bang.
thankful for a husband who cancelled my dentist appointment.
took the kids to school.
took the other 2 for a 2 hour field trip.
and went to be the homeroom mom in kaden's class, for the valentine's party.
while i tried to keep it together under my covers. in the black.

he really shined today.
thanks matt. xxoo.
love him forever. *

and here is to finding a new norm...maybe the kids will go to school for a full day tomorrow.
here's to hoping.
i feel like my house is a total wreck all the time.

but i think i told you that the last post.
dreaming of all things sunshiney and warm.

i am off to bed.
sleep tight.

ice storm. 2014.

(this is the generator shed, hence the door is open, because it was RUNNING for awhile.)

i guess i am officially going to call this the winter of no school.
i think we went to school 1 day this week.

1 DAY.

no school again today.
did you know at this hour 50% of chester county is STILL without electricity?

that means, we were for sure a priority.
but that doesn't explain why I still know farmers in Cochranville who are without electricity.
does that mean my husband yells louder and more often?
quite possibly.


yesterday we went swimming with some friends at Bird-In-Hand Family Inn's pool.
well. it is safe to say that I stayed in the hot tub MOST of the time.
but the kids had a great time.
we basically had the place to ourselves until the last half hour of our time.
awesomeness. right?

today. i think i am taking all five kids to see a movie.
i think it will work only because karolina STILL has a nuk and blankee, so i will take this along.
and she might just fall asleep.
frozen. that's the movie.
appropriate. don't ya think?

i know. i know.
karolina is STILL not potty trained AND still has her nuk.
this would have been the perfect opportunity to seize the day for that...
but alas, i just could not bear to tackle it when we cannot escape the house.

enjoy some pictures of God's handiwork this week.

Just a quick update here...

our power was finally restored sometime thru the night.

i am not sure how our district is fairing.
we are supposed to be a critical customer because of our farming operation,
which gives us priority,
but i did hear from a friend this morning, from Parkesburg, and they got their power back last night as well.

i did see a lot of Chester county schools are still off today,
as are we, 
POWER being the main issue.
760,000 was the number on the news today.
we were one of them.
whew. glad we are not anymore.

hope to post pictures from our ice storm soon.
thanks for all of you who were praying for us.
it is a little stressful not to have power when your chicken houses are FULL of chickens.
even with a generator.

hoping to take the kids on a fun field trip today.
will keep you posted.
