Yes, this kid is now 40 years old.
Happy Birthday Jared
This picture was taken when he was in the third grade. The school had a "Pioneer Days" study week where the kids had to dress according to the era they chose for that week as they learned about that time. Sometimes it went all the way back to the pilgrims and progressed accordingly. You can tell by the clothes which it is, I'm sure. The hat he has on is the one I blogged about once, and yes, it is still being worn by Jack.
Waiting for the big storm here. Not looking forward to it but what can you do. All stocked up here and ready. I hope and pray that it doesn't cause any serious problems for people needing life saving help. Flight cancellations etc. are nothing when it comes right down to it. Inconvenient yes. It's the lifeline flights that are the serious ones and the possiblity of power outages. School closings are another inconvenience for working parents but I would think they have a plan to deal with such things. I do suppose the areas where snow is a rarity have difficulty though. A friend Kathy who lives down south is happy as pig in mud that it's coming. I worry about that girl, lol.
Enough prattle. Off to do something constructive. Take care, be safe and stay warm.
