A few years ago I decided to become a drop site for them. I knew there were people who live nearby that would be interested in ordering and then I wouldn't have to worry about picking up our orders. The minimum order is $550 and we don't order that much so I got the word out and we get a delivery every two weeks (we don't make the minimum every time, but usually). I does require being available on the delivery day, waiting for the driver to call before knowing when they will arrive, and then answering the door for those who can't be here to meet the truck (most people). Still, if the order is over $1000, I get $15 off my next order. The discount goes up with the price, but we haven't gotten that high yet.
Honestly, it would be much more work without the boys, but with them I have to do very little but open doors and call for their help. They have impressed many people by generously carrying often heavy boxes and bags to cars.
While we wait for the truck they often expell energy by wrestling and fighting with each other. Henry has little patience for their shenanigans and I admit to looking away, but it all happens with smiles and I'm glad they are brothers.

So, I never said how I liked the Blogsy app after I finished my last post. There is only a small learning curve, but since my time is always full of constant interruptions it took me a couple of days to complete. Also, I don't know how to go back and correct anything that has been posted, or if that is possible. I haven't looked into it, though I did make a punctuation error; it is still there.
On to a new post regarding our unusual weather this last week.
To avoid boring details let me say that we had snow, rain, hail and sun at various times on Sunday alone. We were all hoping to get a snow day and a break from school, work and childcare, but no such luck. Except for Greg. He finally went to work Thursday, but they sent him home because of the incredibly heavy rain. He did work a full day on Friday. It was nice to have him home, but no pay is not so nice. We will manage fine.
Monday morning the snow began falling in big thick flakes. We could absolutely not believe they didn't cancel school. The kids at the bus stop, there are probably 15, were all throwing snowballs and running around through the snow. The parents were taking pictures wondering if the bus was actually going to show up. It did and the kids looked as though they were being hauled off to prison their faces were so sad and sorry for the play to be ending. Our kids did build a small snowman before we went in to breakfast.
Lincoln and Taylor and Olivia as we are leaving for the bus stop on the other side of the complex.
By the time school was out it was hard to remember what the snow had looked like and the snowman was sinking sadly away.
The rest of the week was pouring rain which caused terrible flooding in other areas. We were thankful to miss out on that consequence.
