We're not in Minnesota anymore

We walk to school everyday.  We might as well, it's only a few blocks away.  Besides, there's not a bus.  The only problem is that sometimes it's, well, a little chilly.

Here is an action shot of us at the school.  Heidi and Molly are wearing all their winter clothes - warm jackets, hats, mittens, three blankets, etc. - you know, the basics.  Emily started out that way too but got a little warm and had to start shedding during the hat and gloves on the walk.  Maybe it wasn't as cold as I thought it was.

Just for fun, when I got home I checked the temperature.  It was 43 degrees.  When I was a kid, 43 degrees meant Easter.  It meant the Burba girls were on their deck sunbathing.  It meant I would try to play outside in short sleeves.  

43 degrees has changed for me.  

I don't know if the Northstar State will ever let me back in.

I can't believe how cold it has been...too cold for me and I was raised in Utah around snow.
