Actually, they have been all year as far as Lauren and I are concerned as her English class is British Literature. One of the families in Lauren’s class hosted a British dinner on Sunday. Everyone brought their favorite (?) British meal (after looking up recipes on the internet). From Herby Toad in the Hole to Bangers and Mash to Bubble and Squeak to scones (we know what those are, right?) it was a great meal. We also played some games based on the novels we read this year. Then we finished off the evening watching Jane Eyre.
Jenna has been back at school for a week and a half. We got a letter in the mail today saying she had made the President’s List for last semester. Unfortunately, there was no money attached to that honor.
It has snowed the last two Sundays, but no more than a dusting. Tomorrow is another chance and then Saturday as well. After a warm December, it has finally turned cold. The morning started out at 12°, and if it got above freezing today, it didn’t by much. One good snow and I’ll be ready for summer again.
