Somehow it has suddenly become quite a production to get out the door. Hats? Check. Mittens? Check. Jackets? Check. Furry fleece bear suit? Check. Then-get-out-the-door-absolutely-as-soon-as-possible-or-else-everyone-is-hot-and-grumpy. I am encouraged by the knowledge that with repetition, everything becomes easier. And boy are we getting lots of practice with our winter get-out-the-door-routine. Whether its dropping someone off at school or going out to play, we seem to have revolving doors in this house. I hear that this winter is supposed to be a cold one and I am secretly a little excited. I think we're overdue for some snow, and I have at least two people in this house that agree with me.
