TIME: 3:44 PM
PLACE: The front yard
The two older kids went back to school today. They are off again tomorrow due to teacher's conferences. StellaDella wanted to build a snowman so bad today. I persuaded her to wait until her brother and sister came home from school. Monkeyboy went out with her and built a snowman. I provided the carrot, button eyes and bottle caps for the buttons. Did you realize that snowmen are St. Louis Cardinal fans? Spring training starts when the pitchers and catchers report in Jupiter, Florida on February 14th then work out the next day. The first Grapefruit League game is February 28th, when the Cards host the Marlins. Opening day at Busch Stadium is April 1st, vs. the Mets. I'm ready to sit in the sun and enjoy some beer, a brat, peanuts and watch some baseball.
