She is not afraid of snow for her household

That line would be from Proverbs 31.  And might I just mention that she didn't live in Chicago?  Where each child needs coat, boots, hat, gloves, and snow pants 

You would think I would know by now, having lived in the Chicago area for ~27 years, that the weather here is a little unpredictable.  Yes, we have been having a very mild autumn, but really that was no excuse for pretending that snow was not going to fall at some time.  As in falling yesterday afternoon with only light jackets hanging in the mud room.  All the winter gear is stashed in bags in the basement and I have yet to match each child up with the appropriate coat/pants/boots... that is assuming I have them.  There was a flurry of activity when children went running down to the basement to see what they could find to throw on to go outside.  I have a not-so-funny feeling that I am going to be needing to find some boots and pants.

A. and I are planning to pull everything up today after our history co-op and get it sorted out.  I'm still holding out a little hope that yesterday's search was not very thorough and we will have all the supplies we need.

This is not one of my most favorite jobs.  It is one of the few times of the year when I wished we lived in the desert where I grew up.
