First day of school
September 6, 1981
My mom’s birthday. My twin girls, Donna and Dawn, are scheduled for their first day at school. Mom is heavily pregnant. Her waters broke later that day and she gave birth on the 7th. No way were these girls missing day one: Mom needed a break!
There is snow on the ground and the twins are up to their 4 year old hips in it. Great to play in, but no way can they walk the mile to school through it. Enter Carl, who at that time was a little bit buff.
One on each shoulder, we three travelers slogged through the snow, laughing and singing all the way there. And back. That was the first time I heard the phrase ‘snow day’. Bugger.
