(T would like everyone to know that on snow days one must always wear shorts and carry a sword.)

ARTS (um, we watched A LOT of tv and movies in March, but, in my defense, cold and snow dominated the month, so we had to do something.)
* Josh Ritter and Gregory Alan Isakov at the Lincoln Theater
* Watching Blackfish for family movie night and the kids begging to picket Seaworld
* Watching The Fantastic Mr. Fox for family movie night
* Watching The Muppets Most Wanted in the theaters
* Watching Cosmos with the kids and Dan's excitement when F asked "can we please watch another one?"
* Watching The Americans, Season 1 (possibly the best show on TV, it's FANTASTIC)
* New music - Streets of Laredo Volumes I and II, Public Service Broadcasting's Inform-Educate-Entertain, Crystal Fighter's Cave Rave (thanks for the recommendation, Catherine!), The 1975's self-titled album

* Sledding and afternoon beer drinking/watching the Irish Dancers at P Brennans on St. Patty's Day (otherwise known as the 9th school closure of the year)
* A warm Saturday at the Adventure Park in Sandy Springs with P (she's old enough for the greens now!!), followed by ribs on the grill at Shannon's house

* Snow day sledding and playdates
* Scooters outside (on the few days when it didn't snow/rain)
* When the kids compliment each other (P to T - "you're so funny, in a good way."/ T to P - "and P you look nice in that sweatshirt.")
* Dance like an elephant
* T always asking "mom, are we taking the high road yet?" (he means the highway)
