Grandma Platt went home a week to-day. I did not go to school but mamma and I are studing at home and keeping up with the school. It did not snow but it is cloudy and feels like snow. It is still very cold. Planks were here to-day to see the tree. I went skating on the dam the ice being very good. It is not so cold to-day and it was very nice skating.
