Snow Day!


We've been waiting for this day for over 2 years (when we moved back to NC)! This morning we awoke to falling snow and it did not stop until about 2:00 p.m.! We got about 6 inches so plenty to enjoy. There are a couple of lots yet to be built upon so all the kids converged upon the hills in the back of the lot and wore it out with sleds. By late afternoon there was no more snow there and the kids looked like they had taken mud baths. I got mine out just prior to looking mud caked. We then made hot chocolate and s'mores. Sugar overload.

At lunchtime we forced the minis to watch some of the inauguration even though one half of this household voted for the other fellow. I believe it's still important for kids to realize the importance of this day for our country.

I hope everyone had a great day. I'm off to wash snow clothes. Oh, and I just learned, their make up snow day is this Saturday! Oh my! Not fair!

How fun! They look so happy out there. Sounds like such a great day. I can't believe they're having to make up on a Saturday! That just sucks the fun out of a snow day! We'd probably skip. ha.

Yes, year round schools didn't allow for snow make up days is what I heard so they make them up on Saturdays! Traditional schools have typical make up days during the week. I've already heard parents saying they plan to take them out after half day because of basketball and other activities. BUT, they have been out for 5 days in a row already...so Saturday won't kill them!

What a fun day!! We love it here at first but come January - we are ready for SUN!! They look like they had a great time though! (And I force my kids to watch it too - they are young but I wanted then to know they at least saw it!)
