Snowmageddon 2013

Another Snow Day?

I miss last winter. I liked not having snow days so we could have more summer days. That is just me.

Today school was cancelled for the third time this year. This time, there was not even snow on the ground or in the sky or in the area when school was cancelled. Crazy! People are sure afraid of law suits or something. What happened to early dismissals or cancelling school when it really snows?

Anyway, the kids were, of course, thrilled.

The kids got ready for the day with much excitement. Addison and Asher were invited to play dates, so Alivia and I drove to Council Bluffs on the dry roads to visit the Great Grandparents briefly and deliver some home made banana bread that Asher and I had made yesterday afternoon. It is always difficult to see those you love in pain, and this visit was hard on Alivia and I both. Alivia was sad to see her Great Grandma sad, but she knew that Grandma loved seeing Alivia and appreciated her visit and the cards they had made for her. As we left Council Bluffs around 11:00, the snow was just starting. Some was kinda sticking to the grass by the time we got home (there so could have been a half day of school!).

With Addison and Asher home from their play date, Chris put in a movie for us to enjoy. The kids have been outside twice to play in the little fluff of snow (still not much out there), drank their fair share of cocoa, before we settle down for some home made pizza for dinner. I do not enjoy winter AT ALL, but I do not mind an afternoon of feeling like I do not have to go anywhere.

Let's just hope this is the last of the snow days as spring has to be coming here soon, right?

WOW! 3 snow days?? This was the first one in over two years for us. I spent the morning at work and the afternoon running around. So glad to be home. Your afternoon sounds perfect. WE are doing that Saturday. I HATE winter too!

The Austin Life said... have you guys got out of snow days? We had one the last day of school before winter break, we had one last month for maybe 3 inches of snow, and now these 2 the last 2 days. Last year we did not have any, and we loved it! Enjoy your quiet Saturday Courtney!
