It’s the first official snow day of our school year… we’ve had lots of snow, just never on a school day. As I woke up, saw the cancellation announcement and went back to bed, I couldn’t help but wonder how excited my sprouts are to have the day off to play in the snow… or how their parents are feeling about it. As I woke up again a little after eight, I’m thinking those parents didn’t have that luxury. Thankfully my dog loves to sleep in as much as I do.

Here’s hoping there are lots of sleds, cups of hot cocoa, and board games by the fire. A little more books being read and a little less television and video games. Tomorrow will come soon enough… for today, enjoy the time off and let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
