Yes!! More Snow!!

I was just thinking… We haven’t had any snow in such a long time. I mean it’s been at least a few days or so, and it’s starting to look so… summer-like here.  Finally, it started snowing last night and is supposed to continue on into Tuesday morning.

When we got up we checked to see if school was late or anything. Although everyone around us was either late or cancelled, we were on time. We are the Mighty Dragons after all. We can just shoot flames out our mouths and melt a path to school. And because school was on time, I was very saddened. I really wanted to have my hyper excited kids home with me for 2 more hours for some extra special bonding time. I even had to excuse myself for a moment to go weep for my loss. I did pull it together and mustered all I had to pretend to be cheerful with my good-byes as they departed.

10:20 – Grandma says, “I bet they get out early today.”   So, I looked up the school closings on-line and discovered, with extreme joy, that the district was closing at 10:30. I had to shoo Grandma to quickly go pick the kids up. Bonus!! When they got home they asked if they could have a couple friends over. The more the merrier, that’s what I always say. At least there is a little snow for them to play in. (because our deprived kids have nothing to play with in the house. poor kids!)
