Snow Day Number Four

Four snow days this season. We have two built into our calendar, so we have now added two days to the end of the year. Now, I am not panicking yet. We were out pretty early this year anyway (like May 24th-ish.) So I am not completely hating these snow days. But more than one or two more will be a problem. And isn't everything about me? Shouldn't the weather do what I tell it to?


To be honest, I don't even really remember the first two snow days. They were early in December. And it was really cold, so I don't think we got out and did much.


Yesterday, the Little Man actually had to go to school while the Little Miss and I stayed home. As we were coming home from dropping him off, we tried to turn but the car had other plans. So we went straight. Heh. We finally got home and guess what? They dismissed his school early. *sigh* Luckily, the second trip into town to pick him up was much easier. The roads were a bit more clear and we were able to go in the direction we intended.


Once we got him home, we suited up to brave the elements. I tied a sled to the back of the Gator and off we went! The kids had a blast!




To top the day off, I got a package from the BFF! Woot!


Martini shaker, chocolate, Starbucks...does this girl know me or what?! Thanks, Deb! I miss you !

Did you hear that she moved down South? And is on her third snow day THIS WEEK?! One of the things she was looking forward to living down there was the warmer weather and mild winters. Ha! Biggest snowstorm in 20+ years! I think it's a sign that she is to come back home!

As I sit here sipping my second cup of coffee with the weather channel in the background, it sounds like the majority of the country is snow covered! What about your neck of the woods? Do you have snow on the ground? Are your kids home from school driving you crazy yet?

Pin It!

Not today they aren't! They were home Mon and Tues driving their dad crazy because since we own our own real estate office they got to go to work with him. We gladly sent them to school this morning - an hour late.

Home again. Sigh. I miss Target. Noah asked me today if we could go somewhere. I'm hoping they'll go to school tomorrow and I can go birthday shopping for the boy, then go out for dinner. But that might be wishful thinking. Glad you liked your birthday box! :)

I want snow toooo!
I love, really love LM's pink hat and why would they make the Little Man go to school in the snow?

Becky said...

We got 3" of snow Monday then ice. Today is Snow Day #3 for the boys. Hopefully they'll go to school tomorrow.

Gotta love Florida. I heard on the news yesterday or the day before that we were the only state that did not have snow on the ground. No snow days yet.....

Amy said...

No snow in Louisiana! :( IT is pretty but not sure I could handle all that. These temps in the 20's are KILLING ME!!! :)

We have TONS of snow in the Chicagoland area...but I honestly think they wait for a fatality before they call a snow day here! It has been CRAZY driving :P

Shannon said...

I'm in southeast TN... 8" of snow on the ground.

EIGHT. INCHES.

And now, it's all iced over. I've been stuck inside my house since Sunday... and I won't be going anywhere any time soon.

School has been canceled for the rest of the week. And Monday is a holiday... meaning they won't go back UNTIL TUESDAY.

Fun gift! I heart candy!

Lauren said...

I live in the only state not to get any snow! I am starting to get jealous!

Diana said...

That looks like so much fun! Especially the part involving the gator and sleds...

Rebecca said...

That is my kind of sledding!
We have had so much snow in MA it is crazy. I am so tired of it!
