I took a little Snow Day vacation yesterday with the kids because they didn’t have school. Again. It’s getting to the point that the TV stations are starting to only announce which schools ARE in session instead of the other way around.
I knew it was going to be a rough day off because school wasn’t cancelled because of snow, but because of cold. It was so cold out, the snow wouldn’t fall and the clouds froze off. It looked lovely out there. It was bright and sunny. But, it was also -20*F with some ridiculous wind chill that would make a tauntaun nervous.
We made bread, watched movies, redesigned the layout of the dining room, and ran around inside the house screaming like lunatics. The highlight of the day, however, was when I took out our old laptop and set it up for the kids to visit kid-safe websites and videos. The twins didn’t want to go to bed because it was so thrilling. Aili, on the other hand, has a completely different reaction when things are too exciting. She got herself all wound up, and then fell asleep on my lap because she used up every ounce of energy getting excited about the My Little Pony website.
Well. Okay, then.
Thank goodness the temperature outside has risen to a balmy 0*F so there will be school today. Yay!
