Yesterday, was going to be a super busy day with several appointments and early release for the kids as well as evening obligations that would keep me from running. In order to make myself get my run in, I vowed, no matter how tired I was, or what the weather was doing, I would get up at 5am to go running. So, when my alarm clock went off I sprung (ha ha, more like rolled kind of whale like) out of bed. Much to my surprise, when I looked out the window I was met with this:
I wasn't surprised when I got back that the kids' school had been closed for the day. Dan's judge's kids also had no school so called in to work and urged Dan to do the same. Hooray, snow day for everyone! It worked out very well because I still had a few morning appointments to attend and I was able to do so without all 4 kids.
When Jonny and I headed out for our first adventure, the 3 older kids were well on their way to making a very nice sized snow man and enjoying every second of it.
Today, we're having another snow day (I'm really not sure why) but since it rained all yesterday afternoon and night there isn't any good snow to play in, just a mushy, slushy mess. Also, our basement is flooding and Dan couldn't call in again today so some of the novelty of having a snow day has worn off a bit. Life at home will be back to business as usual, just with all 4 kids home all day to enjoy in the fun of the daily duties... ha ha.
