Ode to a Snow Day

This time of the year is wonderful because we are celebrating the birth of our Lord and it's a great time for families to get together. However, this time of the year also is wonderful because it means that there is a chance of the coolest thing ever. A SNOW DAY!!!!!!!

I realize that as a teacher, I am not really supposed to have this love of the SNOW DAY. Perhaps it is because the already crazy students will be even wilder when they come back, since they are shaken from their routine. Maybe it's because we will have to 'make-up' this day in May or June. Or it could be because I'm supposed to be an adult and not love things like a SNOW DAY.

Well.

I totally am excited because we have a SNOW DAY on December 16th!!!!!!!! I know that we get out for Christmas break this Friday at 1:00 p.m, but I really wanted a break for just one day. I'm going to sleep in and then lay around in my bed for a while. Then, I'm going to get up and organize things, wrap Christmas presents, and just relax. Also, they called school off at 6:00 p.m. tonight, so I don't have to stay up, watching for my school's name scrolling across the bottom of the t.v. screen, just for that tiny flare of joy at realizing that I don't have to go into school tomorrow.

A SNOW DAY. Utter and complete bliss.

Charlie and I had a snow day too (I guess that you could call it an ice day). We stayed in our PJ's till 11:00! It was great. Hopefully we will have more to come!
