I {heart} snow days?

project life freebies

It was a snow day yesterday. The first snow day of the school year. I was all excited until 10 a.m. when the fighting started. Fighting. Over. Markers. {sigh.}

And, the forecast had everyone scared we were going to get 14″ of snow that the school districts cancelled school before even one snowflake hit the ground. Um, yeah, we got about 6.5″. That is a waste of a good snow day.

Did you see Scary Mommy on the Today Show this morning? I’ve been reading her blog for a few years. She is hilarious!

snow day

Mountain-Waterfall

Today is a snow day.
11 inches and counting.
The girls think it is fun.
Me, not so much.
I am quickly going out of my mind.
7 year old attitude started at 6:45 am.
That’s A.M. people!
It’s only noon.
Lord help me, give me calm.

firsts

First attempt at ice skating for Parker.
She didn’t like it much.
She said, “It’s slippery.”
I held her up the 1 time around the rink.
Then she was finished.
“It’s cold.”

But she sure looks cute in her skates!
Maybe next year.

First small jumps.

Basic 6.
Summer vacation off the ice equals a little rusty on the ice.
