The Smart Cookies were SNOWED IN today (in preparation of Sunday/Monday, I hope.)
I think that I've learned that you either roll with it or you'll spend all day fighting it.
So, we were SNOWED IN. We had the goods, I brought in all my gloves, scarves, and hats for them to wear. I opened the windows to add a touch of climate. I brought some sleds in. Dad's daycare kids made paper snowballs. And, then we had a shovel to dig in and out.
The school rule was that you had to shovel everywhere you went. And, there we went. To the bathroom and to visit 2 friends' SNOWED IN classes. Shoveling as we went. There was a hockey stick at the front and the back, so that we had guides in the big blizzard.
The kids had knackel's, chips/dip, juice, pizza, and popcorn. Woowee. I think they were stuffed.
And, yes, we got a lot of work done.
But, I don't think you can beat watching little kiddos cuddle up and work hard in pajamas. We even had a lawyer come in and talk to our class about government.
I wanted to honor their hard work from last week after they raised all that money (over $4,500!) for Relay For Life.
Moral of the Story: When I woke up this morning, I thought 'go for it.' Today, may be the only day these kids remember in 30 years from 3rd grade. Make it a memory.
