Were you reading the synopsis of our first snow day and thinking: Where’s the hot chocolate? What did they do outside with all that snow? I want to see MORE pictures of that white stuff! Her snow days aren’t very organized!
I was thinking a few of those same things on Wednesday except the part of wanting to see more of the white stuff! First, I did offer the boys hot chocolate on more than one occasion and they declined. I guess hot chocolate is more of a December snow kind of drink around here. We did go outside twice yesterday and here is what we did with some of that snow the first time we went out there:
Here is a behind the scenes look at the bathroom after playing in the snow. Realize this happens EVERY time we must don snow-suits (actually, I wore heavy winter pajamas out as I don’t own any snow-pants), boots, coats, and gloves…
I did catch a glimpse of some birds in the snow and for once, managed to grab my camera before they all flew away. Here are a few “pretty” pictures of all that snow:
After a lunch of frozen pizza and a dessert of snow ice cream which none of us really liked and so we ate chocolate bars and marshmallows instead (I think I’m the only one who prepared a proper s’more), we went back to our screens for a couple of hours before returning outside to finish “our” igloo. The boys went sledding down our slight hill in front while I worked diligently on “our” construction project.
Last night snowplows came instead of phone calls so everyone is back to school and work today so no worries about trying to organize more snow days. Actually, you may have noticed my snow days are not very organized. I can’t say I don’t try to organize them. I did print math worksheets off the computer that were given a brief glance. I didn’t worry about it since I figured there was a math lesson somewhere in my igloo building project. I do try to prepare for snow days like I talked about in this post but I also try not to lose sight of the fact that snow days are a break from the routine and just meant to be enjoyed.
The main thing I remember on snow days is this: I miss summer!
Do you live in an area of snow days and do you like them? How do you approach them?
