Snow Day!

SmugMug Daily Link

The kids were out of school by 11:45AM which was an hour earlier than they had announced the night before.  By the time I got ot the school at 11:15AM to wait in line it was sleeting heavily.  Our5 mile ride home was not without excitement as we passed 5 cars off in a ditch.  No injuries but definitely were going to need tow trucks.  We passed an ambulance and fire truck on the way to the scene.  Lucky for them as they were one of the first accidents of the storm and they didn't have to wait too long.

The kids busied themselves playing Club Penguin at the kitchen table for several hours.  Sleet and rain aren't the best for sledding and snowballs and such.  Late afternoon they noticed that the ground was covered in 'snow'.  Actually it was sleet and ice but still they found lots of delight going out in it.

I took a few pictures and enjoyed hearing their laughter but there were lots of clothing malfunctions and changes and they kept me hopping keeping up with them.

I wish we'd had 6 inches of snow but I am glad the kids got out in it and got to slide around a little bit.  The laughter of a happy child is intoxicating.

The boys are off for the weekend with their father.  Donnis on his way home from visiting family in Florida.  I can't wait to see him!
