Snow Day

10 minutes-The amount of time I spent trying to coax children out of bed this morning.

30 seconds-The amount of time it took to get the children to get out of bed as soon as I said, "snow!"

5 minutes-The time it took the children to prepare and eat breakfast so they could go out!

15 minutes-The time it took to find snow worthy clothing to wear out.

1 minute-The time it took to begin making snow angels!

10 minutes-The amount it time it took to decide to start trying to slide down the hill on a garbage can lid.
5 seconds-The amount of time it took to figure out that wasn't going to happen!
15 minutes-The amount of time it took Tigercub to figure out he didn't like his first snow!

10 minutes-The amount of time it took to get him to stop screaming after coming inside!

30 minutes-of sheer joy as the big kids played in the snow to their hearts' content!

5 minutes-to peel off cold, wet clothes and start drinking hot chocolate!

Forever-The memories of a hard to come by day in the snow in TN!

Awwww...snow days are the best! As a previous teacher...I admire them so much and those that get that wonderful surprise on a winter morning of not having to go to school. We have had 4 so far this year...more than I remember as a teacher! Go figure!!!! Looks like you were a memory maker and not a memory taker, even though it takes soooooo long to bundle everyone up to enjoy the snow!!! FUN!

OK - that picture of the baby crying with his hat on the ground is at once hilarious and tender. Poor guy!

We have over 6 inches, but I made the kids stay inside because it was freezing rain all day. Torture for them. And me (a little bit) :)

Snow days are such joyful times...I loved them as a child, teacher, and mom...and still do! Decatur, AL doesn't get much snow, but I sure miss it!
