When I went to bed last night, I kind of figured that the kids would not have school today, and sure enough after a night of fitful sleep (due to the sound of sleet hitting the windows), I woke up at 5:00am to find that M didn't have school today. I turned off my alarms and snuggled back in to bed and sure enough...not even 10 minutes later, M was in our room. He was up and ready to go. So much for sleeping in on a snow day.
After living in Ohio and Kentucky for a while, I'm not all that amazed by snow. The kids, however, were harping on me incessantly all morning to go out and play in the snow. I'm not sure what they thought it was going to be, but I tried to explain to them the difference between full-on snow and the weird sleet-ice-trace-amount-of-snow combination that we had going on. In any case, I made them eat lunch first and then we went outside to explore the winter wonderland.
