Another Snow Day

I think this may be the first post that I actually really complain. I’m tired of snow days! Not because my son is at home with me but because its now taking away from fun family time.

We are allotted so many snow days a school year. After we exceed those days, spring break days are used or days are added to end of year. When I was a kid I loved them. But I never really had a “spring break” we just stayed at home and played in neighborhood. And end of year add ons I did really notice cause I was still with my friends. But now having a son I realize what I may have been missing out on.

We don’t have a bid trip planned for spring break. As of now its a short trip to my family’s home in Texas, which to us is a break from cold. But I don’t want to have to pull him out of school to do this. Especially when the days were allotted. Now at this point you may be saying but it snowed. No it started snowing at 11am and didn’t stick and get bad until 4-5pm. If there was an early dismissal today (which we have for bad weather) kids would have been off busses. This is the second time we’ve canceled when a dismissal would have worked. Roads aren’t great at this moment and it is snowing again but my husbands truck which has been parked for 4 hrs now doesn’t even have a dusting. And we are yet again canceled tomorrow. I hate that they are using these days when we could be in school and kids could possibly have scheduled time with their families with out penalty of missing class. Within 45min. I got a 2hr delay call and a closing call. It had not been snowing for an hour at this point.

My son’s school is having a Valentine Box contest. For those of you that don’t do this, it’s a box decorated for class valentines.

I wrapped it but he thought long and hard about which stickers and where to place them. They were due today. There is a contest and now every kid that worked so hard will have less time to admire each others work. If it had been horrible out I wouldn’t mind but I feel these are just wasted days.

I think if this as a place to share my free time work, my hobby, my joy of crafting and food and fun. I’m sorry for complaining but it’s been irritating me all day. Hope that everyone has had a good weekend. Hope if you followed football you were happy with Sundays results. :(. And that the rest of the week is completely wonderful.
