I remember a time when it took something colossal to cancel school for an entire day.
This morning school was cancelled on account of a snow storm. The problem is that we don't have a snow storm. It is raining. And there is not any snow predicted until later this evening, if at all. I'm mystified. This is Wisconsin, people! We can handle the possibility of snow!
Normally I would love to have a free day from school to hang out with my kids, but snow days are much less fun when there is no snow. Not only that but the kids had exciting stuff going on at school today.
Ben's class was getting a special treat for behaving so well and were celebrating with a pajama day and popcorn. Tommy's class was doing their gift exchange and Christmas party. And Grace, along with her classmates, was going to give her very first Christmas performance for the parents and then we were making gingerbread houses together. She has been walking around the house singing, "Jingle bells all the way, HEY! Jingle bells all the way, HEY!" for the last few weeks. And she even had a fancy dress picked out. Such a bummer.
The boys have a half day tomorrow but it is already jam packed with a nativity play (that Tommy is the narrator for), more Christmas parties, a talent show (that both Joey and Ben are in with their classmates), and a special luncheon with all the families. I hope that school isn't cancelled again tomorrow when we actually might have a bit of snow.
