Samuel wins Pretty, Pretty Princess
It rained this morning, and they called off school! I actually wanted to go to school today. I have had my class scheduled for the library for weeks now (and I can't reschedule any time soon). Our wonderful librarian was teaching a lesson to all of my classes which meant I would have time to grade, plan, etc. I know that the anticipation of bad weather was what prompted the cancellation. Now, I'm waiting for them to cancel for tomorrow - which I do want them to do! It's always frustrating when the streets are covered with snow, but we get ready for bed not knowing whether or not we'll have to get out and go in the morning. I'm really hoping that we'll find out tonight so that I don't have to set my alarm. (Of course, it doesn't help that John already knows his school is out.)
The kids played outside some today even though there wasn't any snow to play in. I suggested that they get out CandyLand and teach Hannah how to play. She loved it! Both boys seemed irritated that she cheated. (I don't really think she knew she was cheating; she just doesn't understand the rules.) It's amazing how competitive a game of CandyLand can become. Overall it was a great day to lay around and not have to do a whole lot.
