Day 22 - Snow Days


January 27, 2015
Day 22


Snow. It came and it did not. The forecast was calling for a lot of snow. Today was going to be a snow day, we knew it on Sunday night, or at least we thought we did. Instead, there was school. Remember,  I am not looking for snow days, I anticipate every Wider School day. Oh, I talk too soon, I really do.  Though, today, I really did enjoy myself with the Wider Students.

I anticipated a storm but the storm went out to sea. I was disappointed. But not really.  My impression of snow days is totally false, really out of line. I always see it as a day where I can relax.  However, that is not the case and has not been the case since my children have been walkers. The kids want to play games and they want to do this with me.  They come in from the snow and drip, all over. They want food and I am the resident cook. I begin to read a book and someone is asking me for something. The plans for the snow day went out to sea just like the storm.

Note to self: Work on those expectations. Enjoy the fact that your children want YOU.
