For once, I did NOT want a snow day. Today was supposed to be Group Picture Day for the yearbook. Months ago I had booked the school auditorium and a photographer so we could get group pictures of most campus organizations today. I woke up earlier than usual to get to school, thinking I was prepared but wanting to be sure. The schedule was made, my helper students were excused, my sub plans were ready, I was ready. But before I could even get to the shower, Brett said, "I think I heard sleet."
Oh, no. Not today.
I looked out the front door, checked the news, got the word, and yes, I grumbled about the terrible timing. But then I got to wake up Ryan and Katie, raise their blinds and watch both of them react to the snow. Wheeeee!!!!!!!!!
A little bit later, Katie saw the huge flakes falling and compared the flurry to what she's seen in movies. I was SO thankful to be home!
Time to take a deep breath, slow down, grab a book and enjoy.
Of course, the kitties enjoyed getting to come inside for a bit, too. KitKat outstayed her welcome when she helped herself to Ryan's breakfast!
