It was rather amusing to see my kids’ reactions to the snow this week. On Sunday, when we were sent home early from church so that we wouldn’t get stuck away from home when the storm was at it’s worse, the kids were almost indifferent. When we realized that school would be cancelled for Monday because of the freezing rain and sleet, there were audible groans.
Everyone made the most of Monday’s day off school, though, surprisingly, no one seemed all that excited about it. AJ even got all bundled up to go outside and came back in a while later declaring, “Freezing rain makes the snow not fun. It’s all crunchy now. Not soft and smooshy.”
But when school was cancelled on Tuesday as well because of a new snow storm, no one was happy about it (and that included Mom and Dad).
I guess we were meant to live in a warmer climate.
I know one boy – a certain teenager who is now taller than his mother – who would wear shorts every day of the year (here he is shoveling snow on Monday):
Were you hit by one of the storms that seemed to cover the entire country last week? How do your kids react to a snow day?
