A week-and-a-half after winter break ended we got hit with a big snow storm. Of course it came at the beginning of the week. The kids had two snow days followed by a day back at school. We chose to keep Avery home from middle school after I called to ask about road conditions in Fall City and decided it wasn’t worth the risk to send him. Poor Kieron and Silas were fit to be tied and didn’t understand why they still had to go to school down the street. It turned out about half the other middle and high school parents decided the same thing, many of whom called the school district complaining about the decision to keep school open (poor district can’t win). Anyway, they got the message and school was closed Thursday and Friday.
We had a lot of fun sledding, building forts and igloos, and eating snow ice cream. I have to say, this was the best snow break yet, largely in part because our youngest is 3 1/2 and I’m not pregnant, which means we can ALL actually get out and play!
