Do you know how often we have "snow days" in Utah? NEVER! I can remember as a child living in Virginia and hoping for a snow day each and every time there was even a skiff of snow. We'd wake up and huddle around the kitchen radio and listen as the announcer would list the districts that were cancelled. It was so exciting when we'd hear ours called. Yeah, that doesn' happen here. We just bundle up real well, dig ourselves out of our driveways and continue on with life!
The kids were beyond excited today when they leaned that school had been cancelled. Luckily, one my friends called and shared the news because I was preparing to send my kids out the door (since I'd just told them that we don't do snow days in Utah). So, the kids are out the door romping in piles of the good stuff and I'm cleaning up the mess they made while roasting marshmallows over candles (don't ask). And I'm left pondering if my parents secretly shuttered when they heard the news of closed schools. Here all these years I thought we were ALL celebrating together, but now I'm left a wondering. So here's to a jump start on Christmas Break - Happy Holidays, everybody!
