SNOWDAY

Oh how I love snowdays...I know I have said it before but there is something about that word.."snowday, snowday, snowday." Maybe it's the teacher in me, I just get a rush when I begin seeing all the schools scroll across the bottom of the screen. I always look for the school where I taught my very first year of teaching....I made some great friends and most still teach there. When I see the name oh how I do a little happy dance and sometimes still jump around like a crazy person smile for them. Now I have a niece who is in school and I do the same for her. Her school starts with an "A" though so thank the Lord for DVR. HA!
I don't really know why I enjoy snowdays so much. I think it's because of my mom. She always mae them so special. We could pretty much do whatever...ha! She let us go inside and outside as many times as we wanted. She never once complained about all the wet clothes and what we did to the floors in the house. Back then I didn't care or even know what a snowday does to a house. :) We always got to sleep in and have hot chocolate...it was so fun to play outside with my brother and sister. We always had a blast! I want to list a few of my favorite memories from snowdays, because this is my blog and I can, I know my sister and mom read and I think this would be fun....
1. The time we (my brother, sister, and I) had this brillant idea of hooking a sled to the 4-wheeler and pulling each other all around. One driving, one riding backwards to watch/spot, and the other riding on the sled. Some how that all makes sense...why was "someone" that was driving turned around to spot I will never know...thank goodness you didn't hit the tree TOO hard.
2. Remember the snowday where the St.Bernard dog showed up and we wanted to keep him SO bad?
3. The one little hill we had at the old house....oh how many times did we sled down!?!? probably at least a million!?!?! :)
4. snowball fights with the neighbor boys...alll fun and games until they started putting rocks in their snowballs.
5. Then there are snowdays are the Chapmans house....wow wow wow....how about the time you, Sister, literally BIT A HOLE THROUGH YOUR LIP! Oh Ms. Robyn...how calm you were.
The list could go on and on...memories....I love them! I can't wait to have snowdays with Wyatt and my other 3 children,if I get my way. I told him today I promise I will play in the snow with him when he gets older...maybe when he gets older he will also be able to respond to me when I talk too! Ha! I hope everyone had/has an amazing snowday!
