Our First Snow Day

It's hard to believe, but today was my son's first ever snow day.  We live in North Dakota, so we get lots of snow, but our school just doesn't cancel very often.  Several area schools cancelled today, and several have also already called for a late reporting for tomorrow.  Our school hasn't announced a late reporting for tomorrow, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do later.  Our school district covers A LOT of miles, and that includes a lot of rural county roads that aren't plowed or anything.

My son was certainly excited about having a snow day.  When we talked about the possibility yesterday, we decided we would spend time playing out in the snow, as well as inside watching movies and playing games.  I woke up with my eyelid swollen so much that I didn't feel like doing any of that stuff, though.  My husband ended up having a snow day from work as well, so he played video games with Elliott for a while and I took some medicine and went to bed.  Elliott did end up playing outside for just a few minutes, but spent most of the time inside watching TV or playing games.

Our school calendar includes 2 built in snow days, so Elliott was excited to know that he got today off and won't have to make it up in May. lol  This is also the week for their spring break (which is just Thursday and Friday off), so at the most they will have a 2 day school week this week.

Yay for snow days! We lounge around in our jammies and watch movies on snow days. We've only had 1 so far this year. I am starting to wonder if they will cancel tomorrow since we are currently getting dumped on!
