My kids enjoy school, but nothing compares to the joy of a snow day! I love them just as much as the kids do. I love waking them up at the normal time but instead of rushing them out of bed, I say, "Guess what, you have a snow day! Go back to sleep." The blizzard which has blanketed the Midwest for the past 5 days has brought some good. Now, it's not all fun and games at our house on a snow day. As I write my girls are practicing their algebra while listening to a Mozart concerto. Ryan is reading a picture book that teaches Chinese characters. Later today I am planning to teach them how to bake bread, and if the temperature rises above 2 degrees we'll go out to build a snowman.
