We have been hearing of possible snow ALL week! In Alabama, this is kinda big deal. For a teacher, school letting out early is a real BIG DEAL!;)
Sure enough, it started snowing around 11:00 today. Our wonderful principal came over the intercom and told us we could take our students out to play in the snow for a few minutes. After hearing screams of excitement, the third grade headed out to play!
You can imagine the craziness... AND the wet rear-ends, grassy backs, soaked tennis shoes, slippery hallways, grassy/muddy classrooms ....;)
We got a call that we were being dismissed at 2:00. WELL, the snow got harder, lasted longer, and accumulated on the roads which was not expected. We ended up staying until about 3:45 because parents were stuck, buses could not run, and roads started closing. Dismissal was quite interesting. Needless to say, it was an exciting, eventful day.
If you ask me, it was kind of nice for a change!:)
Thankfully, I made is home safely to spend some time with my little man during his first snow!
Actually, I made it to the top of my driveway. I was sliding a bit and scared I was going to slide into my mom's car!
Our First Snow in Our Home... (I think)
Most importantly, it was our monkey's first snow!!
(I know, I know! You are wanting to add this idea to your Pinterest boards! Mommy tried to get crafty.... it didn't quite turn out as planned;)
This was the best we could get. He was not so sure about the snow.
A little fit was in our near future in this photo!
Look at those eyes though!
Thank you Lord for special memories...
