"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas..."

We finally got a "real" snow - about 5 inches.

The kids were very eager to get outside and were arguing over who was going to get the privilege of helping shovel the driveway. The girl got out there first so she began shoveling and doing a pretty good job of it.

My dh remarked that he could just loiter inside awhile longer and the driveway would be clear :)

"Is it a snow day?" the boy asked at breakfast. A "snow day" meaning "no school". I guess he thinks public/private school kids get "snow days" so they can stay home and play in the snow. He was hoping all the snow meant a no school day for homeschoolers too. That's one of the advantages of homeschooling...we can still do school when it's too nasty to go outside but we can also choose to make it a "snow day"...or a "sun day" or a "rain day" or "it's just too beautiful to be stuck inside today day".

I figure we'll still sneak in some educatin' today.
