I sent the kids off to school.
they walk you know.
As I was getting the other kids ready to go to their schools (the middle schooler goes after the elementary school kids and the pre school kids go after the middle schooler)
the elementary school kids came back home.
Because school had been closed
due to bad weather.
So i sent my children
to walk to school
in weather that was so bad
that school was closed.
Great parenting in action...
We watched Horton Hears a Who
and I spent a lot of time on the computer while the kids played with toys upstairs
We had "get smart time" which was time devoted to making ourselves smarter for a while (as in doing book reports, extra credit and math facts for a while)
Then we cleaned house
and went to the bookstore where a few of my children blew their allowance
home for dinner, baths 30 minutes of tv (tv DOES NOT HAPPEN on school nights in this house, this is a BIG DEAL!)
mom time before bed
now I am back at the computer, but finishing now so I can go to bed
maybe tomorrow I'll drive the kids
that way if they cancel school again, at least I'll have the comfort of knowing that I hadn't sent them out in the cancellation-worthy weather.
An unexpected day
how was yours?
