School Cancelled Due To Inclement Weather

Niamh and Finn have been out of school all week!
Monday was MLK Day, and school has been cancelled the rest of the week because of crappy weather and icy road conditions.
LUCKY DUCKS. As a kid, what I wouldn't have given to have had school cancelled unexpectedly. It must be like receiving a surprise call from staffing at 5:30am to offer me a No Pay. 
I remember in the Winter of 5th grade the heat at Immaculate Heart Of Mary School broke and instead of cancelling school, we were allowed to break dress code and wear sweats under our tartan uniform skirts. I thought that was a treat.

Today, we took advantage of the snow accumulation and went sledding at Gas Works Park with Katie and Simone.  It was the most fun I've had sober all Winter.

On the way home, we had to stop for some supplies because no perfect school free snow day ends without a direct in the mouth squirt of reddi whip and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows.

And that, Children, is how you take advantage of a snow day.

Little early for your kids to be doing 'whip-its'. Looks like a grand time at Gasworks. I am sure you could have hidden a flask under your snow clothes. You need to try a little harder to not be so sober.
