SNOW DAY!!

Look what we woke up to!!!

Well I'm a homeschooler so it's not like a snow day should affect us in any real way, but it does. With all the beautiful glistening white play area beckoning just outside the windows, it's almost impossible to get any school work done...and why should we?! The kids suited up and went out!

In my defense:) the snow won't last that long here on the west coast so you have to enjoy it while you can. Hopefully it will stay for a couple of days but there are not guarantees!

Even the dog got into the action...

She loved it! Crazy mutt! Jumping and sniffing and eating the strange white stuff.

They were red, cold and very very happy.

Yummy warm soup on a cold snowy day!

The neighbor kids got to stay home too which is an extra treat so back into their gear and back outside them went!

I've had a couple of uninterrupted hours to vacuum and clean (and blog, but I finished my work first!). We have good friends coming tomorrow, with their 8 kids,to stay for a couple of days so this time to clean and organized was very appreciated!

There is nothing like old friends and I can't wait to share and laugh and pray together. (if we have a moment of quiet which is doubtful with 12 kids running around). We haven't spent any time together for over year and I miss them!

*gasp*

I don't know what's more beautiful: the white powder outside or the four happy faces inside.

12 kids! You are very brave.

Also, I love dogs with powder on their noses. Cute!

HOw do you get a few uninterrupted hours to vacuum and clean? I don't have kids and can't find that.

Please...share...please.

You DID get my snow day!! That's because you are just enough north of us. Spokane has also been getting dumped on. Nothing left over for all of us getting drenched here in the Puget Sound area.

What fun! You actually make homeschooling look doable and fun (two things I never imagined it could be- for me, that is).

Amy said...

Becky said...

Snow days are my favorite. I love them dearly (altho, by Feb and March I'm done).

Enjoy it!

I've had about as much of snow and winter as I can take, but I'm happy you got some at just the right time! Hope you have a wonderful time with your friends and the 12 kids. Maybe if the snow lasts, you'll get in that quiet time you're looking forward too!

Awesome pictures! Hope you all enjoyed.

Have a great visit with your friends. Lots of kids by the sounds of it...I'm sure it'll be crazy but fun!

Where do you live, Shay? I wrote a post about our first snow here in Indiana and how we had a game-playing, book-reading, playing in the snow sort of day. Dec. 5th. Something I love about homeschooling. I LOVE your yard and your family is so cute!

Speaking of snow, we're supposed to get 6-10 inches by this time tomorrow here in Indiana.
