Snow Day!

This morning I got to wake my six-year-old with those three magical words: “School is cancelled!”

Since my husband is a high school teacher, the whole family got a three day weekend!

(In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll tell you my six-year-old said the hot chocolate was “bad and needs more sugar,” and my two-year-old spilled it all over the kitchen.)

Happy snow day, my virtual friends!
