My feelings are a bit of a seesaw. On one hand, I am thrilled! I love spending time with my guy and these days feel like bonus days! They are like "work one day, get two free." There are snuggles, reading, movies, cooking, crafts, etc. It is bliss. We goof off, skype with family and snack all day, too. His snack of choice? croissants. (Yes, he is my son and P's niece!)
On the other hand, this teacher has lots to teach and these snow days are not helping my cause! We have missed four days due to a winter storm a little over a week ago, two days due to this storm, four furlough/President Day days, and the MLK Jr Holiday. That is a lot of not school this nine weeks. That's a lot of not learning, a lot of not reading, a lot of not solving math problems, a lot of not learning about important figures in our country's history. Woe is me.
To balance the seesaw, I'm planning for the school days ahead (or at least I will soon) and making the most of these bonus days.
What would you do with a snow day?
