The second group was working on their penguins when we got an announcement to go eat lunch because school would be dismissed in 15 minutes. FIFTEEN MINUTES? We had 15 minutes to finish gluing, pack up book bags, eat lunch, put on coats, and get to the bus. The snow was coming down faster than expected and sticking to the roads, so everyone was in a big rush to get to the safety of home. My kids have never moved that fast before -- usually it takes about 30 minutes just to eat lunch.
Anyway, we made it. Everyone got out and there actually was some snow on my car, so I guess it was good that we sent them all home.
I think I will make a pot of chili and watch the birds at the feeder. The snow is still pouring down and I have no place to go, so LET IT SNOW!
