Snow Day. Again...

We are home on our 4th Snow Day in a row.  Between teacher work days, President's Day off, funeral leave, and four snow days from two different storms, Rachel has not been to school since Valentine's Day!  (Kate and I haven't been since the day after that.)  Snow Days are lovely, but by this point we are bored.  REALLY bored... 

We are tired of reading.  We are tired of naps.  (Actually some of us are always tired of naps!)  We are tired of games.  We are tired of all forms of indoor entertainment.  We are tired of playing in the snow.  We are tired of shoveling snow.  We are tired of each other.

But this morning at Granny and Poppy's there was a flurry of snowman making.  And it was fun!  (Yes, I know Katherine is not wearing a coat.  I did not want to pick that battle today.)
After the snowman experience, it was back to sitting in the house with nothing interesting to do.  So we called in the reinforcements and met some friends for lunch.  At least it was a chance to socialize and gave two families' worth of kids someone new to fight with!

It's afternoon now and the snowmen are falling apart, there is a nonstop shower of melt water running off the roof, and the street is serving as a creek.  There HAS to be school tomorrow!!
