Last week was a bit crazy with a day off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day off for Professional Training, and a field trip on Friday.
This week, our goal was to finish up January's testing, and get the kids back on a normal schedule.
That didn't happen!
By Monday afternoon, they'd already announced there wouldn't be any school Tuesday because of the snow predicted. I went home Monday night and settled in. With the weather report, we knew they'd be a chance of Wednesday off as well.
The above picture is the view when I opened my front door. The left picture was taken at 9:00 AM. The right picture was taken at 4:00 PM. It continued to snow until about 4 am the next morning. The total snow in our area came to about 28-29 inches.
Yep, we had Wednesday off, too!
I spent my two days off getting ready for February! I was creating and upgrading a few products: Groundhog Day and Super Football Math Story Problems was updated. I finished up Science and Social Studies for February and created Valentine's Day No Prep Printables - Literacy and Math. Follow the links to check these out!
After 2 snow days, I was amazed that the kiddos remembered to wear their PJs and bring their stuffed animals for our scheduled Spirit Day. This is always a favorite of all the spirit days. I felt a little guilty, since I spent most of both snow days in jammies, and here I am in my jammies again.
Seriously, I sleep in t-shirts. I actually bought those pajamas to wear at school. I'd be far too hot sleeping in flannel pajamas! Plus, I can't stand anything on my legs in bed!
To make it worse, I hadn't worn those pajamas since the last PJ day, and I had to iron them! It just seemed so wrong to iron pajamas!
In honor of this weekend's Super Bowl, our wonderful Sunshine Committee gave us a "Soup-er Bowl" for lunch! Yes there were crock pots filled with yummy soups, along with bread and several desserts. Perfect for a snowy day.
Yes, it snowed again today, and we have a forecast of snow for Monday as well.
Why do I live in New England?
We can complain about New England weather, but we can't complain about New England sports! Our beloved Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, so we all wore our Patriots Swag on Friday.
I wore my comfy oversized Patriots sweatshirt. (Yes, after 3 days of pajamas!) I planned to bring this hat, but for some reason, leaving it right in front of the door wasn't enough incentive for me to remember to bring it to school. It was still in front of the door when I got home tonight.
I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!
I know not everyone loves the Patriots, but I'm from New England and we're known to be loyal to our sports teams, so....
