I Can't Stand Winter Anymore!

We had another snow day today, and it wasn't a Blizzard Bag Day.
(See THIS POST if you're curious about the Blizzard Bag Day.)

Years ago, before I was a mom, whenever we reached this point in the winter, I'd have a summer party. I'd turn the heat up in the house, encourage guests to wear shorts and flip flops, decorate the house with beach towels, buckets, shovels, and play a lot of Beach Boys music. (We also might have had some beverages with umbrellas!) It never made the snow go away, but it would always lift our spirits and help us get through the rest of the winter.

A few years ago, we had one of "these" winters, and I could see that the kids were getting to that point... so we took a virtual trip to Mexico!

We actually got into an imaginary plane, took flight, and ended up in sunny Mexico!  The kids are so imaginative, and so are the parents!  The children would talk about how hot they were, and parents would send in Mexican treats for snacks!  

It may be time to bring back Sunny Mexico.  Or at least pretend it's summer!

Are you (and your students) as sick of winter as I am?
You're welcome to join me in starting summer a bit early!

Here are a few of my warm weather items for sale: (Click the images for the links!)

Of course, I couldn't help but offer a freebie as well!

  1. I so understand the feeling of missing summer and the sun. I escaped the long cold and gray winters in the Netherlands 4 years ago, and moved to the sunny South of Spain. Still grateful each day I wake up and see the sun shine!

    Love your creative solutions and happy sunny images. Take care, hope summer will come around for you soon! Un saludo, Sonja

  2. I have had enough winter as well. I have been working on spring products all day. It is amazing how much they do to cheer me up.

  3. When I was little, we used to have beach picnics in the middle of winter too! We would turn up the heat, wear our bathing suits and eat dinner on the floor - so fun! I am so over this snow too. C'mon spring!
