We are on day two of canceled school on account of snow.
Yesterday, I think someone spilled a glass of sweet tea on the street causing the whole city to shut down.
Regardless, we've had no school and lots of fun. Some of my favorite days are ones like these; when we have to cancel all we had planned just to hang out and stay in. There's a lot of freedom in being unable to go and do.
Yesterday, we invited some new friends from the neighborhood over and the kids played all day. Their big brother is a friend of Darius' and they all live with their Auntie around the corner. We called her several times throughout the day to see if the girls could stay a couple of hours longer and before we knew it, it was after dinner.
Darius decorated a chicken nugget.
I can only do so much.
This morning, we had real-live, legitimate ice. It's now thawing and my kids are wanting to put their bathing suits on to go play in the puddles. And thus is the way of the weather in Dallas. I'm still in my pajamas, the kids are happily playing, and we've got no place to go.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
