It was sad to see Christmas break come to an end. I felt like it went by in the blink of and eye and I wasn't ready for it to be over. With just a day into the back to school norm, while the rest of my family slept, I was (as usual) up early, just about to hop onto the treadmill and begin my day. Just before climbing on, I heard a text coming through my phone. I had to check it, wondering who in the world would be sending me a text at 5:20 am? I was ecstatic when I read the text -- "icy conditions, school is cancelled, enjoy the snow!" Yay! I finished my workout out and immediately headed out to see the freshly fallen snow. In the short time we have lived here, there have been a number of storms (rain, wind, and snow storms). Because of our location on the coast, our little town always seems to miss the storms that are circling all around us. In this case, the storm left just enough of it's mark to cancel school and leave a sparkly white across the city.
I love the snow! It was thrilling to look outside and see everything covered with a beautiful frost of white. What made the day that much sweeter, my kids were home! Yay!
A total of two days were cancelled from school while the last of the black ice melted off the roads. I loved having my babies home a few more days before we were required to head back to the daily routine of school. Such a great way to end the Christmas break!
