We will not be attending indoor soccer practice, basketball practice or Stephen Ministry training this evening….yes, that was all on the agenda. I will not be rushing to fit dinner in, get homework done, drop kids off, and get out the door to teach my class. I will turn on the fireplace, make chicken and dumplings and maybe read a book. The most I will exert myself will be to yell at the girls to take their wet boots off before they walk across my clean floors when they come in from sledding after they get home from school. (I really can’t believe they didn’t send them home early!) It is magical outside! I LOVE snow days. Now I am praying for at least a 2 hour delay tomorrow. If you live here in the D.C area, I pray that you are not having to deal with traffic, but are also safely in your home and enjoying this beautiful day.
I have a sad family today, they wanted a snow day and only got the two hour delay! Middle child is out sledding right now, oldest child is reading a book, youngest is at day care and my dear wife has mumbled and grumbled her way to school trying to figure out how to keep the kids attention on this beautiful day.
On a more serious note it is days like this that remind of the need for a season of rest. A time to allow things to lay fallow in preparation for the spring. We’ve all gone and got ourselves into far to big a rush, winter should be a season of Sabbath rest.
I agree. Winter should be a time of rest. Why does it take a snow storm for us to slow down?
Now…I want pictures of the front yard. I heard it was much more interesting. 🙂
