On what was supposed to be the last day of school before Christmas vacation, we woke up to about 12 inches of new snow. We already had quite a bit on the ground and it was still snowing. Robby got up to get ready for school and Kirk went out to shovel the driveway so we could take Robby to school. Luckily, while he was shoveling, he heard the neighbors say that school was closed.
Robby was so excited. He immediately put his snow clothes on and went outside to play, along with all the neighborhood kids. It was funny to me how excited they all were that it was a snow day. That day, the whole school was going to a movie and then having Christmas parties, so it wasn't like it was going to be a hard day.
When Zoe woke up, she wanted to go out too. She wasn't sure she liked getting all bundled up, and had a hard time figuring out how to walk in the snow, but once she figured it out she had a blast.
I don't think I have seen that big of a snow storm since I was a kid. We ended up with about 2 feet on the ground once all was said and done. I am glad we don't get snow like that very often, but it was really fun to play in the snow as family that morning.
