Today when we woke up everywhere was covered in snow,the children were excited because they knew they would get to play in it at some point during the day. I told them they had school today but I would turn the radio on to see if the school was closed. I was trying not to get the children to excited about having the day off until I knew for sure because in the whole time Big Bird has been at school they have not closed it for a snow day.
I kept an eye on Facebook because some of the mums from the school are on there and they were all talking about if the school was open or not. Then at 8.10am we got the news that the school was closed. The children were really excited and couldn’t wait to finish their breakfast and get dressed so they could get out in the snow and play. When we got outside we discovered the snow was to flakey to make a snowman so we had a snowball fight instead. Then we walked around the village before going to my Mums house to pick up a sledge and head for the hills.
After we had finished sledging at the hills we went to the pub for lunch,we took my parents with us and the children really enjoyed themselves. We have been in the snow for most of the day,the children loved it and to be honest so have we. We have made the most of our Snow Day,here are some photos of what we got up to today.
This afternoon I asked the children if they had enjoyed their day or would they have preferred to go to school? they both agreed they had had a really good day in the snow and it was definitely better than school. They will be so disappointed tomorrow if they have to go to school.
