Since today is an ICE DAY, AKA a day off from school, AKA AWESOME, I thought I would take a minute and post something on this poor, neglected blog.
It's a bit of a tough day for me, as it's my dad's birthday. But the funny thing is the connection we had over calling snow days. All of my life, if the weather showed any hint of snow-day possibility, I would go to him and ask him to "call it." And dang if my whole life he didn't call it perfectly! And year after year I would share with my students my dad's "gift." I suppose over time it has become mine, as I am known with my students as the "Snow Day Queen."
So who whoulda thunk that in April, the first birthday without my dad, when a snow day was virtually IMPOSSIBLE, that we would indeed get one?
Here is a week of Project Life that was shared on the Simple Stories blog.
