To start with, we had snow. This is the second week that we have had snow, and the second time we missed school for two days in a row. That's four days to make up in June. FOUR. And it is only December. There's more snow predicted for next week. If we keep on this trajectory, we could be in school up to July 4th...
What does a schoolteacher do on a snow day? Well, thankfully we still had power so I watched a little TV, shopped online, vacuumed the car, put in the new floor mats for the front seats, ran the dishwasher, did some laundry, decorated the house for the season, made Chex mix, and sent a couple of cards out. The second day was more focused on getting the next units ready for my geometry and algebra classes.
Oh, and I also take pictures...

I love this stuff.
I'm so glad I downsized to a smaller house that is easier to heat!
