Let It Snow!

We loved the Spring and Summer here in Denver but I'm not so sure we are ready for the snow! Last week we got aobut 4 inches of snow one morning and my drive to work was not fun. It was the kind of snow that would have canceled school in St. Louis. I was still shaking when I finally arrived at school an hour after I left the house. I have to get used to it I guess because snows are frequent here but at least it is sunny and the snow is usually gone by late afternoon. People get excited when it snows and it isn't a big deal. It still feels like a big deal to me though. We are supposed to get 2-6 inches tonight through tomorrow morning and I am already dreading the drive. It will be okay and I will get used to it, I guess.

I am ready for the winter break. Two weeks off sounds so good right now. The kids are very hyper and I just need to make it through until next Friday, which will be a crazy day with the winter party and all.

The kids are really cute though. They are excited for Santa to come and have written some great letters. My 2nd graders had a music performance last week and one came to school the next day and told me that he knew the tooth fairy was hiding in the audience. They are always saying funny things. That's what makes teaching worth it.

Have a great week everyone!

I'm ready for a break too. I woke up last night to the sound of rain falling and hoped it was freezing rain. Haha! Nope, it was 49 degrees outside.

Boy can I hear you on driving in the snow! I have done it lots of times, but HATE how nerve racking it is. :-(
