I am thankful we all made it home and that there were teachers/schools ready to jump in and help all of the kids out. It is simply amazing how much teachers contribute to a child's world!
We did enjoy the snow though. I took my class outside to play during recess and they were like kids in a candy shop. They only see snow every few years, so it was something worth playing in.
My youngest son does not remember the snowstorm that stranded us for a week in 2011, since he was only 5 months old. He was especially delighted with the weather, although has informed me that he does not like when his brothers throw snow in his face.

It has been nice having an impromptu vacation. I played around with my Silhouette and actually made my son's Valentine mailbox for his party in 2 weeks. I am not often ahead on much, but hey, this is one less thing off my list.
Valentine (math story problems )freebie for my TPT store. I made a set of math task cards that cover several skills. We are heading in to crunch time and mixed review is becoming crucial. I would love some feedback, so if you download them please let me know what you think.
I had some work I needed to get done, but unfortunately I left that stuff behind in my classroom, not thinking we would be out for 2 days! Ooops, I guess Friday will be a hectic day as we pick up where we left off and try to keep the ball rolling.
I have been incredibly busy lately. Seriously, it seems that I am running non-stop lately. So when I have managed to stop, I have crashed. 2014 has started off with a bang! I apologize for my minor disappearance, I am doing my best to keep my head above the ever rising tide!
