Yesterday, Decatur was out of school for a scheduled Snow Day–my kids never really understood what I meant by that, and I explained it ALL DAY LONG.  But, they took the day off as they kept peering out the windows for thunderstorms or snowstorms to begin overtaking the sky.  As you know, I LOVE a good snow day–the unexpected day off that ENSURES a family pajama day.  But, this long weekend at the end of April, as we embark on the Crazy of May was almost just as awesome.  In fact, I’m willing to jump on the every-weekend-should-be-a-three-day-weekend-bandwagon.  It was awesome to wake up yesterday, and not have to put on make up or go anywhere at all.  The kids actually slept in (since I did wear them out on Sunday going out and about throughout the countryside).  And while I spent the afternoon outside playing in the dirt, they amused themselves playing catch, playing army (or imaginary warfare–depending on your viewpoint), creating puppet shows, and rearranging furniture.  That last one was a little hard to digest, but I’ll let the Daddy deal with it when he gets back in town.  After a family clean up song to put the house back in order, we ended the day with a family movie night, and all went to bed rested and ready to tackle this week…I thought.

Of course, this morning gave us our usual Scroggins dose of crazy as the youngest boy woke up with an eye swollen shut, as I ushered us all out the door frantically calling doctors, co-workers, and making possible sub plans in my head…

When’s the next snow day?
