Snow Day!

Katie's school is closed today due to inclement weather.  Katie didn't quite know what to do at first when I announced, "Snow Day!"  Her school didn't have any snow days last year, so she doesn't yet understand that the proper response to your mother telling you it's a snow day is to run around the house like a giddy maniac shouting, "Snow day, snow day, snow day!!!"  Instead, she just stood there and stared at me blankly.

Her blah response could be due to disappointment because we're going to miss the class winter party, but she didn't say so.  I had signed up to be the "party captain" so I'm kinda bummed about missing it.  Once Katie saw our dogs outside frolicking in the snow, though, she got excited and wanted to go out and play.  At 6:50AM.  That's more like it!
