Why do things get less exciting as we get older? I wish I could bottle childhood enthusiasm for birthdays and Christmas morning; the euphoric giddiness could probably be illustrated with naked, little elves water sliding down a pool of espresso! It’s just so much glee!
Educators experience this glee on the last day of school. It’s the most wonderful time of year for celebrations, tearful goodbyes, and the best exhale.
But, there is another day I can count on for the glee to return, and that’s the 5:00am phone call for a snow day! If you live in a cold climate, you know what I’m talking about. It’s essentially a free day to stay at home and soak up your kids, your baking, your reading, and um, yes, your shoveling.
But, there’s just just been snow much drama this year as our district has had six snow days and over 150″ of snow! And, add three more days for our high school students this week after concerns about too much snow on roof! They cannot return until the snow is removed.
Too much of a good thing isn’t always good!
