Gotta love Snow DAYS (yes, two!) and a Peek at my (short) Week!

We are on snow day #2 here in Northern VA. Not like the snow day's we are used to in upstate NY. My fellow NYer's just laugh at our snow days, but I am not going to complain for sure! I've had to change my visual plans twice, but that's okay too. A nice short week with a field trip, followed by our week leading up to Winter Break will fly right by and then it's back to NY for the holidays. 

And for my holiday gift to my students for next week before break...SNOWMAN SOUP! Found several different photos of this idea on PINTEREST (this one is from Coley's Corner, click photo for original post). I have cute little Christmas bags from the Dollar Tree, a pack of cocoa, mini marshmallows, a mini candy cane and Hershey milk chocolate chips. Not sure if I will make my own labels or get them from someone else. We'll see! I'll post my final products next week when I make them along with some photos from our Polar Express Days!


  1. I'm with you, girl! I'm originally from Ohio and there is absolutely NO WAY this would be a snow day back home! The sun is literally shining outside our apartment building right now. So crazy!

  2. Loving your blog! I'm from the northern midwest but lived in Virginia Beach for a winter. I am always shocked at how differently we handle the snow. Sometimes I wish we would just give in and take extra snow days... But then I remember that our tax payers pay for snow plows and not air conditioning in the schools. While I love the heat and would never complain, I also would prefer to avoid hot and irritable elementary students! There are only so many popsicles in the world to cool them down! Enjoy the days off.
