OK, so it's really a tropical storm day, possibly a hurricane day, but that doesn't quite pull up the warm fuzzy memories of snow days from my childhood. I'm pulling out the board games and we're cooking the "good" food from the freezer in case the power goes out. Tomorrow we're going to snuggle up on the couch and watch it rain.
I have a friend who homeschools, and once or twice every year she will wake the kids up by shouting "Snow Day!" and then they will all take a mental health break. The second day of school is not when a mental health day is most needed, but we don't get to choose these things. We'll just take what comes our way.
