Go Away Winter!

This is exactly how I feel.  I have never been one to particularly like winter weather and this year I (and the rest of the family) are just tired of it.   We have missed the most days of school in the 9 years of teaching, with the exception of the 2007 ice storm, but we are quickly approaching that record this year.  It is only the first full week of January and we are at 7 days and with a lot of winter ahead of us, that number could easily increase.  We are now at the point that we only have to make-up 1 day for every 2 missed and when we surpass 10 those days are forgiven.  So now, no matter how many additional days we miss, we will only have to add one more day.  The only days off we now are Spring Break, so it is going to be a long 2nd semester.

Tomorrow is Makenna's 6th birthday--UNBELIEVABLE!  She is having a sleepover party with her two best friends who have been in daycare together since they were infants.  We have a full agenda planned with pottery painting, movie watching, pillow fighting, etc. so it is bound to be a great time.
