Welcome to winter, right? I don’t care where you live in the U.S., I feel you have gotten SOME sort of inclination that we are in the winter months! In Minnesota, it has dropped to degrees I never even knew existed and have felt temperatures I didn’t know my body could actually handle! It is quite amazing how you can have 80 degree difference in a matter of a week (real feel).
Uniquely and wonderfully made, aren’t we?
Since school started up Jan. 2, we have not had a “normal” week of school. We have either had a day off or a 2 hour delay (often both and multiple ones at that) every week since. Working at school, I have to say I keep more in tuned with the weather and when schools “call it a day.” I have to give props to the superintendents at the schools who have to make those decisions. I know that no matter what, they will not satisfy everyone. Here is my two cents: from my experience, they truly have the best interest of the kids – health and education. We have to entrust the kids to them – it takes a village to raise a child right? I have definitely gained a deeper appreciation for our administration!
Since we are in the middle of winter, we decided to explore all that it means. We took our youth group ice skating this past Sunday night (when they had open skate) and what a blast it was! I was a little surprised at how many had never skated before. I suppose there was a bonus of living across the street from an ice rink back in St. Joseph – we then had our own skates! Granted we only went once a year, but at least we went! This rink was indoors, which was wonderful! They also have curling at this place which is something we would LOVE to try! Who gets to try curling? Especially with the Olympics right around the corner, I am thinking we will have to give it a whirl!
