Not Exactly a Snow Day, But ...

I'll take it!

How can I be sitting in front of my home computer on a Friday at a time when I'm usually spreading my teaching charm to a classroom of eager 8th-graders, you ask?

Easy! It's a ... "bad roads" day! Really. You see, it's been raining here for days. The school system got word yesterday that many of the roads were flooding or just too muddy for buses to drive on, so they dismissed school a little early and called off school today. Because I had planned a half-day off to enjoy the final moments of my daughter's motherless spring break, I was able to take a whole day off to spend with her!

I'm making light of the situation; however, we're actually under a flood warning until around 10 p.m. on Sunday. So, I pray that everyone stays safe and that their homes and belongings stay dry.

But, it's still pretty cool to be able to spend my daughter's last day of spring break with her. Even if she is still sleeping.

We have an early out today (12:45) to finish report cards, but I was done last night with only Art grades to input this morning so I submitted them by 10 a.m. Caitlin is being picked up in about 45 minutes and I am cutting out of here in about the same time to take her to her dance competition.

Enjoy your time off, be safe.

PS - Love your new background! I am already deciding what to put on my background next as I have all my headers for the rest of the year completed. (Sorry - TAG student in me.)

Roban it sounds like a lovely stress free day, albeit a very wet one.
I laughted at the bit about your daughter sleeping!

So glad that you got to have a little sabbatical!

And it takes someone with a real eye for beauty to appreciate my Saturday JPEG--thanks! ;o)

Thanks for coming by 10 Best things. It is a difficult task, but something everything should do, even if only for themselves.

Breaks are wonderful and well deserved! Teachers deserve every break they get.
