Today was a crazy day. The forecast was for light, spotty, freezing rain. It started to sprinkle just as I left the lot. A half hour later the radio started to go crazy with drivers calling in with reports of deteriorating roads. I had a kid fall on the way to the bus and kids were falling on the sidewalks at the school. Just after I dropped my secondary students off we went on a one hour delay, as did all of the surrounding districts. The general public started playing bumper cars right about then. The sanders and salters did a great job and the roads were OK by the time we went back out. The driveways and sidewalks weren't. More kids slipping around. Somehow our sander overlooked the drivers parking lot so getting back to my car was interesting. One of the women in my car pool fell two steps from her door.
Tonight was the first time in weeks that we had all four kids together and they were wild. The only meal that all of them will eat without complaint is pizza. We had chicken nuggets. They decided to play SORRY after fighting over who would go first Alex pitched a fit every time it was his turn because nobody would let him cheat so he could slide. So a movie. They picked Robots and I really like that one - until the end. At the end they want to do the Robot dances. Four kids dancing wildly in my small livingroom can be a bit scary to watch but the had a ball.
