Hooky!

I contributed to truancy yesterday, acted irresponsibly and disregarded the mountain of work I need to do around the house. I took Paul and Eli to the snow. See, Monday we had buckets and buckets and buckets of rain. Snow fell below 4000 feet in the mountains. Courtney called me on Monday night and said all the cousins were going to skip school and go to the snow. She made a good point: "How often do we get snow days in southern California?" Well, I never need much arm-twisting to shirk non-essential duties. It's such a ridiculous amount of work and fuss for such a short pleasure, but we drove up to just past Baldy Village and found a meadow to play in. Then we drank hot cocoa and went back to Grandma & Grandpa's.

Just think of everything your kids learned by being able to play in the snow? They now have background knowledge that many other kids from Southern CA are without- when snow is mentioned in stories, they'll get it.
