Delays and Early Dismissals

Well, March has gotten off to a snowy, slushy, icy, messy start.  We are halfway through the week and have yet to get in a full day of school.

Monday – 2 hour delay
Tuesday – 11:30 dismissal
Wednesday – 2 hour delay

*Pre-K is cancelled on 2 hour delay days

So how have we kept ourselves busy with the all of the time that the kids haven’t been in school and the weather has been less than desirable?

Monday – Scrubbing, vacuuming, mopping, and laundering due to PukeFest 2015.  Evelyn threw up once Sunday night, and apparently Charlotte caught Evelyn’s bug on steroids.  Charlotte started throwing up a little after 1:00 on Monday afternoon, and vomited 14 times!  Thankfully, the doctor called in some Zofran for her Monday night.  Once she took the Zofran, she went to sleep and made it through the whole night without any issues.

Tuesday – (Charlotte stayed at home this day – 24 hour rule – and thankfully no one else has gotten sick!) 

Trenton informed me that he has a permanent tooth.  The dentist said to start wiggling the baby one.  They like letting baby teeth fall out on their own rather than extracting them.  Trenton got busy wiggling, and I got busy searching all thing Tooth Fairy on Pinterest!

We started making our way through our Lenten coloring/activity books that I found on Rosie’s blog.  The kids love them!

We also played peekaboo in Evelyn’s favorite hideout.

I know I’m kind of biased, but isn’t she the cutest thing?!?!?

Wednesday – Building and wrecking towers of blocks.

A hilarious game of copycat that I wish I would have caught on camera.  Evelyn and Charlotte were copying each other and it was just the cutest thing ever!  By the time I got my phone out, Evelyn hit her head and then was done.

Making cookies for our neighbors.  Our neighbors are so great and really help us out a lot.  We thought that we would repay their kindness with sweets.  Because who doesn’t love a good homemade cookie?


We’re supposed to get more snow tonight.  The forecasters aren’t sure exactly how much. I’ve heard anywhere from a coating to 8 inches – they’ve got their bases covered!  So I’m not holding my breath for a full day of school tomorrow either.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Friday though! 

*And if you want to get in on my March 21 Day Fix group, let me know ASAP.  We are starting Friday, March 13th!

Holy crud! I am starting to get sick of all of this snow for everyone else. Obviously here in Georgia we have lucked out... but I am really starting to feel for everyone not in our shoes. Thank goodness you guys haven't had the bug passed around while being stuck inside.

We've been getting snow and ice all week too! Blah. I'm so over it. Looks like you guys have been making things work!

Meg Taylor said...

Wow, that's a lot of snow!! Looks like y'all are making the most of it :) Evelyn is getting so big!

Hana R said...

Hope the weather starts improving for y'all!!! At least you're making the best of it!

That peekaboo picture is adorable! And so much throw up, hopefully nobody else gets sick.

Sarah said...

I don't think I've ever seen a tooth like that before! And are you guys getting some better weather next week? I THINK today might be the last day in the teens and there was a day or two with 40 degrees in the forecast. WHOPEEE!!!

We got another 8+ inches down here in TN over night, I'm quite over the snow myself!!! Looks like C is really enjoying that cookie making!!!

You're not alone. I feel like my little guy hasn't had a full week of school in months!

The puke bug has hit our house too. Alex last weekend and Taylor vomited this morning. I hope you guys are on the up and up. 14 times is A LOT of cleanup.
