Snow on the playground

Apologies, apologies.  I’ve not posted on here in the better part of a year.  So much has happened.  We had a wonderful family vacation to Disney World at the end of October and then had a quiet Christmas here in Arizona with just the 3 of us.  It turned out to be even more quiet as I was diagnosed with pneumonia the week before.  Fall Semester was extremely busy as I started studying and Full Length of Playground in Snowhave started the long road to achieving my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I took and passed 6 credits in the Fall Semester.  This Semester I am taking 7.  I have completed 2 x 1 credit classes and am currently almost halfway through a 3 credit class.  Thankfully there is not quite as much homework, so far, from these classes.  I am enjoying myself immensely and John is awesome in all the support he’s given me.  What with working full-time at school (now in a preschool room); studying part-time and being a mother too I certainly have my hands full.  My “To Do” lists get longer on a daily basis.

SnowMy big reason for writing is, can you believe it, we had snow here this week?  It started as a hail storm at 3 pm in the afternoon and the kids at school were absolutely fascinated.  Two of us teachers stood outside trying to prevent parents coming into the parking lot as we discovered at one point it got extremely difficult to get back out as you have to climb a small ramp.  By the time I locked up and left the school though at 5.30 pm the snow had become slush, and then on Thursday we couldn’t let the children play outside for the first half of the day as it was all melting so fast that there was too much water around.  Now, well you would never guess that it had snowed at all except for the memories.
