School's out for snow

Guest post written by Rita Bronson

Even though I remember how excited I used to get as a young kid whenever it would snow, I'm still amazed by just how crazy my kids act when they find out that school is cancelled for the day. I'm glad that I'm a stay-at-home mom because I don't have to worry about setting up babysitters for them and driving to work on the bad roads.

But I don't really have to be concerned about that, actually. When they were off of school for a few days last week, I looked up the recipe for snow cream with my Satellite Internet and got them to help me some of it.

I had made it before a long time ago so they didn't really remember me making it for them. But they loved it! Th! en the next day they asked me to make some more of it and I told them that it was only really good if you make it one the first day right after the snow falls. Luckily, I also had some left over, so I just made it go a little bit further by adding in some more milk and sugar. They didn't know the difference.
