Since we have to get up and out the door by 7:20am on Monday and Wednesday mornings and Elizabeth rings the doorbell at 8:45 on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, Friday is the day when we don't rush to start the day. We relax over a cup of hot cocoa before getting dressed and slowly get all our schoolwork completed for the day. I don't take the day off since the harder we work in winter results in many more hours of playing outside up in Maine (and everyone agrees that they would much rather be stuck inside here).
With the public schools already cancelling classes for the anticipated snowstorm (28"?), we might have a knock on the door from the neighbor girls wanting to play. But as we told one of Will's friends at Boy Scouts last night, "We don't do snow days since we only have to walk downstairs to get to our books."
