Can you believe it? It snowed here. I think the last time we had snow in low- lying areas (not mountain tops) was back in 1998. When I got to work we asked the class if they have ever seen snow. 3/4 of them had not. So we went to the snow, it was down the street a couple of miles.

Just by chance I had my camera in the car. I don't know who was more excited me or the students. The students were so fun to watch, they make snow balls and the staff showed the students how to have a snow ball fight. The students have never heard the crunch crunch of walking in snow. They had never seen a snow man. It was great. I know for those of you who live in the snow are going to laugh at our snow. You are going to say that is just a heavy frost. For our class (and me) it really was a winter wonder land.

I love when my "inner child" is able to come out and play. I was able to forget about all my problems just for a little while. I even heard Malinda laughing today. I was happy about that because she has a plate full of problems herself. Miss Sunshine and Mr. Medic had big smiles on their faces. My teacher who once lived in Alaska seemed to enjoy watching the students. Here are some snow photos. The amazing thing was these photos where taking around 10:00 in the morning. The snow had stuck. It was so amazing there were news people all over the place. So I took a photo of Eric Thomas from ABC channel 7 news. I love the humming bird photo.
