Last night as we were going to bed and it was 42 below outside, I said to Aaron, "If it's -42, it might as well be -50 so they'll cancel school and I won't have to wait for the bus in this. A girl can dream, can't she?"
Well, lo and behold, dreams do come true. I woke up, checked our thermometer, it says -45, and then checked my phone and was rather excited to hear a voicemail from our dear superintendent informing us that school is canceled for the day! It must be 50 below or colder at the bus barn! Good thing I learned my lesson and checked my phone before dragging kids out of their cozy beds and into dangerous arctic conditions!
