Inclement Weather Days
Sunday night we got the call....the call every teacher dreams of, every kid prays for and every parent dreads. Due to inclement weather our county was shutting schools down for 2 days. Now you Yankee folks and Mid-westerners that get snow can laugh at us for shutting down before snow even hits the ground. But in all honesty the real reason I think we shut down at first sign of bad weather is this, we are a very diverse, rural Georgia county. Diverse in terrain and economic status. Our county has places buses have to be able to navigate to that honestly need 4-wheel drive on occasions. By law, our county has to provide transportation to and from school everyday. The thought of a little child standing at the bus stop in 7' weather without proper attire for who knows how long waiting for a bus that might not even have heat is too much for my heart to bear. You'd be amazed at what children wear to school when it is blazing hot much less freezing cold. I've a whole soapbox for that but don't want to get into here. Ask me when ya see me sometime. Even my daughter made a comment about an 8th grader who showed up yesterday in 10' weather in a mini skirt. I mean really.
Tiffin and I's upcoming Southern Circle Retreat. We are kinda in dreamland right now because it actually sold out this year!! We are switching up just one project so samples had to be developed. And inclement weather days in bird flannel PJ's were the perfect days to do just this.
