Well I’m 33 years in this district, I’ve only had two snow days and today was no different than usual. While almost all districts around us closed down, we were open as usual.
Other than allowing for extra time to put on snow gear, the children actually managed to concentrate pretty well.
We did more penguin research this morning, then we learned how to add zero to a number and this afternoon we made our valentines bags.
They finally got the last twenty minutes of the day to play outside and they had a ball! The snow is really dry which is very different for us so it was quite amusing to see them try and try again to roll snowmen balls 🤣
The staff all cleared out pretty quick after school as it was calling for another 25cm of snow starting early. I got home to see the usual sidewalk was cleared and couldn’t help myself- I went for a run. I got 6.75km by doing a few loops in a couple of places as not everything was cleared. It felt good, until I got to Battlefit Class.
Tonight we did these 1/2 TGUs. It meant nothing to me, but seems to mean that we are working on getting up from the floor to a standing with a full press. We also did a lot of swings and then 50,40,30,20,10 of wall balls, KB swings and box jumps. It really helped when the instructor finally found a smaller ball for me to use for the wall balls. At the end we had to do lying overhead raise and then burpees and then sit ups and squat jumps. Overall I survived!
I am home now and going to dry my hair and then collapse into bed. I’m not keeping anything crossed that there will be a snow day tomorrow:(
