Snow Days

Every child in New England lives to hear “Snow Day.” It means snow forts and snow fights with a day of fun and no school. Some of my best memories as a child were playing in the snow with my brothers and staying home from school. But, that is changing now for my son. He brought home a stack of work that he has to do called a “Blizzard Bag.” How is it a snow day, if he has to complete all of the work from school at home? Are we losing all of the fun of being a kid?
