NHD and a Snow Day

I went to National History Day Competition with some of my sixth grade students.  We traveled about 2 hours to the town of Fremont, Ohio.  The students worked hard researching about a topic of their choice that showed a turning point in history.
 It was a long day of judging for them.  I had one student win at this level and  will be going to state competition the same day Kayla and Kota have prom.  Not sure yet how I'm going to be in both places.  I hope one of my colleagues will help me.
 We received a big dump of snow last night.  Enough to close school down for today.  I actually took the day off.  I slept in and did all the things I didn't get to do on the weekend due to the competition.  It was great!  I pulled out a Zumba game I bought for the Wii and haven't tried yet.  I think I'm going to try and use that several times a week to work on some personal fitness.  It sure did the trick, I'm feeling a bit sore and stiff already.  I guess that is an okay consequence of exercise.  I'm going to try and drop some poundage before summer.  All it all it was a great weekend.


  1. Yay for snow days. Except when they occur during spring break. :)

  2. Congrats to your students for the win! I'm sure it will work out for prom too...and I had a snow day too..only it was called "low census" and I don't get paid..but the upside is I enjoyed getting the house cleaned and ready for our trip on Wed...I hope you have a great Easter and I'm really hoping this is the end of the snow season!

  3. Kudos to the kids!

    I am trying to drop some weight, too. So far so good...


  4. I want a snow day!! I love Zumba. I'm trying to lose weight, too, but that's the story of my life!

  5. Wow! A snow day that late in March is pretty incredible. We went the whole winter without one (snow day) and I feel cheated somehow. :-)

    Great displays - that's a big accomplishment for kids and teachers alike.

    Happy Spring!
