Let ‘Em Shovel, Let ‘Em Shovel, Let …

Dave Chamberlain is one of many who agree with the Coeur d'Alene School District decision to close all schools Friday, in face of an unsubstantiated threat of violence. He comments:

The weather is going to be nasty too, so it is a good day to just hang out…. BUT WAIT!!! What a great teaching moment. Ok, so there is snow piling up, and I am sure a lot of elderly or people with heart or back conditions would LOVE to have some young energetic group of boys and girls shovel some snow and sing Carols … ok maybe just shovel. Then when they drag their little heiney back into the house all wet and tired, you can explain to them that they could be doing shoveling as a job for the rest of their lives. Or, they could get good grades, go to college and PAY someone to do that… Just sayin’

Question: Do you have plans re: how to keep your kids busy tomorrow and for the rest of the holidays?
