There's nothing quite as wonderful as a snow day. I loved your characters, especially the precocious little boy. Double check your punctuations semi-colons VS commas,and quotation marks. But other than those little minor things the story was a pure delight. You really made the characters come to life.
YAY snow days ! we have had a few of those in England recently too and in the south where it is quite unusual. My 16 yr old daughter still bounces up and down with excitement when school is cancelled. thanks for the lovely topical story
What an appropriate entry for the season. I wish I could say our snow days are once in a blue moon. Although your title focused on a cold winter day, your story was warm and brought back memories of more than a blue moon snow days of my childhood. I couldn't tell in the story if Jeremy also had a snow day. If so, Sarah's excitement was an atypical reaction most Moms have when school's closed. There's usually a "Snow, Oh No" response:-)
Congratulations for placing in the top 10 of level 1!
