Playing Hookie

Might have let the boy play hookie today …. for a physical exercise field trip so to speak…


Ah!!!!!! (Half price day on the hill, Monday-Friday only, this week.) Now that was lovely.


Not a lot of snow nor the best skiing (rocks, etc due to low snow cover and mist/fog lower down the hill), but a fun family day. The boy had a blast, and is becoming a good skier.


Totally worth playing hookie!!



  1. I’ve declared family “snow days” in the past. I think it’s all good.

  2. The Wise Woman knows that, as far as lasting learning and character building is concerned, one day spent out of school is worth ten days spent in. Having your mom decide you can ditch school to go skiing with her? just awesome.

  3. The teacher says, “Hooray for hookie. Can I play too?”

Welcome! I always like to hear what people think of a post, it often leads to a great discussion! I am now responding to comments and questions right in the comments themselves, so other people can follow the conversation.
