Cold Day Off

This has definitely been a strange winter. I had never heard of cold days, but now we have had 3 of them. As I look at next week’s weather, it looks like there could be a few more cold days on the horizon. (Ann Arbor Public Schools already have Tuesday as a scheduled day off, and Monday is a day off for middle and high school students).

I will say that I am glad that AAPS made the cancelation decision last night and I was able to turn off our alarm clocks. I just checked the current weather and with the wind chill it is -23F, so it was the right decision.

My daughter was not looking forward to the day off today. On Fridays, they have a Fun Friday time. This week, my husband was planning a demonstration with dry ice and liquid nitrogen. She was looking forward to the first Science Olympiad practice to find out what Science Olympiad was about. She was also looking forward to attending Parents Night Out.

If you are wondering how to entertain the kids today, Jump City has added an extra bounce today from 1-3p. Xtreme Bounce Zone is always open 10a-7p on Fridays. Jungle Java is open from 9a-8p.

If you are thinking of going to a movie, Frozen, The Nut Job, and The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug are playing. My daughter and I enjoyed Frozen and The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. We have not yet seen The Nut Job.


I just received an e-mail from Wild Swan Theater that their production of The Owl’s Winter will still be performed today. The play is for children PreK-2nd grade. The play feature’s stories from Arnold Lobel’s The Owl At Home. Tickets are still available for both the 10a and 1p shows today. After the play, attendees will have the opportunity to meet an Owl from the Leslie Science & Nature Center.

What are your plans for the day?

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
