I was taking Hayden and Keaton to school this morning. All our district schools are out today but Hayden and Keaton like to go to their school on off-days because the school is open for older kids to just play.

The students get to have snacks, lunch, play outside, play video games, and best of all, they don't have to wear their uniforms. I've never seen Keaton take so long picking out her clothes.

On the way to school, I was eavesdropping on Hayden and Keaton's conversation:

Hayden: "Why are all the other schools closed today?"

Keaton: "Because it's a holiday."

Hayden: "It's a holiday? What holiday is it? Are we celebrating Halloween? Halloween is not today, it's tomorrow, you know."

Keaton: "I know Halloween is tomorrow. We're not celebrating Halloween today, silly."

Hayden: "Then what is the holiday?"

Keaton (exasperated): "Hayden! It's Saint Bernard's Day! Didn't you know that?"
