She hasn’t long to stay

When I was in first grade the school district was making plans to close my elementary school, so we kids got to visit the other schools in the district to decide which one we wanted to go to the next year. The night before our field trip to the other schools, it snowed. I don’t think it ever snowed in Sunnyvale before then, and I know it hasn’t snowed there since then; it was pretty miraculous.

Anyway, it barely snowed enough to cover the ground, but when we got to Cherry Chase Elementary, I saw that some people who lived across the street from the school had taken all of the snow from their front yard and managed to make a little snowman. Even though it was really mushy and muddy and wouldn’t last the day, that snowman made me really happy, and that’s when I decided I wanted to go to Cherry Chase.
