What can I say about Christmas break this year? Spent too much, ate too much, lounged too much, didn't clean too much. Sound familiar? The kids resume school on Tuesday and I am hoping that list will reverse itself quickly.
In an attempt to make things easier on everyone, I gave the kids each a piece of paper with the headings, "Something I want", Something I need", Something to wear", and "Something to read", which acted as their Christmas list. Each heading was fulfilled and all were pleased.
However, I hope the true meaning of Christmas was instilled in their hearts. I explained to them over and over the meanings of the season and hope they listened. They must feel and know it themselves. I hope they did!
