Winter break is here! It doesn't feel like a break yet. So much to do. So much going on. Not much peace yet.
I spent the last two days at both of the girls' schools, enjoying Christmas programs and parties, and reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas to Big Sis's first grade class. I love all those kids. I don't think teaching would be for me, but I love teachers. (Speaking of teachers, Vanessa at Silly Eagle Books wrote such a beautiful ode to teachers.) Here are some scenes from the last couple of days.

|Pretty handprint wreaths. When we arrived for the party, the whole door to the classroom was covered in wreaths.|
Our reading time is beginning to dwindle. Little Sis wanted me to read a couple of Molly McIntire American Girl books to her, so we've started one of those. Big Sis is still reading her Junie B. Jones books, but I got her the book Just Grace from the library. She tried that out tonight. I'm reading The Uninvited Guests - I've had to put it down so many times that I had to start over. Many Christmas books still on the nightstand, too! My sister's wedding is tomorrow, and my mother and aunt are coming to town today. Most Christmas presents are ready to go. Whew!
Wishing everyone a very lovely holiday. I'll probably check in at least once before Christmas Day, but I know many of my lovely readers will be busy!
