Jesus is the reason for the Season! The boys are excited that Christmas is coming in 12 days. They prepared their ‘Dear Santa’ letter and mailed it each asking for something Santa had in mind all along. They went shopping at their schools’ shopping fair. Have attended parties and festivities with joy. Nate age 9yrs learned that the Santa at the events were actually grandpa dressed up as Santa. Grandpa explained that he was really good friends with Santa and that the real Santa has so much to do that he asked grandpa to help share the joy of Christmas and the spirit of giving to others; that story satisfied him. Zack had stopped believing in Santa two years ago at age 6 yrs, of course, he accepts the generosity of spirit is real and once upon a time long ago there was an actual man named Saint Nicholas who gave gifts that he made to children all around him to remind them of the gift from GOD above.
I have switched focus on my educational pursuits from being a Master SPED Diagnostician to becoming a Master Professional Educator with Writing and Literacy emphasis. I am finally following my heart’s desire to write and to teach the joy of writing to others. Dr. Edythe Leupp was correct in telling me that I needed to get back into a classroom, teaching the love of writing to others.
