Hot Chocolate Stirring Sticks!

A Shy Wise Man!

Andrew was a wise man for the preschool Christmas program. He opted to sit on his teacher's lap and not sing (which is somewhat comical, since he is the son of the music teacher!). Some things cannot be achieved, even through the bribery of his beloved tootsie rolls!

He still looked darling, of course, and he thoroughly enjoyed the cookies and punch afterward.

Naomi's Vocabulary

This morning Naomi read a mystery in which a secret code was used for messages. She immediately set about creating her own code for use with friends.

My favorite part was when I asked her if the girls in the book had created their own code or were just using one they had found or been given. Naomi said, "The book doesn't provide that information.". I love the language my 7 year old uses!

Oh, Boy!

We love our fun boys! Here is Andrew, unwrapping a book gift at his preschool Christmas party...
and here is Gabe, helping me out by holding Peter while I get a few things done at the preschool (preparing for the upcoming Christmas program in which the 60 preschoolers who have me as a music teacher demonstrate how much I did [or did not!] teach them. It's actually a little scary - how would you like your job performance to be solely reviewed on 2-4 year-olds' singing in a venue with lots of distractions??).
