Well, Christmas came. There is always great anticipation and planning and family get togethers...then it is over. Jared was an elf in the school play this year. He wore his elf hat and secret agent elf sunglasses and had a lot of fun making a memory for the future. Caleb's fifth grade class played their recorders during the band concert. They did quite well. We were pleased to hear that Christmas music was included. I am so pleased that Caleb and Jared are able to attend a small school where the children still perform Christmas plays and exchange presents or books and eat Christmas cookies. In many schools these joys are no longer allowed. I hope the children who attend the large schools where there are not Christmas plays sing Christmas music along with their parents or their siblings or the radio. I hope they put on their bathrobes and play the part of shepherds coming to worship the baby Jesus. These are activities that bring love and unity to families, or at least I believe so.
