Best Quote: Riding home from Christmas day activites, looking at the pretty decorated houses, my 5 year old Grace, almost jumped out of her seat when she heard the “Hallelujah Chorus” play on the radio.
“Hey! This is the song I wrote! How did they (the radio people) know it?!” she yelled out. Her smile couldn’t have been any bigger. Yes, she “wrote” the song months ago at her Grandma’s house on a fancy shmancy keyboard that was on some sort of demo setting.
Best Book: I just finished reading The Mysterious Benedict Society to my 8 year old. I highly reccommend it. It’s a fabulous book, even for adults. We have started the sequel.
Best Present: My Christmas Cactus, which I have been faithully taking care of for the last eight months, bloomed for the first time two days before Christmas.
Two more days until the kids go back to school. I will be happy to get back into a routine again – vacation has really made me unproductive. I have a whole week before I start my classes again, and hopefully I can get a lot of packing done in that week.
Best thing I’m doing today? Taking my kids ice skating for the first time!
