It has been a mad house here. I was sick for 5 weeks with bronchitis and pneumonia. And then right at the end I caught some kind of parasite.
Anyway here is a picture of Kaden on his dream toy. He swears up and down that Santa is going to hoist this truck off his sleigh and drag it thru our nonexistent chimney. And everyone that says hi to him or even turns his way gets an ear full of his Hopes and Dreams. So, since he is so adamant about this toy I have to say he is right. We bought it and have been hiding it so carefully, because not much gets past this little guy. He is like the eyes and ears of this family and he is only 3. So, he will see this big, ridiculously priced hunk of plastic early Christmas morning. It will make all the less expensive, but thoughtful presents look like dollar store rejects. But, I know the look on his face will smooth out the wrinkles of our credit card bill each and every month. Right?
Well, I am off to grade some workbook pages. The kids had it very easy the past few weeks. I did tell them that they will have to work right up until Christmas. They will get Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off of school. And they were okay with that. I will probably let them choose two subjects each day to complete during the week of Christmas. Oh, and they will have to do silent reading too.
Have a good night!
