I'm so excited about many, many things:
1. ECU Semester is OVER!
2. Concert is OVER!
3. Christmas time is here!
4. Chris and I are going to Beaufort on Friday!
I'm so glad that it's that wonderful time of year. I love Christmas--the music, the shopping, the togetherness....I just LOVE IT! Some people get really jaded about the holiday and all of the commercialness of the season. I love it all--it's like we all sort of get together and things are ok for a little while. For just a little while, most people have a smile on their faces, for at least part of the day.
Tonight at the concert, my kindergarten and 1st grade students sang with the 6-8 chorus (very cute--the stole the show!) Then one of my students dressed up like Santa and surprised each child with a candy cane. Talk about craziness--those kids went NUTS! There was this collective gasp and squeal from every single child under the age of 8--it was sooooo cute! I'll never forget those kids jumping up and down waving as hard as their little bodies would let them.
I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR!!!
