Happy Hump Day!
My apologies for not posting on Monday but I was off line due to the carpet installers. Now I'm in the process of moving everything back into my new "office". Trying to establish order amidst choas. I'm not there yet.
Something a little different this week, in keeping with the season. This is a wonderful video of pre-school and kindergarten students explaining the story of the Nativity.
Wasn't that great? That should help you over the hump.
I'm enjoying lots of Christmas concerts this week. Fourth grade choir and seventh grade band (back to back) on Tuesday and seventh grade orchestra on Thursday. If that doesn't get you in the mood for the holiday, nothing will.
Speaking of Christmas music, here are a couple questions for you - which do you prefer, modern or traditional; and what's your all time favorite Christmas song (include the artist if you have a preference).
In place of today's groaner, I want to share a true funny. Conversation at my son's house involving Dad, Mom, Daughter G, and Son C:
D - Who has a favorite Christmas carole?
M - I like The Little Drummer Boy.
C - I like Jingle Bells.
G - I like the Dreidle Song
D - Um, G, I know you learned that song at school for the holidays but that isn't really a Christmas song. That song celebrates the holiday of Hanukkah.
G - Huh?
M - You remember, that's the Jewish holiday where they light the menorah, the special candles, to remember-
C - [breaks in] I know! I know the song you sing when you light the special candles.
D - You do?
C - Sure. [starts singing] Happy Birthday to you...
Have a wonderful day.
