December is my favorite month. Report cards and parent conferences are over at school, and I get to focus on having fun with my students. Days and nights at home are filled with games, reading holiday books, driving around looking at lights, crafts, hot cocoa, Christmas carols, dancing, great food, singing & laughter, and celebrating Jesus' birthday. The kids get along surprisingly well. Buddy's magic is in full swing. Everyone is joyful and excited. It seems like every day this month holds some sort of adventure.
