Cooper Update

Christmas Festivities are upon us.  We have been busy, busy with new and old traditions, our caroling party, candy train making, reading "A Christmas Carol" as a family, visiting the Polar Express, watching the Christmas Specials ont tv, devouring kiddie Christmas books and plenty more simple joys to come. 

Learning about our cournty United States of America!

Learning about Saint Lucia

At the Polar Express

School has been fun involving dressing up, games, crafts and treats.  What a delightful time of the year December is.  We have learned about the many Christmas traditions around the world, such as Italy, Sweden, England and France.  This week we learn about Christmas in Mexico and Hanukuah.  I've introduced small Spanish lessons into our curriculum now about twice a week.  I figure we can slowly transition into more days and phrases as time passes.  Small and simple is the way to go-after all she is only five-I seriously forget this all too often.     

Kiddos re-enacting the Christmas Story in Sunday School, Elly is the angel.

In addition to all of this busy merrymaking, our hearts and prayers are sent out for the parents and family of Newtown Connetiut.  Those children are Elly's age, and I couldn't imagine losing her or Brinley.  Thoughts and prayers and smypathy for the fathers and mothers of those children and for the courageous adults who lost their lives.
