Light and Bright

It's Winter Break!

I have been working hard as a first year teacher, and I am SO looking forward to the next two weeks of rest

and rejuvenation.

It seems that December has flown by, 
but I have tried to open my eyes and ears to the sights and sounds of Christmas,

and enjoy the season as much as possible.

There's four more days until Christmas!

I hope you are enjoying the season. 

I know I am. ;-)

Jess, Bless your sweet young heart. Teaching you know you are touching some lives forever. My daughter teaches 5th grade. She loves it. I know for a fact it is not always easy. Remember your faith when it gets tough. Wishing you a very merry Christmas. xoxo,Susie

Such pretty pictures. And I agree. We should slow down and enjoy this special time. I wish I could put time in slow motion for the next couple of weeks and just savor each and every special moment.
