Like so many others, our hearts are completely broken over the horrific massacre in Connecticut yesterday. At times like these, sometimes it's hard to remember the good around us--the beauty and the joy--but, it is still there. This morning, I went outside in the fresh snow and I haven't been that happy in a very long time. It's the simple joys like a child's voice, a blanket of new snow, a smile and friendly gesture of a neighbor, or homemade pancakes for breakfast that really are what life is about. And, at least for us, life is full of those simple joys. It's pretty great.
A few clips of yesterday's Kindergarten Christmas Program:
And a little video of Annalisa singing:
Our next door neighbor has a 4 wheeler with a plow and was having a blast doing everyone's sidewalks this morning. He took Anna for a little ride and she said it was "WAY fun."
