Tis the season, isn’t it? The season for family events, cooking, shopping, decorations, snow angels, and celebrating the birth of the baby Jesus. Oh yeah – and school.
But it is the time for family events, cooking, shopping etc. so how do you fit in all this AND school? You don’t HAVE to fit it all it. Isn’t it true that all these seasonal events ARE school?
Be sure to take some time this year to ENJOY the Christmas season. Enjoy your family events. Relish in teaching the traditions to your kids. Spend some time sharing family recipes. Make an effort to get outside and make snow angels with your little ones. And sit around that fire place or cuddle on that couch and read the Christmas story, talk about the true reason for the season and ENJOY the family time that the season can provide.
Do you take a break from school during the holidays? What is your favorite thing to do at the holidays as a family?

When I was a child I remember that Mom read the birth of Baby Jesus in the Bible to us just before we went to bed on Christmas Eve night. There were a lot of kids in our family and this tradition was very dear to us.
Nearly everyone went to church and most children were part of the nativity scene at one time or another. I bet you were too. If your children haven’t gotten to act in the Christmas story be sure to make that a part of their lives.
Great suggestion about the nativity. My daughter got to narrate part of the Christmas story this year. What a wonderful opportunity. Christmas traditions are so important.
