It's Stuck

I was woken in the middle of the night with both of G's hands on my head, pulling at me. She complained, "it's stuck!" apparently upset that she couldn't get my head to separate from my body. I woke right up (uh, yeah!) and told her, "yes, and I like it that way." She giggled and went back to sleep and by light of day can't remember what she was dreaming or thinking.... We got a laugh out of that this morning! :-)

Craft Prep

K's class is in charge of the crafts for the parish Christmas party. Are these ornaments cool enough? Santa's belt, a snowman, and Rudolph (is it bad that I feel the need to explain them?) I think that they are cute, though crafts aren't my thing. My hope is that the Middle School kids enjoy coordinating and that the other kids have fun with these and the three others that the class elected to do (slime, fingerprint lights, and rainbow snowflakes.)

Sociology Final Presentation

Well done, G (with some technical and voice support from K). For G: Three final presentations down (math, anatomy, sociology), two to go (history, herpetology); for K, two down (The Tempest, astronomy), one to go (history). Our academic Advent (season of preparation) winds down...

Religious Education Advent Service Projects

K's class had some work to do:  pack bags for the homeless, make cards for people in the community, create coupons for parents, and write something affirming about each person in their group.

Happy Advent

The Middle School Religion class did a very cool Advent calendar:  each day  is represented by a colorful cut out of an ornament with one of Christ's names.  Inside we pasted one Gospel reading excerpt related to the Christmas story and one service idea.  

When they were all hung on a strip of ribbon, they are so lovely to look at!  Today's was, "leave something nice for your mail carrier, so K is leaving some biscotti that a friend gave me for my birthday.  So happy with it!  :-)  Gorgeous, service/Gospel oriented, and kind-of fun to put together....
