Christmas in Kindergarten

My kids are CRAZY!  First of all, on Tuesday I put up the tree, the tree was up in the school and it was officially December.  While my kids have no clue when Christmas is they know it's coming.  They come in every day and ask if today is Christmas.  Then to top that off, we woke up yesterday to a blanket of snow.  That made the kids really excited, but also meant no outdoor recess because it was too cold.  So, they are going a bit stir crazy.  Enough to really frustrate me. 

But then...God reminds me they are just kids.  He reminds me that I am a teacher because these kids need me.  This morning I took in a snowman that I got last year that lights up and changes colors.  Watching my kids when they saw it this morning was such a special moment.  They all stopped and just stared in awe.  My room was silenet.  It was really neat to watch.  Then the silence was broke and the craziness returned.  But it was such a magical moment.

It was pretty magical when we saw "dead Santa" too... just not sure how you'd explain that one to the kids!
