We had a white Christmas here in Seattle and our Christmas break from school started a day early with a snow day! It was nice to get an extra day off from the rigors of every day teaching. I do enjoy school and all my students, but it is nice to have time off as well, especially around the holidays. It has been so relaxing, just spending time with family, golfing, enjoying the weather, the season and the magic of this time of year.
We also got to go to our Grandmother’s, which is actually over the SOUND and through the woods (literally), to Grandmother’s house we go. I posted the video on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuCW0hWFGN4&feature=c4-overview&list=UU2xJPboqa7Z1GtSc6agSUFA
So we took a ferry over the sound, went through the dense woods and out to Grandmother’s house in the secluded forest. It was a fun road trip. The New Year trip we take should be fun as well. Happy Holidays everyone!
