I am going to be honest and say that I really don’t know the best way to get up and going again. Everything feels so different and my heart is still so heavy. However, after taking the weekend to reflect and grieve, I want to take a small step forward. I am going to do this by celebrating what my own first grade students have been doing. I know it doesn’t change anything, but returning to some sort of “normalcy” is how I am able to work my way through the healing process. So, here goes nothing . . .
Last week my kids were wrapped up in everything Christmas. We made our parent Christmas gifts, crafted Christmas Cards, and studied holidays around the world. My favorite country we visited (as it is every year) was Australia. My “cold Christmas” kids flip when they think about it being warm at Christmas time. To help us really celebrate Australia and their traditions we ate BBQ chips and made super cool Christmas “Sunnies” or sunglasses with our BIG 7th grade buddies last Friday.
