Today Jack and Sophie came home from school with both hands full of gifts. All the school children were gathered together to watch a movie, “Horton Hears a Who”, play games and receive gifts from the school. They each received a new book, an eight inch tall hollow chocolate Santa and a clementine. All the students received these gifts. I was so touched that the school would give this much to each child! I really love the small town atmosphere of our little village. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming to our family. What a wonderful feeling it is this Christmas season!
