At our weekly faculty prayer this morning, our principal gleefully informed us, "Eleven hours until break!" We joked that she should announce it over the PA every hour. At 8 on the dot, our secretary came over the loudspeaker, rang some jingle bells and said, "Eleven!" The countdown continued throughout the day - the teachers got a kick out of it, but my kids were baffled. "Why does she keep saying numbers?" Tee hee :)

This is the first night in I don't know how long that I haven't been busy with some sort of school-related work. I spent my week doing all sorts of last minute holiday prep things for my kiddies: assembling foam photo frame Christmas ornaments for the kids to give their parents, making slice & bake cookies for today's mini Christmas party (which was just cookies and a movie - "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street"), wrapping the kids' gifts (Christmas themed books that I got with my bonus points from Scholastic)... and tonight... NOTHING. It's a beautiful thing.

Four more hours of teaching... and then I can relax... celebrate... see my friends... sleep (ah, sweet sleep). It will be wonderful.
