It has been a busy week preparing for the holidays. I have tried to take advantage of the short time the kids are both in school to finish up last minute errands and shopping. I think everything is wrapped and under the tree, ready for Christmas morning.
On Tuesday, I went to the kids' school for Waverly's holiday party. I coordinated everything and I think it turned out fairly well. The kids decorated cookies, colored wooden ornaments, made Chex Mix and stamped cards. It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed watching Waverly interact with her peers. I was also able to get to know Waverly's 1:1 a little better. She is incredible! I am so thankful that she is working with Waverly. She actually told me the cutest story. A little boy in the 1st grade class that Wavey joins for music, PE, library, etc really seems taken with Waverly. He came over to greet her and told Erin (the 1:1) that he loved Waverly. Then he told her that Wavey is beautiful. He may be my new favorite kid!
We just returned from a wonderful evening. We went to Chipotle for burritos and then off to a local state park that has a Christmas light display. We stopped for cocoa along the way. The kids actually enjoyed the lights and kept looking out the windows - especially at the ones that moved. It has become a tradition for us.
