We've Been Good But We Can't Last!

The time is passing fast.

Christmas is almost here.

I'm happy to be done with my Christmas shopping.  I think I may have overdone it. The kids have basically gotten everything that they have asked for and then some.

Santa is being good to them this year. 

But they deserve it.  I feel as if they have been good kids.  Great kids, actually.  With all of praises they get from absolute strangers, friends, and teachers, I feel like they have proven themselves to be pretty darn great kids.

Either that's the case, or I just feel guilty about having to take them out of their school and the only home they have known and move them all the way across the U.S. to the desert.  They are not thrilled about it and I feel bad about having to make them leave.  If you could have seen Cam break down in tears as he hugged The Most Awesomest Teacher goodbye... wow, we were all in tears.  Yeah, she is The Most Awesomest Teacher.  She has had CJ and now Cam for 2 years straight... not because he was held back... because she looped up to 3rd grade.

I'm pretty excited because they are going to be happy.  They didn't ask for much, and they're getting plenty.  I'm mean, they are so great that they didn't ask for much at all.  Speed stacks, mp3s (and not iPods because theu cost too much, says Cam), a BFC girl doll, and an animal habitat.  There were a few other things, but they would be happy with anything.  I'm so proud of them for being so great.


And I'm glad I did!

I'm so very excited for them too! I love hearing about kids that truly deserve to be showered with gifts at Christmas time.

Are you getting packed and ready for the move?
