Christmas Conversation LINKY

Well it's's here, Christmas break is here!!  It seems as though it's here too fast but I am so thrilled it is.  I've linked up with The Inspired Apple to share a little Christmas Conversation.

Stop by her blog to join the conversation.

I thought I'd share a little about our last day of school until next year.  We had a wonderful classroom Christmas party. I'm beyond thankful for an organized and caring room mom. She truly made the difference.  We did a book exchange and I will be honest.....I have NEVER had a good experience with these.
{the book that everyone wants}

{the book that no one wants}

Seriously, kids crying and upset because they want the book that their mom bought or another student's book because it pops up and their book doesn't.  After a few years of this I said "Nope, never again."  -(maybe because that was Kinder) This year my room mom suggested it.  I didn't want to be "bah-humbug" so I said okay.  She typed up the names, separated them by boys and girls, put them in baggies and typed the letter to go home to parents.

Wow!  The thought that went into the books my students picked out for their secret person was heart-warming.  My heart was thrilled to see just how well the books matched each child.  Some of the kids started reading their book right there at the party. True story.  It was beautiful and magical.  A Christmas Miracle.

Merry Christmas Ya'll from my family to yours!

All My Love,
