I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas. It went too fast, as usual. My little one really enjoyed her new doll bed for her babies. She keeps insisting that she can sleep in it too!
Yesterday, we experienced our first significant snow fall of the year. We got several inches and enjoyed exploring and playing outside with the little one. It was the first snow that she had seen.
As we experienced that first exciting snow fall with her, I couldn't
help but think of the parents of the students that were lost in the
Sandy Hook tragedy and all the firsts that they will miss out on. As a teacher and now a mother, I have been really affected by what happened. I have tried to shield myself from the incessant news coverage and details, but it hasn't prevented me from thinking about it constantly.
I know we are all left wondering how we can help and what we can do. Besides continuing to pray, there is a simple way to send comfort to the students and faculty you may or may not have heard about. If you're like us and may be snowed in for a couple of days, get your kids to help you make paper snowflakes.
Parent volunteers are going to decorate the halls of the new school with as many paper snowflakes as possible to create a winter wonderland for students and faculty of Sandy Hook. Snowflakes need to be sent by Jan. 12th to:
60 Connolly Parkway
Building 12, Suite 103
Hamden, CT 06514

Let is snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
Easier Than I Thought!
