I cannot stop thinking about the horrific tragedy at Sandy Hook School.
I am, however, glad I filled the kids in because they all told me there was a lot of chatter about it at school today. My son’s teacher discussed it with the class. His twin’s teacher did not (my daughter did ask her teacher if she had heard the news ) nor did my kindergarteners. I guess the school admin left it up to the teachers. Either way the kids and I talked about it more today as they did homework.
Then it was time for my daughter to attend her brownie meeting, except today it’s a special event as the troop is going Christmas caroling. I fondly remember doing this as a brownie so I feel uplifted that my daughter is having such a fun experience with her friends. She was so excited to go!
She’s caroling as I write this, and I’m smiling as I think about it.
