when you least expect it...
i admit it, i haven't looked in my girls' backpacks since they went on christmas break. we put them in the closet, did their daily reading, and aside from that... have just had fun. so when i was checking tonight to make sure that everything was in order in their backpacks... this is what i found in my youngest daughter's backpack.
she is in kindergarten, and they have 5th grade buddies that do little activities with them. one of them is to help them write a letter to santa, and then they get one back... from "santa". this was her letter... and the letter she received back. left me in tears... and not really sure what else i should say. just seemed to need to get my thoughts down while they were piled up here in the lump that is in my throat.
now i'm going to go give her an extra hug & kiss.
