December 2nd & 3rd Parent Note for Sprouts
Dear Sprouts Parent,
Special Delivery! The Christmas story is one many of us have heard every year of our life. We know it very well, but for our preschoolers, this may be the first time they hear this special story! If we are careful to remember this, we may see the wonder in the kids’ eyes as we talk about the angels, shepherds, Mary and Joseph.
This week we start our Special Delivery with the angel telling Mary that she was going to have a baby and His name would be Jesus! We will have angel costumes to dress up in to share the good news.
Our Bible verse this month is Isaiah 9:6, “God has given a Son to us.”
When my boys were little I drove myself to exhaustion trying to make Christmas scrapbook worthy and this was before the days of Pinterest. I was so overwhelmed by cards, gifts, cookies, parties, etc. that I missed the real meaning of Christmas. I wish I had someone to speak this wisdom into my life. This article has some great suggestions so you don’t miss the true meaning of Christmas. I’d love to hear about your Christmas traditions!
I hope to see you over the weekend!
