After our Spanish Bingo, Number 2 game, snack, and Story Time (guess what we read?) it was finally time! Ethan grabbed his ticket and "climbed aboard" The Polar Express (or our 25 year old sofa). Not before I captured some photos of Ethan staring at his ticket for quite some time. We drank hot cocoa and had our tickets punched when the children did. It was a great time!
I waited to do this day later in the month since I wanted Ethan to know what Christmas is truly about! We also talk about Santa or Saint Nicholas with several books about what history has told us about Saint Nicholas.
