Kevin Helps Out Santa at School

A few days ago, we got a call from Joshua's school saying they needed a helper to fill in for Santa on Wednesday. Apparently, Santa was not going to be able to make it since it was his busy, busy time of the year, and a Santa was need for photos and visiting with the kids at school. Kevin graciously agreed to help out and got to go help out for about four hours.

Since he knew a lot of the children and their parents, it was funny to watch him say things to them about what they liked to do and to name their parents. The look of WOW on their faces was priceless.

It seems that the fourth graders, smart little children that they are, figured out that Joshua's dad was filling in for the real Santa that day and this was the buzz around the fourth grade.
During the time Kevin was taking photos, I helped out in Mrs. Stroup's room. The fourth graders were studying about Colonial Times and doing crafts related to this. On Monday, we strung popcorn and cranberries. Today, Mrs. Stroup traced silhouettes of the children on black paper and we cut them out and let them put them on a white background. It was a lot of fun and cool to see how they turned out.
For parents who are interested, Santa reports that electronic items were tops on the list of wants this year, including the Nintendo DS, Wiis (a really hot item) and Playstations and Playstation Portables (PSP).
