Gifted


I was browsing the newsletter we get from the ES, Exceptional Students Program. Emily asked what it was, I told her it's the letter we get because she's gifted. She says no one told her that and I told her she was gifted, but it's not our fault she never opened that gift and used it. Good thing she has a sense of humour. We know she's exceptionally smart, she always has been, she could read when she was about 3 yrs. old. She can spell just about anything. But she's also a tad lazy.
It doesn't look like we will have a white Christmas this year. It never feels quite right when there isn't any snow on Christmas. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the forecast will change.
I've got a few last minute things to pick up, bake and wrap and then I'm done.

Love the pic of Em! Hopefully she will find her gift and a way to use it that she enjoys! And I hope you are home when your package arrives! Most everything is wrapped and tagged so it can go under the tree. Make sure the dogs dont get near it!

I know what you mean about it being weird with no snow. I think there is something magical about snow on Xmas Eve and I love to wake up Xmas morning with a sprinkling of snow (sprinkling, not blizzard...last yr was too much).
