Why I have not been blogging much this week.
The last two nights I have been volunteering at our church for a 3rd grade advent retreat night. At it, the 3rd graders come to 8 different stations to do a craft that puts Jesus in perspective.
My station? An Advent chain. You know, a paper countdown to Christmas chain, except with things we can do for and with others listed on each slip ~ one for each day until Christmas.
What a lovely thing we can do this time of year to redirect our children's focus (at least try) away from themselves and their I wants.
