Christmas break is coming up fast! I'm probably looking forward to holiday vacation as much as my kids. After break begins, the fact that Girl Scouts, art class, homework, chess and drama club all take a break gives the family schedule the illusion of a beautiful empty expanse of free time. However, experience tells me that we'll manage to find many other things to do during Christmas break and that working while the kids are home is never easy.
But I can dream because the next week--packed with parties, activities and events--is crazy. And add to all of that Christmas shopping. Teachers are on the top of my gift list.
I have three kids, but six teacher gifts to buy this holiday season, each child's home room teacher plus a couple tutors and the piano teacher. For the teachers, we always pitch in with the rest of the class for a group gift, but I try to come up with a little something, just from us, to let the teachers know how much we appreciate them.
