It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Today has been a Christmas kinda day.

No, there hasn't been any snow.

The giving spirit of Christmas has been here. This morning at 6:30, we got the kids up to go to Walmart in Winchester, where we were going to 'Shop With A Cop'.

"Shop With A Cop" is a charitable program sponsored by the several law enforcement agencies in Winchester. They collect monies through-out the year and at Christmas time, they give under privileged kids a chance at a few Christmas presents. Volunteers go with the kids and guide them to clothes and toys. We, my SkillsUSA students and I, were there to volunteer. So were the Cheerleader, and the FFA, and others. It was a grand time.

Kyle was not able to go with it. It was sad. He started getting the coughing crud Saturday and was still hacking this morning. He, reluctantly stayed home. Chella had a great time and found that she really likes helping others. She wants to volunteer other places. I think it is a capital idea. She needs more outlets. She needs to be more places than hanging with the local hoodlums. She needs to meet other kinds of kids. She gets all the hood rats that she doesn't need around here.
We will see what becomes of this spirit after the holidays.
