I am a teacher and I enjoy living along Lake Michigan. It is a beautiful place that makes me feel like I am on vacation all year long!

December 2, in our our school library, a student helped me build the traditional book tree. It is a fun project that we create each year and the kids all enjoy seeing the slightly lopsided tree with its colored lights on the dark, December days.
No snow yet here, but it should be arriving next week. The town Christmas parade and tree lighting took place this past week and things are beginning to "feel a lot like Christmas."
