Back to Normal

My Fleet and I had a wonderful Christmas and hope you did, too. (His aunt gave him an MP3 player--he liked it.) We glutted ourselves on fudge and candy canes. Our house was clothed in the garish golds and glitters of Christmas decor.
Everyone gave and everyone got. Wishes were granted. We studied the story of the birth of our Savior and felt the Holy Spirit witness that it was real. There were days entirely filled with video games and snow forts and movies. We had a wonderful Christmas and hope you did, too.Today, we returned to normal life. We had school and covered math (what exactly is the real-life use for square roots?), reading, writing, and work. There were only minor, feeble complaints. Everyone was ready for routine.
Breaks are good, though. I heard, This is fun! more than once. But they are called breaks for a reason--I think the human spirit longs for growth and learning. Sometimes we may feel otherwise, but, really, no one wants to be lazy all of the time. Like the song says, When you get up, Get Up! It's healthy!

The New Year comes at a good time.
