no previous part Part 1 of giving the local Kids something they can be there own series no next part

For the last five years I have given Blank Christmas tree Ornaments to the local Grade school across from me. My GrandChildrenn has been going over there and I still have three going over there and one at another grade school. I do this for them to paint and keep for there own, I know not all children celebrate Christmas but that does stop the schools and everywhere else from decorating so I figure that while I made them to sell, I would give them to my grandchildrens classes, well that grew to the whole grade school, so now this is my fifth years to do this for and the only thing I have ever asked is to see them after they have decorated them and ready to take home. I Love the kids exspression on there faces when they have them all done. I added a little something this year and I have added a GingerBread Man for all the TEACHERS. Just thought you all would enjoy this little bit about what a little something anyone can do to brighten up a childs face.

Good idea Jim and a nice thing to do for the kids. I’m sure they will remember it. You mean they won’t even let the schools decorate for Christmas over there anymore? Times have certainly changed in the U.S. since I lived there if that is so. I’m sorry to hear that.

I am not saying they don’t decorate, but the way things are going the way i see it isbefore long they won’t, but i see alot of different cultures here and I know some of them don’t believe in the whole decorating bit, so i brong it to the kids anyway. I give the kids a little of me anyways. I ask for nothing but they give me everything in there looks and letters they give me.
