Hope is a thing with feathers

It's a busy time of the year, even as Advent is meant to be a time of quiet waiting. For many families, the holidays are anything BUT peaceful! This is yet another reason I love the theme of Hope for this month. We don't have to be busy or buy anything to be lifting up Hope.

And as you are celebrating this month at home, remember that Giving Makes Us Happy and there are many ways to help kids be givers. 

December's Theme is Hope
