I always feel so nostalgic at this time of the year. I guess it is all of the wonderful memories of my family I have from this time of year. In fact, we have always spent Christmas time busy with lots of friends and family. These are pictures of my VERY first Christmas, when i was only 4 days old!
I think this year, I am feeling even more nostalgic because we are not going back to Ohio to see my family. For the first time in 37 years, I will not see my parents or other family members for Christmas. While I realize how lucky I am to have had this many years with them, I am still struggling some with the realization that I won’t be spending time with them. That is one of the biggest reasons I wrote my December Memories post over on Upper Grade Memoirs about my family memories rather than classroom memories.
No matter who you are planning on celebrating the holidays with this year, I hope you have a fun and memorable time! I really am looking forward to spending time making new memories with JUST the four of us.
