This Sounds Like Fun!

I've never read The Elf on the Shelf before but I just read about it on someone's blog and it sounds like so much fun that I want to try it myself. Apparently, it's about an elf named "Scout" that Santa sends to make sure that kids are behaving well and you can get a little elf to go along with the book. Then every day leading up to Christmas, Scout takes up a different position in the house to "spy" on the goings on and report back to Santa. As a teacher, I always have a hard time making up my mind whether I really want to promote Santa or I really don't say much about it but wow, I can only imagine the power of this elf to improve classroom behaviour if he were to suddenly appear in the days leading up to Christmas.'ve got to love!


  1. Hey Beth it's Mike! I finally found your blog site. It's been good to catch up on what's been going on! Married life is treating me well! The wait has been sooo worth it! Looks like you are doing well also (the cold weather aside!) Elsa and I continue to keep you in prayer. Imagine last Sunday I was asked to say God bless you in French! I am at a new church now...I'll fill you in in an email. Cheers!
