|Zachariah building a Gingerbread house!|
Perspective is a wonderful thing, although often lacking in the stories told by the little ones. Zachariah came home from school very excited about us coming into his classroom to help him build a house.... a house we asked, that seems like a pretty big project for one morning in Kindergarten. We were informed with great assurance that this would be enough time as the house is only for one person so not as big as a normal family home.
It didn't take a lot of guessing for us to be pretty sure we were coming in to make Gingerbread houses. With great excitement on the day we showed up ready to build our house! I looked at the supplies we were given and asked Zachariah who exactly he was planning to have live in this house? The classroom Elf he said with surprise that I wouldn't know such an obvious answer. When my facial expression still didn't look to be that of one with all the knowledge he proceeded to explain to me that the Elf in the classroom looked like a toy but in reality was a real elf that played in the classroom when all the children went home!! it looks like THE ELF ON THE SHELF really lives in Ottawa!!
Unfortunately, the elf is still looking for a new home. We may have eaten the one we made for him!!
