Anticipation

Tomorrow Sinterklaas is celebrated in our ancestral country of the Netherlands. This giving of gifts on the eve of the sixth has become a tradition in our home. It is usually something small and fun. Of course their shoes must be filled with Dutch treats also. We've made it very simple so far, but I think now that all the kids are older and reading well, we're going to have them start making gifts and poems for each other and coming up with fun ways to wrap their gifts too. The anticipation for tomorrow was quite high in the house today!
