This afternoon B and I were sitting in the car while G was in gymnastics. He was working on homework at the time. I took out his folder to sign and see a paper in there from the room mom.
Can anyone guess what this paper was concerning?
It's that time of year. It involves food, plates, cups & candy.
Come on, you know what it is.
That's right. It's time for our annual........
"Winter Party??" I say. (B looks at me like I'm losing my mind.)
"A Winter Party????"
I cannot even describe the level of disgust I felt at that moment.
Our children are being taught that they can't celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ in schools.
I tried to explain my anger to B and told him - if we're not celebrating His birth, there is no need to have a party.
I tried to calm down but must admit that I'm still just as disgusted as I was earlier tonight.
To me, this is just a confirmation that we've made the right decision about homeschooling.
I just can't continue to allow this "political correctness" to mold my children's minds any longer.
In our home, at this time of year, we proudly celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior and that's what our children will celebrate at their parties.
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:10-11
