the-polar-express1We went to Literacy Night last night at Amber’s school. The Polar Express was the theme. First, we got to write letters to Santa and then take a ride on the Polar Express. They had rows of chairs set up in the hall behind a cardboard engine front and the superintendent was the conductor. He walked up the middle reading the story, showing everyone the pictures, and cookies and chocolate milk were served during the trip. It was really cute. The kids decorated train cookies to take home and there were treats and hot chocolate in the cafeteria. It was a fun evening.
