Kindergartners are going to the Green Acres Farm in Indian Hill to learn about the winter solstice. They have discussed many traditions of the holiday event, including singing and dancing around the Scandinavian yule log, and they have tasted yule cake.

Please make sure your child is dressed warmly on Monday with snow boots, mittens, coat and hats as the presentation is outdoors. Our chef, Audrey Cobb, will be packing a lunch for the kindergartners to eat on their adventure to Green Acres.

STEPHANIE: Let’s skareoke tonight.
RUSS: Okay, I’ll turn in a song for you, and you turn one in for me.
STEPHANIE: Sounds good. Just no Lady Gaga, okay?
RUSS: As long as you don’t do Michael Bolton for me?
STEPHANIE: Agreed.
