December 2, 2010. I don't remember having this much snow this early in the school year. The Black Forest is draped in a white blanket. I was sketching my students today in the classroom, trying to capture all the snow gear drying on the radiators and my student wearing his snow pants in class. It is beyond beautiful outside, a world of God's wonder. Tonight we head into the town square to enjoy the Christmas music and delicious treats and hot drinks, while standing around the burning logs. This is a favorite time of the year.
