Merry Christmas!

Before I unplug for the holiday weekend, I wanted to wish all of our Simple Kids readers a very happy holiday!

We’re looking forward to celebrating a quiet Christmas weekend, gathering family together for a slow weekend.  Really, it is the simplest things that bring the most joy.

Indeed, the Fleck family has a lot to be joyful about this year.

The Flecks:  Kara, Amelia, Lucy, Max, Jillian, and Christopher

I hope that you and your kids are having a season of joy and happiness!

I know that for some of you 2011 has been an especially challenging year.  This time of year it can get easy to feel overwhelmed, even under normal circumstances.  My hope is that you can find some peace during these last days of the year and that the new year holds a bright future for you and your family.

Thank You

Merry Christmas, from my family to yours!
