It is also very exciting to see that snow has already fallen and stuck to the ground. A couple of years ago the snow came very late, but it seems that this year is.....different.
On another festive note, today is a birthday of one of the bloggers for the Cougar Times who just turned a "staggering' 14 years old today. John Swartzwelder of the eighth grade reported that he feels awfully old and in just a couple of years he will be able to drive. John is one of the older students in his class because he was born on 1996. Most of the other kids were born in 1997. John also says that it is different having a birthday in winter, especially so close to Christmas.
"I guess it's nice to see my family twice during the Christmas season and who can complain with the presents!" he said.
Well, happy birthday to John and to all the students and faculty....enjoy the Winter Break! We'll be back to see you again.
