Sinterklaas is Coming to Town

This Advent we have been following a blog called the Christmas Adventure Box. It's helping us to be more purposeful in preparing our hearts for Christmas and Jesus' birthday. We've tweaked things a little to fit our family, so instead of discussing St. Nicolas and doing stockings we talked about how St. Nicolas became Sinterklaas and had the boys put their klompens by their door. This morning they were sooo excited to see if Sinterklaas had left them anything! It's been neat to seem them think about what a legend is, and how if Sinterklaas is a legend they found treats in their shoes!
