"Don't forget to clean your shoes!" This was Colin's announcement of the evening. It was a weird announcement because Colin never cleans anything voluntarily. Thank goodness someone had clued me in at Cub Scouts Monday or I might have been worried I had the wrong kid.
Tomorrow is December 6th. Here in Germany that means Sankt Nikolaus will be paying a visit to leave a treat in the shoes of good little kiddos, and a prickle for the naughty. My kids are flexible, they are quick to adopt any and all local customs that promise a chance at extra goodies. Tonight they prepared for Sankt Nikolaus by making sure their shoes were clean and ready to be filled. Colin in particular really worked hard at cleaning his, even the soles are clean.
Wonder what they will find in the morning, a treat, or a unpleasant surprise? Maybe both since they are good and bad in turn.
