Vacation Destination: “The Snow” To See Santa Claus

2 years, 9 months.

Dear Jack,

I’m going to start paying better attention to the class collaborations hanging up on the walls of your classroom.

Even though I receive your art work and other projects each week from your teacher, I don’t necessarily always see the group work unless I make an effort to look for it.

So here’s your latest contribution:

Your class was asked, “Where do we want to go on vacation?”

Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like your answer was a bit different than your classmates’ responses…

While your friends all replied with classic (and by that, I mean normal) answers, you said you want to go to the snow to see Santa Claus.

It’s impossible for me to not think that’s hilarious.

First of all, we haven’t even talked about Santa Claus since… last Christmas?!

So I’m really curious how the thought of Santa suddenly surfaced in September.

Next, I like how “the snow” is simply the location of Santa Claus.

Then, building on that, is the fact that you’re being very proactive about your mission. You don’t have time to wait for Santa to come visit you and bring you toys! No way. You’re going straight to him.

Lastly, I laugh because once you travel to “the snow” and find Santa, then what? How long until either A) he gives what you really came for, which is gifts or B) you just straight up ask him for the gifts you came for?

Forget about the zoo, the beach, or the measly park. You want to go to extremes for our next vacation.

And I respect your plan. It comes across as very… entrepreneurial. That makes me proud, having recently finished the top-selling book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.

Well, Mommy just informed me today that for our next vacation, in June 2014, we’ll be going to Lake Tahoe.

For what it’s worth, there’s definitely snow there…

 

Love,

Daddy
