My daughter, Amy, took these photos of some "writings" from Ocracoke School's Pre-K class. She got a kick out of them, and thought you might also. In describing Rudolph, Amy noticed, all of the girls identified Santa's most famous reindeer as female; all of the boys, as male.

    It appears that the girls may be right. On a news story last eve. it was reported that both male and female reindeer have antlers, but the males shed them early in the season. Females keep the antlers longer and loose them later in winter. Who knew that the reindeer were female? Now about the lipstick I'm not so sure!!!
