How do you feel this week? If it’s been a bad week, you probably feel bummed. You just want to stay home, watch TV, and eat junk food. Or maybe, you’re having a spectacular week. Perhaps, you got a wonderful present from your parents yesterday… a new car! Today, you’re going to hang out with your friends and drive around the city together. Days like these can make you feel over the moon.
The moon is over 300,000 kilometers from Earth. That’s far. If something makes you very happy and very excited, you might have enough energy to jump over the moon. It means that your life is incredible at that moment. This is why we say we feel over the moon when we hear extremely good news or when something amazing happens. Something that makes your day can make you feel over the moon.

Jordin: Over the moon and under the mistletoe!
Jordin and Andy are volunteering together. It’s almost time for the holidays, so they’re giving presents to little kids. Jordin thinks Andy has a giving spirit. He started volunteering when he was just a rug rat, and he’s still doing it now. Jordin had a spectacular time with him today!
At first, Andy was bummed. He wanted Sheila to volunteer with him, but she was busy. That’s when he invited Jordin to hang out instead. This made Jordin over the moon. She likes Andy a lot, and because they’re standing under the mistletoe, she gives him a kiss. And then, Sheila appears….
Do you have a giving spirit? What kind of presents do you like to give to people?
