What is santa up to in August?

Things are definitely picking up at the north pole. Santa is hard at work starting his second check of the list. He is also having daily meetings with the head of each department to make sure everything is on schedule. He was also quite pleased with the reindeer's performance during the test flight last month and is giving them a couple of weeks off to recover. The toy shop is a little behind because of a accident during the fireworks display last month that set the roof on fire. The got it fixed in a couple of days but they weren't able to make any toys during that time. They have increased the work schedule to 24 hours a day and 6 days a week now to keep on schedule. They still got Sundays off to be with their families. Also no more vacations are allowed until after Christmas. The new toy development shop has stopped coming up with new ideas for this year and are now consecrating on helping out in the workshop. The mail room is starting to receive the first trickle of letters coming in. They are quickly getting them entered into the new computer network and sent over to the workshop. Everyone is thrilled with how the newly renovated mail room is working. So far everything is close to being on schedule and Santa hasn't started to worry yet.

Santa is also busy being that it is August making sure all the trainee elves are doing well. It seems there is a new elf named Laney (I think he starred in Prep and Landing !!) and he is having a bit of a hard time but Santa being Santa, is patient and kind and Laney will be just fine. After all, he has a senior elf named Wayne to help him as well as all the other elves and the senior elf, Santa himself !! Thrasher the reindeer (Dasher's cousin) is getting plenty of R and R since he is the mainstay of transporting the elves on their Christmas Eve mission and once the Christmas season starts it is go go go !! Of course, Mrs. Claus is busy, busy cooking and baking all those wonderfully yummy treats for Santa so that he LOOKS like Santa, nice and plump !!! Things seem to be on schedule but all is hustle bustle now !!

All the mom elves are taking their children back-to-school shopping (they're "home-schooled" by Mrs. Claus) for new pointy toed shoes with little jingle bells on them...

It is full on time at the workshop, everything is going at 100% all the time from now until a week before Christmas. Candy Canes are being made and packaged for December,with Santa sneaking a couple every now and then. Santa toyed with the idea to give the naughtiest kid of all the fruit cake that has been in the workshop for the last 35 years that nobody will touch, but rethought it after figuring it would be too cruel. So coal wins again.
