It's been a heck of month here at The Joys of Home Educating. Lots of sickness 8( (still can't shake the head cold) However, we were able to fit some fun stuff in this week!
Right after Thanksgiving I decorate for Christmas! This year, I am going with the LESS is MORE Concept. I only put out about 1/2 of the decorations that I usually do. Nativities are a MUST. We have several kinds. The girls have the Little People Nativity in their room. This one shown was a gift from my mother a few years ago. I love it!
One of the other traditions we have is getting out our seasonal books. This year was no exception. I am in love with the writings of Christmas and Winter. Each night we read at least 2 of them. They never seem to get old!
We had a quick visit with Santa (no one wanted to sit but Z gave a High Five)
Dropped off our donations for Toys. We were able to find a Mailbox at the Santa location in the mail to drop off our Letters to Santa. Found a Salvation Army kettle to drop our lose change off too! We are starting our Christmas Around the world unit on Monday! Looking forward to that!
Join myself, Mary and others over at Homegrown Learners for College Friday!
Have a Blessed Weekend!
