Weekly Wrap Up - December!


It seems like weeks since I have been "here"...well really has been.  After my hand surgery (which went fine and stitches just came out - thanks for well wishes and prayers) I was not able to type real well and the blog was on a little hiatus...

We are back in full swing now and going strong! 


Last weekend:

  • Christmas celebration with the cousins
  • Started some house decorating (most is still in storage)
  • Molly doll was helping me out




We got out a lot this week:

  • Hot cocoa and some sweets in between errands
  • Toys for Tots drop off
  • Food pantry drop off
  • Two different stores for Sammie Claus - helping ring the bell and bringing in the people to donate!



We started our Christmas Around the World unit. 
Each school day - a new country!  We are so enjoying it!
I made up these "suitcases" and gathered everything from around blogland (freebies) to put together the units. You can check out my pinterest board for all the freebies! HERE


It's been a great reading week with a ton of themed books and of course our Children's Bible stories. 

What is not pictured that took up our time this week:

  • Martial Arts class
  • Trampoline Class
  • Doctor Appt.
  • Night time bible study at church for Zachary


TONIGHT: Town tree lighting and Christmas Caroling over at the nursing home 

This weekend:  Getting our tree!  Date night birthday party for a friend and a Gingerbread house decorating party! 


I pray this season of Advent finds you all well and counting your blessings!

Christmas Around the World-- what a good idea. I love the idea of visiting a new country each day. Definitely going to start planning a unit like that for next year!

I love the idea of a Christmas around the World unit - what a fun way to celebrate the season and homeschool at the same time!
