Merry Christmas to all. . . .

We have had a wonderful celebration of our Savior's birth complete with a birthday cake.

We are all very tired as sleep did not come easy last night.

Abby went with a friend to a pizza parlor in town where they do face painting. She is a "Christmas Tiger" and her friend is the "Grinch"

The mess before the celebration!

We sat down in the middle of the living room floor yesterday to wrap gifts to be sent to our families. Bryan is taking the picture and yes he helped wrap. He also took them to the post office. What a sweetie.

Sunday, the girls and I went over to a friends house to make Christmas candy and cookies.

This is the lapghan I made for Bryan's mom. It is made with Sensations Rainbow Classic Yarn- Bright Multi and worked up really soft and warm. Also pictured is Bryan's new recliner.

12 blogs of Christmas

I am participating in the "12 blogs of Christmas" contest sponsored by Homeschool Estore.
Here is my contest entry for the blog "Just Some Stuff" by tnmomwith3kids

  1. How many children do you have / homeschool? We have 3 beautiful girls and homeschool them all.
  2. How long have you been homeschooling? Our oldest daughter will be 12 in February and we have been homeschooling forever (it seems).
  3. Have they always been homeschooled, or did they ever go to public/private school? They have always been homeschooled.
  4. Do you plan on homeschooling until graduation? Yes (Lord willing)
  5. Do you belong to a co-op? Yes
  6. Do you school all year long, or use some other schedule? It depends on how the year has gone. We try to school all year long taking breaks when needed.
  7. Do you use textbooks only, or do you like to supplement with other materials? We don't use a lot of textbooks. We like notebooking, lapbooking, and hands-on projects.
  8. Are field trips included in your school plans, or are they just family time? Since we try to capture 'teachable moments' anywhere, we try to include field trips in our plans.
  9. Do you and your kids do crafty stuff together for school time? Yes.
  10. Would you consider everyday household life stuff ‘home ec’? Absolutely!!!
  11. Do you have any advice for new homeschoolers? When you think you can't go on, remember that we have all been there (or are there at this moment). #1 piece of advice: Have a support system of other homeschoolers and don't be afraid to talk to them about troubles they have. Some families look like "perfect homeschooling families" on the outside but you'd be surprised to find out that they have bad days (weeks, months), too.
  12. Do you have advice for homeschoolers with little ones under foot? Include them as much as they want to be included. Give them safe things to play with while schooling. If they are having a bad day use it to show the older ones how to care for an upset little one.
