What happened today? Not much? A Lot? Some days are both. Today we're taking break from 'formal' educating. (Yeah, I know, that happens a lot around here!) 

We've got an Art & Civics day planned for tomorrow, so we're spending today at home, doing 'stuff.'
Emily has been reading some Agatha Christie, Arlene is making gingerbread, we all watched some Art History DVD's.

As much as I want our girls to know how to operate in a classroom/ deadline/ structured setting, I feel it is important to have some down days. Today is one of those days. It's also a good time to get caught up on the laundry and bake some bread!

Christmas is coming, and in an effort to remind ourselves and others that the celebration is all about Jesus, we're plotting some fun things for Thursday. We'll be spreading some Joy!

So enjoy your day, whether it is jam-packed full, or looks more like molasses in winter, knowing that your kids need YOU more than any math assignment. (If that math page is due tomorrow, maybe you can motivate them to get it done with some post-homework cookie-making!)

Have a wonderful week!
