Reflections on Christmas & New Year

We have been having such a nice time this season. We have read lots and lots of Tomie dePaola books in preparation for Christmas, and following up with lots of crafts. Our educational plan has sort of shifted into holiday mode, which has been good.

Christmas was very blessed with my dad here. The girls had a wonderful day!
They both got American Girl doll clothes and beds. Just what they told Santa about. So perfect.
We spent about 4 days here in the rain, cooking and making merry.

I have had lots of relaxing time over the holidays to evaluate or plans for the new year. I am looking forward to our work starting with the beads. They are just beautiful.
And we both have been having so much fun with her globe that we have sort of dove into geography up a bit more. We will continue with First Language Lessons, and Story of the World, and trying to mix in the Montessori wherever I can.
