The Events Leading Up To Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!  We had a great week :)

We had to really cram at the beginning of the week so we I could fully enjoy the Friday after Thanksgiving.  Here's what we did:


An at home day!  Oh my goodness, I love at home days :)  The girls did their 3 R's in the morning.  We were supposed to do art, but we really had to finish up our geography unit.  Skipping art seems to have become a habit.  That needs to change when we start back up next week ;)  In the afternoon the girls did geography.


Clearly, this cat loves playing dress up.

The girls did a tiny bit of school in the morning (math for Millie and reading for Elise) before heading out to piano lessons.  We're meeting up early now so we don't have to leave playgroup in a hurry in the future.  Millie is working on a really cute Christmas song called "Santa in the Snow."  Afterwards, we went to playgroup, which just happened to be at a big, old Victorian house.  There were cats there.  My girls were in heaven.


Geography, geography, and more geography.  Blah.  We crammed the rest of our unit study in so we could enjoy the rest of the day.  We finally finished, with just enough time for regular lessons.  I'm so glad to be done with the study of US geography.  Seriously.  We took a brain break mid way through the day, by taking the train down to the farmers market to get some squash.  It was fun to see the Christmas trees arriving!

The Rest of the Week:

Thanksgiving, family, great food, a trip to the Mall of America on Black Friday (bad idea!!)...  We have so much to be thankful for!
