The Week Leading Up To Christmas

This was a really light week.  In fact, I almost declared it "Christmas Break - Week 1."  I didn't though, because we had some loose ends to tie up before break.

Here is what we did in academics:

  • Elise, my girl who doesn't ever want to learn to read, actually completed 3 lessons in one day, and 2 lessons another day in All About Reading.  Her proficiency is improving greatly.  Shh, don't tell her!  ;)
  • Millie passed the "Bridge" that she'd attempted to pass 6 times in Life of Fred.  Improper fractions appear to be a struggle for her.  I whipped out the manipulatives from her old Saxon Math days, and did a little visual demonstration for her.  I think she gets it now.  Woo hoo!
We had a LOT of fun doing other (Christmas-y) things this week.  Here's what we did:

Christmas program at church.  

Made pomander balls at the farm, with Grandma

Our favorite lap dog, Lady.

Macys display with friends

Annual bell ringing 

Cutest elf
Merry Christmas from our home to yours!!
