The one condition? No electronics. No tablets. No computers. No TV. As the month comes to a close, I'm getting a little lazy about enforcing this rule (my girls are watching Barbie: Life in the Dream House as I type). Having electronics off for the month has been great. The girls have been playing more together, doing more art, and getting creative.
Of course, even though we had "no school month," learning didn't come to an end. We had a few art lessons, took a few classes through Field Trip Friday and SciGirls, and had a few meet ups with friends.
Here's what we did this month:
|Meet the Masters: Renoir|
|A tour of the Christmas decorations at the Ramsey House|
|Gingerbread House fun at 4-H|
|Elva Kaffe: Elise was a Norwegian dancer|
|Decorating the tree!|
|A Day in the Life of an Elf display at Macys|
|SciGirls: Make up (frost bite. Brrr!)|
|Hour of Code|
|Cookie making workshop at 4-H|
|Decorating cookies at 4-H|

|Photo bombing my pretty table setting|
|My little elves on Christmas morning!|

See you in 2016!!
