You were missed! It was obvious how much you keep this board going when you were gone!
Instead of summer break, we take a break from Thanksgiving till New Year. We spend the time focusing on scripture for Advent and do lots of crafts. My kids don't totally "get" the concept of the break (I just sort of did it willy nilly last year, and made it official this year). They keep asking to "do school" which is why I have so many crafts to do, just to keep them from getting bored. So far, we've made Jesse Tree ornaments, Christmas bells (from mini flower pots), an Advent Calendar, and we color a picture related to our scripture reading whenever they are looking for something else to do. I didn't realize how fast they were going to run through all of their activities. I think I only have like 3-4 activities left to do out of the supplies that I bought, so I probably need to come up with a 2-4 more ideas if anyone has any, lol! My kids are destructive when they are bored and I'm trying so hard not to let that happen!
We'll be traveling to AR to visit my family for Christmas, but otherwise, we're still doing school work. This week is all about scrubbing the house from top to bottom ... I've been neglecting housework while I've been working. UGH!
We're taking a light work break until next week. Then we take off completely until after the new year.
We already did celebrations from around the world. We started that in November and finished it pretty quickly.
We have lots of crafts to do and some service projects we've done, and will do.
I've been busy working a bit more too, expecting that to slow down here shortly and won't pick back up until about February.
Yeah .. the board almost grinds to a halt without you. Welcome back!
We don't exactly do Christmas so I am unaffected by the season but we are moving to Cambodia in March and we are working on getting rid of most of our belongings and sorting the rest into what is going and what is being stored here with family. Additionally, I've been working on a realistic plan for homeschooling for the rest of this year and all of next year. Prayers appreciated!

We've been doing a lighter version of school for the past week or so, and after tomorrow we will be finished until after new years. We've been doing some Christmas crafts, and I have lots more planned for this week.
