Gingerbread houses!!

Today we begin our month of studying Christmas!! I bought the book The ADVENTure of Christmas by Lisa Whelchel to immerse ourself in Christmas for the month of December. I want to have a break from the day to day and learn alot about a subject much overlooked, the origins of Christmas along with its meanings. History, Social studies, Arts & Humanities, and Bible all rolled into one. Of course we will maintain our math lessons as well.

This afternoon we kick off with gingerbread houses. I can't wait!! This is actually a homeschool group activity but it definitely kicks things off in a good way. Hallelujah, praise Jehovah, I am finally excited about school again.

I finished my shopping too, with the exception of my Dad who is impossible to shop for. Not even an idea. Goals still keep me on track even if I miss the target a little, I am still doing better than if I had not set the goal.
