I've gotten to be a very bad blogger these last two weeks, haven't I?! tsk, tsk
And to think some days I would blog every day. sheesh
Reason #1: I have upped the anty in our schooling "regimen" (adding more art/craft projects, memorization, first language lessons and spelling: and still need to do a better job with SOTW)
Reason #2: It's almost Christmas
Reason #3: Lots of entertaining and company
Reason #4: It's almost CHRISTMAS
Reason #5: Well, that about does it, I think.
Not that there aren't LOTS of things to blog ABOUT---just that those things are being enjoyed in real time just long enough to savor and move on to the next bit of wonderfulness....with no time (presently) to record it all.
And that's okay.
I have a whole SLEW of Homemade Christmas Gifts (yes, I capitalized those words on purpose, thankyouverymuch) to show you~and more Christmasy pictures to share... (all of which will come VERY soon!!!) but before I do, pardon me while I get caught up on some little bits of life from the past few weeks too sweet to forget.
A girl flies to dreamland with her lunchchair as the rocketship:
A Father gets (and gives) some lovin' :
A Little Miss spies an amazing (and $300.00) wooden play store in a catalog (the ONLY toy catalog I let my kiddos peruse: Magic Cabin and HearthSong) and copies it as best she can (free):
A family stands placidly while a boy gets decapitated:(the guy in gold and my very own man are twins, though you wouldn't be able to tell because of the beard. Otherwise, the resemblence is remarkable.)
Children break bread, pour water (not turned into wine), gather green construction paper money and light candles in worship one Sabbath evening and we all sing and pray:
A girl hasn't learned just yet about male/female roles in the church. :-)
A boy is ready to conclude the impromptu service prematurely and wrecks havoc on this soul:
A grin melts my heart:
