We have been having a fun month counting down the days though. All very exciting.
Landon learned about Northern Lights and made a project displaying how they worked. William read a really cool book all about Google and then made a poster report to share with us.
Since September the two little ones have had an art class with their friends. We started at the library and then have decided to move here. It makes life easier when they are done. More space and time to play afterwards. Also the big boys can then hang out with their friends, the siblings of the littles. It has been a lot of fun and Harkin and Issabelle so look forward to it.
Our days can be tough sometimes but the benefits and joy we get from being able to share in their learning makes it all worth it. I love how so much of their learning is self directed. It makes it much more enjoyable for them and interesting too.
We have had a good fall of studies which is making me feel good and this month of December we may take a bit of a break and do a bit more of the projects and fun.
Then we got spiffed up and went out to a buffet dinner. We tried something new which was fun but will most likely go back to cooking next year. We came home and watched a family movie. Harkin picked it out. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. He had just recently read the book and I had mentioned there was a movie. He thought it was a good one to watch on Thanksgiving since it was all about food and Thanksgiving is a feast.
It was a laid back day. William said the next day that it was one of his best holidays recently. Everyone was happy and calm all day. We tried to keep that atmosphere up all through the weekend. Relaxing days at home, just hanging out with Daddy, playing games and puzzling!
