Only 2 weeks until Thanksgiving! Where has the time gone?
I love homeschooling during the holidays! We can take an extra day off (which we are) and we are taking 3 weeks off for Christmas! Hooray! We will also have a Thanksgiving party AND a Christmas party for "school". I am so excited!! We are using the time before Christmas to make presents and get things ready for everyone.
In my opinion, these are the things the kids will remember most - the fun memories we make together. These are the things that are important - spending time together.
They may never use the Geometry or Algebra they learn, but they will always look back on these memories fondly. Best of all, I am not having to hear about how they celebrated Christmas in school. I will be a part of the celebration.
And I love that. :o)
