We’ve been super busy around here with all of the holiday activities going on. There has been a ton of holiday baking as well as holiday parties and gatherings with friends and family. The girls are giddy for Christmas. Tonight was their Christmas program at church. Mimi and Baby chose to be angels. Bubba was asked to be one of the 3 Wise Women. It was a beautiful evening with the dim lights and all of the children dressed up and excited.

In school we have continued on with geology. We did some easy experiments using Bubba’s rock collection.

We’ve also started to talk about next year. She is thinking about going back to public school. She’s very divided on the issue, though. So, I’m going to work hard on the areas that I feel she’s not as strong in so that she can be ready to re-inter the school in the fall if that’s what she decides. I don’t love the idea and would be happy to keep homeschooling her forever. But, we’ve always said that this was a choice for the kids after first grade. We’ll see what she ends up deciding for certain as it changes hourly.

This coming week will be our final week before taking a holiday break. We’re all looking forward to sleeping in and spending time with our extended families and friends.

My daughter wants to attend our shiny new middle school for the third grade-problem is she is already working at third grade level and she is technically in “first grade”. So I am contemplating just doing lots of hands on stuff for a year to hold her at third grade skill level but my hubs isn’t too keen on that idea- for obvious reasons. We’ll see how it goes. My youngest is dead set on going to public kindergarten and I think it would be a good choice for her- as she struggles to do anything by herself- she always needs to interact with others. Hope this part of your journey works out for you!
