Winter Homeschooling

 The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

 Wet gloopy stuff coming from the sky. Is it rain/sleet or snow?

 Perfect day for lessons by the fireplace. Homeschooling at it's best in winter.

 Maddie getting her grammar on.


 Maddie and Izzie dressed for High Tea.

 Still working on our big research paper. (Maddie.)

 Izzie doing some coding.

 Maddie building a robot.

 Introducing Star Trek Next Generation to the girls.

 Our Elf.

Snow Day

 Maddie modeling the headphones I bought them for their birthday. I thought they'd be comfortable for flying, but they haven't been that big of a hit. I think the ear pieces are hard to line up with your ears inside the fabric. They do look cute though...

 Snow on the skylight looks funny.

And then she turned 37

 A few days before my BDay we went to one of those ceramic painting places with our homeschool group. Esperanza and Izzie painting their figurines.

 Maddie painting her bunny (of course.)

 Maddie and Izzie reading in the big red chair.

 They saw it on pinterest and wanted to try it, but then they decided they didn't want cheese on their half.

 John bought me a pretty earing and necklace set for my birthday.

Decorating for Christmas

I'm so far behind on posting photos to my blog that I'm posting Christmas pictures in July. It's funny, I thought I was busy with two babies and two toddlers but that's nothing compared to homeschooling two elementary kids. I'm trying to not feel stressed out or guilty for not posting pictures. I do want to keep it up though, because one day I will get caught up. In the meantime... here's Christmas in July. (Dating it as Christmas to keep continuity up.)

 The day after Thanksgiving we pulled out the Christmas decorations. Normally I'm a Dec 1st at the earliest kind of girl, but since we were planning on going to Texas this Christmas, we wanted to have time to enjoy our decorations.

 We have a big tree and a small one, but again, since we weren't going to be here for Christmas the family voted for the small tree.

 Our Christmas Book Calendar. One a day until the 25th.

 My little bookworms.
