Have I mentioned I love unschooling ? I love that learning happens all the time. I love that friends , homeschooling or not, are on a “school break ” and we are not.
In previous years I have always stressed around the holidays. Right now we might have been in the middle of a block with me trying to hurry to finish it. Or I would be trying to figure out how in the world I was going to fit school in around the holidays. Well no more I tell you.
This year Thanksgiving came and our learning did not even skip a beat. This time while Mama was busy in the kitchen preparing for our mighty feast the girls kept busy playing at Animal Jam and Fantage. There was baby animal video searches on youtube, Miss Sky is 65% into the video game Scooby Doo and the Night of 100 Frights with the help of youtube walkthroughs, and Little Sis has been playing around with Tux Paint .
Being inspired by Monster High Little Sis made her own cell phone and laptop.
Thanksgiving tradition in our family starts with homemade cinnamon rolls and watching The Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade on television followed by The National Dog Show (sorry Papa you are outnumbered with females in this household, but he did get to catch the Cowboys game later on :)). This always leads to the girls having an “animal” show of their own.
Black Friday was spent at the park bike riding while enjoying beautiful 60 degree weather and lots of sunshine. Small Business Saturday was spent in the garage filling a bulk order of our mangers, which we will have more listed in our Esty shop.
I received a comment from Loralee at Candy Experiments.com explaining why she thinks Pez left a foamy residue during Miss Sky’s experiment. You must check out her website, Miss Sky has many future experiments planned.
Lets see we played Uno and Animal Rummy and there was homemade carmel corn.
and last but not least let us not forget all the preparations for the next upcoming holiday.
Oh yeah life sure is good!
