A Week In The Life Of Unschoolers/ Letting Go Of Perfection

Yay, I can finally write a post where nothing, that I know of at least, went wrong.

This week was all about finding normal, whatever that means. Oh so many things to catch up on. Let’s see there is Christmas baking and Christmas card making and Christmas ornaments to make and ……. Have you ever had so much to do that you didn’t even know where to start? Yeah well that was me this week.

I mean your drinking your morning cup of tea (or coffee) while catching up on your favorite blogs and you see pictures of all the wonderful crafting and decorating taking place then before you know it your head begins to sink down a little bit more while thoughts of everything you didn’t get accomplished starts to fill your head. Talk about a Christmas joy kill. Wait, before I head down this road of self-pity let me change tactics a bit. How about focusing on what we *did* accomplish this week instead.

Okay so I don’t have a post filled with beautiful holiday crafting. What I do have is a post about a family spending lots of time with one another doing things that make each of us very happy. After all isn’t that what the holidays are about?

First let us begin by pulling The Delilah show up on the computer, the girls and I love to listen to her during Christmas, and bringing on the game playing. We played games of Toss Up, The Tea Party game, Animal Rummy, and Slamwich. Papa and I had a Blink tournament where I am now the reigning champ (thunderous applause playing in the background).

There were awesome Chinese almond cookies, these are way to dangerous to keep around for my sake.

Miss Sky found a couple of documentaries on Netflix we checked out. One being Dragon’s World Fantasy Made Real, and we are still watching episodes of the History Channels television show MonsterQuest.

There was a question and answer session with Little Sis

and pattern block play.

Both girls played at Animal Jam this week decorating their dens for Christmas. This weeks video game of choice was Ice age 2 and we have been enjoying more episodes of Ruby Gloom together

which carried on into their play.

And of course there are family traditions that Christmas¬† just wouldn’t be the same without :).

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

    Perfection is over-rated! Much more important to spend time with your family doing things you love than things you think you ought to be doing just ’cause everyone else is! I like your days anyway! Merry Christmas.
