(My favorite Christmas decoration. My jewelry tree that my parents made me)
I just haven't felt like blogging much lately. Life has gotten in the way. I'm not going to lie to you, it's been tough.
(My almond biscotti is my Christmas gift to our parents)
(Our tree full of firefighter ornaments. You wouldn't believe how many firemen Santas there are!)
(Steve's Dad putting the final ornament on our Advent Tree)
(Last year, Lily had fun crawling all over the presents)
Homeschooling has been going good. Andrew is starting to put some words together on his own and we have now started the Super Silent E. Teaching reading is not one of my favorite things to do. I am so Type A and impatient. I have to really force myself to slow down and wait for him. I love teaching my children science, history and Bible though.
Jessica just finished her third grade grammar book and is headed into fourth! I am going to work more on writing skills and typing with her, especially since she is starting to email now.
The rest are just plugging along. Attitudes have been much better. We are all looking forward to Christmas break!
(Diana is enjoying her Grandchildren at two Christmas's ago. Such a blessing to have family come and celebrate with us!)
(This is three winters ago, when Jacob was a baby)
Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
