It's time for us to wind down with homeschooling and start to focus on what lies ahead in the next few weeks. The girls are antsy and know that a break from school is close at hand. The feast of St. Nicholas always seems to give them the heads up that we'll be slowing down until after the first of the year.
Katherine has finished up a math workbook, so we'll not start a new one until after the first of the year. From now until after our break we will focus on reading and spirituality. These two areas we try to never lay aside.
We will decide on crafts to make for our loved ones and start working on those this week. We'll try to focus more intently on the Lord over the next few weeks-and what His birth means for us. We'll meditate on our blessings, those blessings we love and those that have challenged us, and we'll give thanks for them all. We'll try to be quiet and not get caught up in the insanity of the world at this time.
A blessed preparation for the coming of our Lord to you all!
