We celebrated Hanukkah and it went very well! The girls LOVED their gifts and the crafts we did each night. Nathan liked his Christmas gifts. The train is a HUGE hit here!
Play Doh. Oh the world of Play Doh. I can see how many parents dont want to give it, but its also a neat experience to see what they do without direction. Oh how these "un-socialized, weird, non-creative kids" make it work, ill never know. (insert rolled eyes). The girls make cakes, pizza, cookies, people and have FUN! The dogs have fun eating it (yuck!) and i have not so much fun cleaning it up.
Also at yet another Goodwill adventure, i found another beanbag chair!!!
Now for the less exciting things. I realize Homeschooling is a rarity, trust me its true. Well I can hear the walls that talk and my neighbors to boot. I heard my neighbors (in the crazy building i live in) say theres no way we homeschool year round and that we have to be breaking a law by not telling anyone and our kids are not disciplined and in no way as smart as we make them out to be....well i can assure you I have done the law searching for homeschooling in Ohio (thanks HSLDA) and Candice is really 5 and has been testing (using online tests) in the 1st grade level.
Theres also talk of us getting a house, which of course will HAVE to have a room for school! A big, huge, room for school.
