Christmas Time is Almost Here

Christmas sure is a special time. With the hot chocolate, candy canes, and Christmas movies and music.

I've been making glittery pencils in Christmas colors, with a plastic cup, a paintbrush, glitter, and craft glue, with a foam band around the middle of the silver part, and rhinestones. I've also been making hair accessories - bows and barrettes in red and green.

There is nothing better than sitting in a warm place looking at Christmas lights, listening to Christmas music, especially when you've got hot chocolate and cookies to go with it.

Our dog, Cookie always shivers when she goes outside to use the bathroom.

I'm gonna go to Crystal Palace with a homeschool group soon, (Can't wait!) and Christmas shopping this weekend.

Bundle up so you don't get cold, and have an (Early) Merry Christmas!

Back to Homeschool

Week 1

So, I've started homeschooling again. I've been doing a nature journal where you go outside, pick something - any type of plant or tree - and write things about it you know, research on it if you want, draw or paint a picture of the plant or tree, it's leaves or buds. The first thing I'm researching on is mint. We have some growing in our yard.
This is a picture of my first page.

I also tried mint tea.

We have P.E. where we stretch, do a different exercise about five times around it, such as galloping, and walk around a table until the microwave timer beeps.

We have recess where we play badminton, or catch a ball, or play frisbee. (Not for very long in this heat, though)

So, overall, I like it pretty well. I'm just not really used to it yet. Wishing you all good school days!
