Last week I shared what we wanted to get done so that we could have some extra time off for Christmas.
We accomplished everything.
By Wednesday we had completed every single lesson, Josh had finished his Journals, and we had attended the last of the Live Lessons.
It's a great feeling to get a break.
We also were able to enjoy a great field trip on Friday. (Pictures to come later)
We've had some fun celebrating Nate this past week.
I'll share some photos of our fun in the coming weeks but, today is his actual birthday!
The boys and I are doing a few things that are our traditions as we celebrate this very special 6 year old.
This year, I took a break from doing too much. It's been nice to sit back and listen instead of always participating in everything.
I let the boys decorate the house and the trees this year and have "let it go" even though I have Christmas decorations in weird places and trees with lots of bare spots.
The gifts are almost all wrapped.
I haven't done any baking as of yet but do plan to do a little on Wednesday . .. very little.
So, in the coming weeks, I have lots of photos to share and events to write about.
I might start trying out some new recipes again ;-)
It's time to write about Theme Words and Goals.
And I'm ready to work on becoming more of a minimalist - or at least figure out how to live with less stuff and more joy!
