Last year, with one child in public school and one child in homeschool, both kids had different things going on that the other wished they could participate in. Things as big as field trips or as little as the 100th day of school. With that in mind, I had planned on celebrating our halfway point (last post) and our 100th day of school, which happened to be today. It's raining right now, and after a meeting I had this morning, we decided to kick off our celebration by ordering pizza for lunch when we got home. My kids said it was the best pizza EVER!
Then for dinner, since we're such carnivores, we decided to treat ourselves to Ruth's Chris Steak House. We all wanted a good steak and this particular location had just opened up very close to us, so we went for it. It was a nice (pricey) dinner, but the kids felt really special and frankly, I needed something special too.
This also marks our 20th week of school. Last week was our last meeting for Classical Conversations before the Christmas break. Before bidding farewell to our community until after the New Year, we had a joyous time at the annual Family Christmas party. All the kids showed off their knowledge of our history timeline and each class played a tune on their tin whistles. My class played part of Jingle Bells. They did a wonderful job. All the kids did!
That's about it for now. Can you tell I'm ready for our break to begin? This is our last week of homeschooling until everything, (CC plus our homeschooling schedule) begins again after the New Year. I. Am. So. Ready.
So, have yourselves a merry little Christmas and may you ring in the New Year surrounded by love, food and merriment and may blessings be poured out upon you and yours!
