Our school week...

This week, we've had some unusually cold and icy weather. Public & private schools were even closed for three days! Being the mean, homeschool mom that I am ;-) we continued to do school but made it a little more fun with some extra crafts and we even did school in our pj's most of the week!

Here's where we did our lessons all week - in my bedroom in front of our little fireplace to keep us warm!

The girls created "Sand Art" and made lots of other Christmas presents to give away.

We had lunch and a playdate with friends. What lovely outfits the girls are wearing and yes, "A" raided the make-up drawer.

We dressed up and sang Christmas carols - believe it or not, this is not our "homeschool uniform". :-)

We built things with cards...

And played dominoes...

All in all, it was a relaxing week. It made us slow down and enjoy life at home, which doesn't happen as often as it should!

Love these pictures - my favorite home school memories are the nice days when mom let us do school outside and cold days when we did a lot of the things you and your girls did. Good times :)
