Homeschooling and Life: Nov. 19-24, 2012

We had another good week and a nice Thanksgiving. We just spent a relaxed Thanksgiving day at home with just "us," which was very peaceful. We had a delicious meal, and then we decorated for Christmas. The only thing missing was my oldest son and his wife. They are in Hawaii, where he is currently stationed. This will mark the third year in a row that he hasn't been home for the holidays. It is one of the sacrifices that military families make. I am so proud of him, but sometimes it is so hard to be apart! That being said, however, it is important to focus on our many blessings. Here are just a few:

Bug and I enjoyed several great discussions as part of his Narnia unit study, Further Up and Further In. I am so glad we found this study. It is really wonderful!

Snapped this shot on a nature walk...can you spot the yellow butterfly?

After Thanksgiving meal nap...does it get any sweeter than this? Daddy and Baby Girl :)
