Homeschool and Life: First half of Dec. 2012

Before I start this blog post, I first want to say that my prayers and my heartfelt sympathy go out to the families and others who lost precious loved ones in Friday's tragedy. May God comfort them and give them peace as only He can.

December is truly a whirlwind month for us! In addition to celebrating Christmas, we also have hubby's and my wedding anniversary, Baby Girl's Forever Family Day, and Doodles' birthday. Here are a few snapshots of our life lately:

Doodles reads a book about to learn about circumference and pi: Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi

Doodles, while reading Mission to Cathay in Sonlight Core F, became interested in learning more about Chinese festivals, so she did some online research.
