A few updates:
- My "simplify life" is moving along. We have made the conclusion, however, that we have quickly outgrown our current house and have begun the process of getting our home ready to go on the market. This means packing, cleaning, and repairing. We are just getting started and I'm afraid of the road ahead. With lots of prayer and faith, however, I know that we will be able to pull through this time.
- Homeschooling is still going. We took a few days here and there for the holidays, but are working hard to stay on task. Favorite subjects around here are history, nature, and religion. History Odyssey is going great and I love that we are reading A Child's History of the World along with SOTW. For nature, we are loving doing the Handbook of Nature Study, but things have slowed down since the weather has gotten colder. Finally, we absolutely love doing religion using Mother of Divine Grace's syllabus. The saint book is a big hit!
- Christmas went wonderful and was spent with just us. We were still able to enjoy it, even though family was far away for the first time in many years. Celebrating the birth of our Lord will always be a joyous event!!
