Our Day

We're part of a home schooling group. Today we had our Christmas Party. There's just 3 families who participate, but we really enjoy our weekly get together's at the library. Over the summer a lot of the other families who Home School moved, so hopefully in the next few months more will come!

We did a Secret Santa gift exchange among the kids. It worked out well since we all bring 2 of our children (one family has 6 children, 1 is about to graduate college over Christmas break). The kids all liked their gifts and had fun! We had a light lunch that my friend Michelle brought. I made dessert: buckeyes, choc. chip cookies with and without nuts, and oat meal chip cookies again with and without nuts. Lunch was great and the kids had a great time!!! Here's some pictures of the kids opening the gifts....

We had our homeschool group Christmas party yesterday!  We have over 30 families involved and we went to a skating rink. Lots of kids.  We are too big to meet weekly and I think we should meet once a month but we don't really.
Glad it was fun!

Great pics Christy!  I love how the one little girl is so much more interested in what your son is getting than her own gift!  Linda

I love the look on their faces!  It looks like they all had fun which is great.  We'll be having our homeschool Christmas park day next week- won't be exchanging gifts, but the kids will al be making decorations and gingerbread houses!  Don't you just love homeschooling?!  I do even when it's hard!  Have a Blessed rest of the week!  Carolyn
