Is It Back to School Already?

Pin It Now! The past 3 weeks have gone by much faster than I thought they would! Rivendell Academy starts back up on Monday, and I haven't even looked at my lesson plans. I'm a bit behind on my to do list since I have been sick this week. =(

Just thought I would do a quick recap of all our Christmas fun. The kids have been very occupied with all of their new toys, much to my satisfaction!!

Here we are on Christmas Eve. It is tradition for us to eat tacos, read about the birth of Jesus Christ, sing a few Christmas songs, and then open presents from out-of-town family. We used to go light-looking as well, but this year we did that on a previous night. It made for a not-so-rushed Christmas Eve.



Shiloh and Lincoln want to "help" Daddy play the guitar.





Mullin was thrilled to open a bunch of new Harry Potter characters from The Order of the Phoenix.





Shiloh loves her new Pet Shop pal!



I love that moment on Christmas morning when all is silent and the glowing tree is surrounded by presents just waiting to be opened!



The kids know that all of those presents are from us. They know that the magical, modernized Santa is just pretend. I had planned to do a whole post on just that but didn't get around to it. Maybe next year?



Shiloh finally got the Care bear she'd been talking about all month--Grumpy!! She now has quite a collection. She loves them to pieces!



Mullin had a Star Wars Christmas. New ships, new men--he is all set to have some new battles!



Lincoln wanted all army stuff, so he is pretty excited about the jet he just opened!!

Later we went to my Mom's for a yummy Christmas brunch. Unbelievably, I forgot my camera!

Hope every one's Christmas was as wonderful as ours!!

Looks like you had a fun Christmas!

We are taking another week off from school. The in-laws are coming to visit this week - so instead of two days of school, we'll clean house and enjoy their visit.

I am excited to start school but will not do so until next week. Basketball and illnesses have kept us down, so we will get organized and start anew!
