1)We started the week with rehearsal for the Christmas pageant.
2)She did her Classical Conversations presentation on The Nutcracker, which we saw last weekend. I had her dictate to me what she wanted to say, and I typed it just like she said it. She added bits of information (like that Drosselmeyer had an eyepatch) and a few pirouettes. :)
3)We finished The Ordinary Parents' Guide to Reading. Simple. Inexpensive. Effective. I love this book.
4)This week, our home(pre)school co-op was about Hanukkah. The little ones made menorah crafts, and had latkes and applesauce for their snack.
5)Santa Claus is building my daughter a dollhouse - a red, three-story painted lady. The instructions said to use tape to hold it together while the glue dries.
6)My My Bookhouse books arrived. Volume One was in two pieces. I think the bookseller misunderstood the meaning of "used-very good." I contacted the seller and they refunded some of my money, and we've been - carefully - reading Volume One. One evening, we read a Dutch story about a puppet named Hansworth, and another evening, we read a Norse story about a little boy trying to get his goats out of a turnip field.
8)She can play Jolly Old Saint Nicholas very well now and wants to learn Up On the Housetop.
