Weekly Photo Collage :: 12/7/2012 Poems & Latin

Recently the girls have been obsessed with watching High School Musical on Netflix.  I have gotten lots of hand me downs from my sister's girls and had remembered seeing High School Musical pajamas somewhere in the piles.  When I came across the night shirt and gave them to Leah, she acted like she won a million dollars!  It was really cute.  She made her own jelly sandwich the other day and was pretty proud of herself.

Slowly the Christmas decorations are coming out.  I bought a new Santa this year, he's in charge of the Advent and Christmas books.

For the first time I had help with Christmas cards.  Jacob was eager to help with stamping our return address and placing stamps on the cards, we got done in record time!

There is always a lot to do, so sometimes that means multi-tasking.  Here I'm doing my Advent reading on the treadmill. Now, I can't run and read, but walking is usually okay.

Favorite Poems Old and New is one of my favorite resources. We are having fun learning a couple of new finger plays for the season, as well as a couple of new poems from the book.  This books seems to have a little bit of everything!

This week we started conjugating verbs in Latin.  So far I think the kids have a good grasp of how and what to do.  I broke out the colored chalk and the chalkboard - old school style!

Nutcracker Unit Study - we're going to see the Nutcracker this weekend, so we will be referencing this study over the next couple of weeks.  Thanks Mary, for creating a fun resource!

I'm getting ready to head to BEECH Retreat next month {next month!}, and I ordered some business cards and a cute journal.  I'm definitely going to need that journal to jot down all the great things I'm going to learn over the weekend.

Happenings on the blog this week:

10 Day "Healthier You" Challenge - an easy and painless way to shed a few holiday pounds.

Road Trip Tips - We're going to be on the road at the end of the month, so I was inspired to get some tips down on paper.

Finally, if you only have a moment to read one blog post this week, please make it this one!

Have a great weekend!

Look how ready you are for BEECH. I need to get new business cards because mine are a bit outdated! Where did you get yours? Did you design them yourself?

I was wondering the same thing, they're so cute! I love it when I find a "treasure" in hand me downs :)

You can't go wrong with a week that has poetry and Latin in it. Just toss with a little Christmas and it is perfect!

Good for you, Advent reading on the treadmill...awesome! I remember feeling so grateful when I had older kids eager and willing to help with the Chirsmtas cards...Just that little task of stuffing and licking is so helpful. It really does take the load off. I love our Favorite Poems book...haven't pulled it out for awhile. Thanks for you prompting! Fun to see other homes and their Christmas decor:) Happy 2nd week of Advent!

Advent reading on the treadmill...way to go! Little Leah looks so cute in that night gown! I remember when my older girls first watched High School Musical. Oh my! They LOVED it :) What a fund stage! P.S. Did I mention your Christmas card arrived and it is great! I still haven't printed mine off yet...yikes!
