A Christmas Star

This will be our last week to participate in the Christmas Book and Activity a Day challenge hosted by Shannon at Welcome to our Wonderland. In fact, tomorrow will be our last official day. We finished school for the Christmas break today and plan to spend the rest of the week making Christmas decorations for our Old Fashioned Christmas. We will then be off for the following two weeks spending some time with family, enjoying some downtime at home and celebrating Eli's 7th birthday.

Yesterday we read A Christmas Star written by Linda Oatman High and illustrated by Ronald Himler.

During the Great Depression, a holiday miracle reminds all of the true meaning of Christmas.
As we were already making Salt Dough ornaments for our tree, Brynne started out by making some stars. She rolled the dough and cut them herself. She will also be painting them.

We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
