I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. We sure did. It was filled with the kind of sparkle that I want it to be for my children. I hope yours was too!
The day after Christmas the flu hit us! We are under quarantine here until further notice and all New Years Eve plans with my unlinkable best friend and family are not happening. This is a disappointment, but we would much rather ring in the new year not "blessing" someone else with our sickness, right? :+) I honestly feel thankful that we are as recovered as we are. It is a nasty bug and I am grateful for the health I know is right around the corner.
It is times like these that I start thinking - oh, I miss doing school! I miss reading Mystery of History together, I miss reading Exploring Creation with Zoology 2, I even miss doing math! I think I just miss learning. I hope that we are well enough to begin again next week. It would be so fantastic to get back to business. :+)
I love the Christmas holidays - I love almost everything about them. I love the focus on the advent of our Savior. I love knowing every year that He came. It is a beautiful thing to celebrate. But. I am ready for regular life again. I am ready to read books together on the couch. I am ready to learn together. I am ready to walk our neighborhood and enjoy our winter days. I am ready for the next season.
And you? :+)
