The last day of school before Christmas break was Party Day for Micah's class. Stacy was able to attend again! He missed Every special event last year due to work, this year he has been able to make it to 2 so far. The first thing that the kids did was a Nativity wreath. It looks really cool, but had probably 50+ pieces, and was more of a parent craft than a child's. After the wreath was finished the kids heard a Christmas book, then they did a book swap and ate lunch. After lunch they decorated sugar cookies and made candy canes out of pipe cleaners and beads.
I was really worried about what we would do during this extra long break from school. If it were just Micah, we could easily fill our time.... but adding Patton to he mix, makes me think twice about "just runing to Target." So far the break has flown by though. Last Monday we had lunch with Sarah and baby Noah, Tuesday we watched Hannah, Wednesday we finished our shopping. Thursday we baked/ dipped things for Christmas. Friday was Christmas Eve at Pa-paws, Saturday was Christmas. Sunday was a Snow day. We have even enjoyed spending time with Stacy, as he has some time off.
