I'm feeling behind. No, not because we've hardly done any "school" for the past two weeks. I am pretty good with substituting Christmas plays, Scouting events, family time, baking, games, and a special "Journey to Japan" 5-day class for regular bookwork.
I'm feeling behind because it seems that just about every blog I read tells of, usually in pictures, the Christmas decorating that is going on in your homes. I am not worthy.
Yesterday we put up our Dickens village. Today I bought a poinsettia.
And now I've changed my blog for Christmas. See my best Christmas present ever beneath the tree? That's my Duncan, born on Christmas Day in 2000.
I'm heading out in a few minutes for a weekend full of The Christmas Carol musical, in which Laurel is a dancer in the Fezziwig's ball scene. Next week, the decorations come out for real.
