Winter has definitely arrived!

The snow has finally melted away but we are threatened with more this weekend so it's been a mad dash to the shops to finish the Christmas shopping and to try to get organised.

Academic school work has dwindled to nothing, but there is still lots of activities happening such as looking after animals in the cold weather, watching the icicles grow and then melt at certain temperatures, calculating how high up the hill to go to get a really good speed downwards on the sledge, cooking biscuits, mince pies etc, helping out at Christmas sales at church, going to carol services,visiting friends and relatives, wrapping presents and lots of work on the website.

We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a book recently ordered from here. The author is another home educator and has done lots of material to use with the book for free so I'm looking forward to snuggling up with the book very soon :o)
