Abominable And The Traditional Priest

I am working on a top 10 list of Christmas movies for you and wanted to share this memory.

During Epiphany, our parish priest and three seminarians traveled over 200 miles to bless our home for several years.

One time after the blessing, Father said, "I saw something upstairs. Would you mind if I went and got it to show to the seminarians?"

I thought it must be something pious he found in one of the children's bedrooms. Boy, was I wrong!

He brought down a two foot indoor/outdoor light up Abominable from Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

It was great! He loved it because it reminded him of his childhood and he wanted to share the joy it brought him with the other men. The following year we sent him a Christmas card with Abominable on it.

I bet you can guess one of the movies that made my list. ;)

Homeschooling Fun!

We had a great school day yesterday! We read parables and the pictures the elementary and middle schoolers drew are on the fridge.

I made crafts for Thanksgiving with the preschoolers. And the elementary and middle schoolers made some complicated and rewarding mini books for zoology.

Sometimes it is grueling just getting the basics done. Getting markers, glue and scissors involved in our homeschool day was awesome!

Apologia Zoology 2 is our science curriculum. I bought the entire kit. I'm usually frugal but having it all on hand was well worth the price.

I printed cute turkeys off Crayola.com's site. You can find them under free coloring pages>new coloring pages. I wish you success today in your homeschool.
