Today we made a Thankful Tree. Each person had their hand traced and cut out. These became our leaves. I asked each person something they were thankful for and wrote it on their leaf. It turned out really cute! We all have so much to be thankful for!

As I shared last week, I'm reading
Such as: "Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire." W.B. Yates
I don't think I'm a radical Unschooler but, I am definitely drawn to pursuing my children's interests and fostering a love of learning. I think I'm more like the families toward the end of the book who are a combination of one or more methods.
I've got books ordered from the library and am waiting on Homeschooling With Gentleness to come in the mail. I look forward to see where God is taking us with all of this.
My honey will have knee surgery on Tuesday. Please offer a little prayer for his speedy recovery.
We are looking forward to having Granny and Papa, my honey's parents, to stay with us for Thanksgiving. The girls and I will bake apple and pumpkin pies to go along with our turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, macaroni and cheese (for Buck), corn casserole, green beans and crescent rolls.
We will also meet with some homeschooling friends for Little Flowers this week. This is great for Buck since he has some good "boy" play time then too. Our Little Flowers group is small and sweet and the big girls enjoying helping out. We also have group time where everyone comes together for recitations. This can be anything from poetry to Latin to Classically Catholic Memory work.
I hope you all have a very blessed Thanksgiving week!
Don't forget to pick up your Advent candles this week :)
