Some great library finds

We went to the library today, and I found four picture books that we'll be using for religion (we don't do a formal curriculum).

Waiting for Christmas: A Story about the Advent Calendar by Kathleen Long Bostrom
The Lady of Guadalupe by Tomie De Paola
Mary: The Mother of Jesus by De Paola (I'm planning on using this for the Immaculate Conception)
The Legend of St. Nicholas by Demi

We have the books for four weeks so we'll have the books through all the proper feast days and most of Advent. There's so much that we could do in connection with these books, we'll see if we actually get to do any of it. : ) Just reading them over and over will be great.

From the makers of Kenya

Brazil is our new favorite Weebls cartoon.

I thought of something else

Rosie likes to eat crayons.

You probably wonder how we're doing

but I haven't had the time or mental energy to post. I have the time now, but I can't think of anything to write! I've been sick, the kids are doing fine and they keep growing up. The second pic here was taken by Pauly, evidently, which is why it is so blurry.

Everyone wants to participate when we get out the Math-U-See blocks.
