Elisabeth has started bringing home some math problems that are challenging for me, so I usually have her wait for dad to get home so he can help her out. And I try and listen in so I can 'remember' how to work these problems as well :). I'm grateful to have a husband who can fill in where I am lacking. And who is amazing in everything else.
Annabelle had a friend over Saturday and I took this picture as she was watching, waiting for her to arrive.
This week we, one of the sticks in our calendar said, "make christmas craft". Scott made up some dough and the kids used christmas cookie cutters to cut out shapes which we then baked. These are the ornaments we painted with the Arkells, and we sent some home with them. Can you see a few of them on this tree? Stocking, star, gingerbread man and a wreath.
