The past few days our advent activities have found us cutting gingerbread men, stamping fabric for gift bags, a few more lights and decorations (the sweet "Tammi's Angel's" print can be found at Fiddlehead Artisan Supply in Belfast) our boy's first concert performance ever!, and our annual lantern walk across the bog bridge and through our little woods path, bringing a bit of light to these dark days.
Fortunately the weekend also allowed for a much needed 5 mile run on a beautiful, sunny morning; breakfast with some of my favorite women (without our children!) and a relaxing day at home with Rob (returned from a trip away) and all of us well again. Finally.
Today we're enjoying that homeschooling requires no travel on an icy morning like this one, and planning to gather on the couch for reading, hot chocolate, some quiet work time on math and such, a bit of crafting to be sure, and our next activity (involving prizes to be awarded in town. If you've got a fabulous light display, and you live near us, you may be one of the lucky recipients! Stay tuned).
