Are y'all as excited about Thanksgiving as I am? Whoo-hoo! We have not taken much of a break since we started school, so the boys and I are ready for a few days of rest.
One thing we won't be taking a break from: The Light And The Glory: Did God have a plan for America? -- the classic by Peter Marshall and David Manuel. I am nearly ashamed as a veteran homeschooling mom to admit that I have never read it. Danya read it a few years ago when she was doing David Quine's Starting Points Curriculum, but I did not join her for that one. Now, Derek and I are reading it, and we LOVE it!
I picked up the Anne of Green Gables movie collection from the library and am planning to enjoy that over the break as well. Anyone an Anne Fan? I will not be putting up anything red or green (LOL) until FRIDAY--the day after Thanksgiving! I know some of you are starting early, and one of my favorite people in the world has her shopping done (as in...COMPLETELY!) by the end of October--every year!-- but to me, it is just not Christmas without some hustle and bustle, you know?
My first Thanksgiving in my own home with Rich, I decided that I was liberated, and I pulled out my own Christmas music (I opted for Elvis' Blue Christmas) and started playing it the Monday of Thanksgiving week. While no thunder clapped nor did lightning strike me down, I felt sooooo guilty that I couldn't do it! I mean, I felt baaaaddd! So, my friends, indeed, I was successfully brainwashed, and I continue to enjoy Thanksgiving--and my fall decorations-- until the clock chimes (guilt-free, I might add) around 8 o'clock Friday morning. Then, Katy, bar the door! it is officially Christmastime! :)
