In the morning devotionals in December I believe we will do Anne Voskamp's Jesse Tree from her site that you can get to here. I also ran across a site for advent wreath that you could could use by clicking the button below.
Also, we usually learn hymns after Bible time in the morning so of course we will be learning and singing great Christmas hymns in December.
This weekend the little ones and I are going to make a countdown to Christmas craft that I got from Sheri Graham's site "Homeschool Freebie of the Day." You can see this craft by clicking here.
We will also work on our speaking or presentation skills by the children taking turns each day reading John Piper's advent book which you can find for yourself here.
We will also do lots of crafts and baking along with school this month. We usually make lots of gifts in jars to give away to guests and family. Praise found a great pinterest idea that I cannot post in case my family reads this and knows what we are up to for simple family gifts that we want to make. On my calendar today, I plan to write in days to make goodies for our neighbors, our post office workers, and the fire/police station that is less than a mile away. Otherwise, I may just travel that road of good intentions.
So, that's what things are looking like in the Tordoff home. My Aunt Joan, Fran & Mike left back home the beginning of the week after staying a few days to help the children out with the painting projects around the house, and meals while I was recovering. Thanks again for all the prayers and support. Looking forward to all the Lord has for us this coming season. May we all live expectant lives seeking our Savior Jesus, and that our excitement for the things of God reaches far past the Christmas season because He is the God of every season, day, and moment.
"To prepare our hearts for Christmas,
we must cultivate the spirit of expectancy."
