Winding Down and Gearing Up

Our fall activities are winding down but the holidays are just gearing up. Nice how that works, huh? The kids have been done with soccer for about a month. Yesterday was the last fall bowling league day. There is no HP Club meeting in December but there will be the Yule Ball. So for now we just continue with our days and start working on the holidays.

Morgan has let us know that she finds our science program lacking in excitement, challenge, etc. She's bored and is totally not enjoying...thus her reason for balking at it. We've all talked and I'm hoping she'll let us know these things earlier instead of just giving us grief about doing the work and explaining WHY. Alex and I enjoy it so we will continue working with it. I've been asking around and searching for something to work with Morgan. In the meantime she's going to be doing some reading and such for science.

On Tuesday, Kali and Tux go in for their spaying and neutering...poor babes. Tux will get to come home at the end of the day and Kali will get to come home on Wednesday morning. As of Wednesday Corey will be on vacation until Dec 3rd. He's been on call this week so we will be ready for it. We are having Thanksgiving at my brother's house this year and Corey's brother, Shawn, will be joining us. He is stationed at Fort Campbell, KY right now (for a year). After Thanksgiving we will start working on our holiday baking. Corey is happy to be able to join in this year since last year the kids and I did it all during the week days and Corey was working. He put his foot down this year since he'll be on vacation. LOL!

We've joined a homeschooling book club and are reading our way through The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke. We are enjoying it and are looking forward to discussing it with the group. We've also discovered an indoor bounce center that the kids love. They have these huge inflatable bouncers inside and the kids can just go crazy. Fun on a rainy day!
