December 11 - 17, 2011

Rejoice: It's the third week of Advent!

Our Jesse Tree is filling up, Advent calendar is half open, and three candles are melting down.  Advent is halfway over and we're enjoying the wait.  After Mass this morning, we put up some lights outside, hung our wreath on the front door, enjoyed some homemade hot chocolate and decorated a gingerbread house.  After dinner, we tossed the kids into the van and drove around to look at Christmas lights.  It was a fun, fun day.

Henry completed his Advent (3) worksheets this morning.  The lesson was "Joseph, Jesus' Father on Earth."  His math lessons for this week are:

  • Lesson 40 - Naming a shape piece using three attributes (shape, color, and size), identifying a missing piece in a matrix
  • Lesson 41 - Making a pictograph
  • Lesson 42 - Assessment 3 - Matching sets and numbers
I also have a big test this week: my three-hour glucose tolerance test.  I'm really hoping that I pass it.  I'm going to use the three hours of solitude in the lab to get our Christmas cards ready to mail out.  Multi-tasking!

Tuesday is the feast day of St. Lucy.  We're going to plant some Christmas wheat.  Hopefully, it sprouts and grows enough to add to our Nativity scene by Christmas day.

The O Antiphons begin on Saturday evening.  In all of the Amazon shopping, there was a little promo for MP3 credits if you opted for no-rush shipping.  I used our credits to get The Great O Antiphons.  It's absolutely beautiful and I'm happy to have it for our final weeks of Advent.
