It has been really great, actually, and I'm experiencing the joy of the season in a new way, largely thanks to my 3 year old.
We have baking yet to do, and a visit to the Christmas market, of course, but we also tried something new this year - Christmas Camp, a mini session of four virtual classrooms. It was great!
We (I) signed up because I was interested in learning about SQUILT, and while that was the definite highlight for this musically inclined family, we were pleasantly surprised by the rest.
After a rousing music lesson, we had a natural science class and prepared for a Christmas hike, which we were able to carry out over the long weekend.
Next was a poetry reading, Christina Rossetti's In the Bleak Midwinter. It was lovely to look deeper at the beautiful words.
Finally, we had a crash course in chalk pastels with. It was great!
The best part was we were able to join live due to a last-minute change in travel plans. It was a great way to kick off the long weekend and also refresh my material for our discovery box (our version of a morning basket).
