1. All of this sounds wonderful and ambitious, Amy. I haven’t done a lick of Christmas planning, but you remind me that there’s a lot more to focus on than worrying about what to give this or that person. 🙂

    What a great way to look at football. I felt like a hostage at my in-laws’ on Thanksgiving, with the tv on all day… But that’s true that it’s a good opportunity to escape into other activities.

  2. I have a calendar loosely sketched out, but I don’t think we are going to do an specific-to-Christmas schooling (i.e. Christmas around the world) this year. You tempted me with this post though! : ) Lots of Christmas picture books and a few activities interspersed in there but overall very simple for this year. Your plans sound wonderful!

  3. That looks like a fun stack of books and a fun list of activities. Our Christmas activities usually end up being a lot of crafts and baking. We own a stack of Christmas books, but I am usually not very excited about them. Most of them were gifts from relatives who are a lot more excited about Santa than Jesus. 🙂 I don’t mind a little bit of Santa, but I would much rather be reading books that glorify something other than being good in order to get lots of gifts.

    Have you guys ever read “The Trees Kneel at Christmas” by Maud Hart Lovelace? We read it a couple years ago and I was just remembering that I liked it, so I requested it again from the library.
