Quote of the Day

"When you follow your bliss... doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors; and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else." ~ Joseph Campbell
"The trouble with talk about 'learning experiences' is that it implies that all experiences can be divided into two kinds, those from which we learn something, and those from which we learn nothing. But there are no experiences from which we learn nothing. We learn from everything we do, and everything that happens to us or is done to us." John Holt, Instead of Education

December 2007

Well, December was taken up by surviving a Daddy business trip and recovering from the last one......lucky for us the two week trip in January has been cancelled....sorry Ian :-(

The other two major occurences that delayed Christmas preparations significantly were Bailey's Party (see below) and the boys' first Christmas Pageant with the Kingston Home Learners group. It was our first foray into activities with that group and I think by all accounts a great success!

The boys were very courageous, considering they had no idea what they were getting themselves into and volunteered for everything from acting in two plays, reciting monologues, singing with the group in many instances and Jaxon even sang a solo verse for one song!

Some grandparents even made it to the shows! That is definitely a novelty for us, since we've never lived close enough for that to happen before.

I made red bird costumes for Bailey and Se, adding to my sewing portfolio this fall, ha ha - oh yeah, I'm not sure I posted about making the grand Pokemon costume for Bailey for Halloween - he was Charzard - and they each had three costume changes, except for Se with just the one walk-on role! It was definitely busy but great fun.

Pics to follow. And I am going to work on a slideshow.....wish me luck!...it's a new function on blogger.
