Thanksgiving comes at a busy time of the semester, so by the time it rolls around, we’re all needing a break. In fact, I let the girls convince me to let them skip school on Tuesday (despite that fact that I cruelly made my student comes to class Tuesday afternoon).
It was a very relaxing break. We cooked and played and read and generally enjoyed each others’ company.
Thursday we went to my parents’ house for a yummy Thanksgiving meal and had our annual silly string fight.
Friday (my very favorite day of the year!) we went to get our tree and decorated our house.
We surprised the girls with a Lego Winter Market set, so we spent Saturday and Sunday building on it — still working on the spinning carousel!
And yesterday afternoon, we celebrated a great break with milk and cookies.
The break was exactly what our family needed. I feel renewed as we move into the last few weeks of school before Christmas!
