Grand ideas and all, but I should have known better. While I like the idea of unit studies, they just don't really work for us, especially at this time of year. There's too much going on between Sweet Pea's birthday, Thanksgiving (not necessarily in that order), shopping, baking, Christmas, youth group stuff, and all sorts of other miscellaneous things.
I really liked the idea of the Christmas unit study that I got, but I think it's too much work for this time of year. While it had movies and books, it was primarily a writing program from what I saw. Maybe I'll save it for next year, take a closer look at it during the summer so we can work it in during December. The good news is that I got it for free so I'm not feeling like I wasted money on it.
I do have higher hopes for the French unit study I got. It's only a week long and looks like a lot of fun. I'll be taking a closer look at that one over Christmas break, maybe while the gang is off skiing. I told Sweet Pea that we'd do it the first week back to school in January. Should be a good time to review French for her, her last class is next Friday and they don't start again until Jan. 30.
