We just have one more week of school, and not even a full week at that, before we break for Christmas. This is the first time I've taken things a bit easy in December. We went on vacation to Disney in early November, then came home for a week or two, then was Thanksgiving and Sweet Pea's birthday. We just haven't gotten back into our groove. We took things easy this month but still got the most important things done.
Coming up this week is a trip to Williamsburg. We're going to wander the colonial area for a bit before we meet a friend for lunch, then we're going to Busch Gardens for Christmas Towne, there will be some rides open, shows, Christmas fun. Hopefully the girls will enjoy it; we've never been before so we're not quite sure what to expect. We have been to Dutch Wonderland (Lancaster, PA) and Hershey Park (Hershey, PA) during their Christmas displays and have had fun there. Then school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Hopefully we can take Friday off. Both girls are at the point where I think they need the full week to complete a few things and get the chapter test done. Hopefully we can squeeze it in! Sweet Pea and I are also going to be heading to the ski slopes Wednesday and Thursday afternoons for her team practice. Rosie Jane will go with her dad to her Girl Scout awards ceremony on Thursday night. Busy week!!
While we're taking our break, I'll be finding a bit of time to look over school stuff. I need to get us back on track in January. They have off from their French and German classes until Jan. 30 so they'll have one less thing to do for a while. Almost done with the first semester of high school and right now I'm feeling pretty good about it.
Merry Christmas to all! See you in January.
