The Craft Table by Annie

The first semester of the school year is almost at it's end.
It's been a very busy, full semester. No complaints of boredom, that's for sure!
However, as the holidays and the cold come, I feel they need a new venue for their energy.
I did a craft table a few years ago and it was a huge success. Sometimes I show them some fun projects they can try. I might leave out needles, thread, popcorn and cranberries. Maybe strips of colored paper and a stapler. Sometimes cardboard and straws and directions for fairy wands. Or maybe nothing but stickers and crayons and stuff......

They end up making all of their Christmas presents for their family and friends. And as you can see by their smiles, they have a great time doing it!

Counting Books by Avonlea

We found out an amazing fact! We're counting all the books, to see how much we have. Me and Grant counted 1,634 books in the basement. We still have 2 storys up to do. Pray for us!!! I alone had 164 books that were mine. WOW!!!!!

I love reading good books. Some of my favorite books are Nancy Drew, Daughters of Faith, Jack and Annie [Magic Tree House], Moccasin Trail, and tons of other nice books!
