Weekly Wrap Up–Trees, Nutcracker and Life

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with your families.   We were in jeopardy of having our Thanksgiving plans being cancelled due to snow.  Luckily our 8 inches of snow last Wednesday was cleared from the roads by early Thursday and we were on our way.


We worked on our Christmas decorating over the Thanksgiving break as well.    The day before the snow, I changed out the fall garden flags and raised the Nutcracker banner.


The girls put up their little white and blue classroom tree.


We put our antique/outdoorsy tree in the sunporch.


The “fancy” tree is up in the “formal living room”.   Like there’s really anything “formal” at our house.


This week has been fun.   We’ve been on two field trips.  One was to the Spoils of War Museum, and the other was to a veterinarian clinic.  We’ve also worked on math and language arts each day.  The December homeschool schedule is very abbreviated.

Nutcracker stage week is next week.  This means really long rehearsals, lots of makeup and lots of stress.  Our head ballet facilitator and creative genius, Ms. Pam, was hospitalized this week, and may not make it out of the hospital this coming week.   This has added an amazingly big kink in things, but the ballet team/family is rallying and the show will go on!  Prayers, for Ms. Pam’s recovery would be greatly appreciated.

Tonight we are SUPPOSED to go to a live production of A Christmas Carol. I can’t wait to tell you about that!

Linking up with the Weekly Wrap Up and Collage Friday.

Pin It!


  1. 3 trees! My kid would love that!

    A Christmas Carol would be a great stage show - that sounds like a lovely evening. Enjoy!

  2. So glad you didn't have to cancel your plans. :)

  3. We are in the last day of Nutcracker mania around here. I hope your Ms. Pam recovers and makes it to the show. I can imagine how crazy that would make everything.
    Blessings, Dawn
