Well, the countdown is ON!!! Tonight, we're decorating the church's Christmas tree...the waiting of Advent will soon be over, and the Christ child will be here. Our family continues to do our "regular" stuff. This leads me to my December daily - day 19:
|Noah practices almost every day. Each song/excercise 2x.|
I TOTALLY scraplifted this out of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine Fall 2011 edition. Becky Litz from Cranbrook, British Columbia made a "teacher survival kit and clipboard". I used some (ok, most) of her elements. I am not including a clipboard with all of the classmates signatures. That was a really good idea, I just leave things too long...Anyway, here is my result: I made one for each of the boys teachers. Every item has a tag on it explaining its importance.
