LINK to Friday's Fave Five host blog
1. LOOM KNITTING!! I discovered this a couple of weeks ago and have really enjoyed it. It's easy; it doesn't require many supplies; it can be done while you are watching TV or talking; it's just fun to produce something nice in a short amount of time. I will probably make several hats over the Christmas holidays.
2. SCHOOL IS DONE for two weeks and a day!! I repeat: SCHOOL IS DONE!! That's why I can be doing a Friday's Fave Five at 1:07 on a Friday. I am at home, in the den, relaxing. This seeming ice-age length of a week is DONE. Have I said it yet? SCHOOL IS DONE!!!
3. Beautiful school program last night. Here is a picture of the concluding song including the entire school. At this link, you can scroll down and find a video of the concluding song (part of it).
I posted this on our school Facebook page last night:
It's been a long day, being the last full day before Christmas, and then having the Christmas program tonight at Oakwood Christian School. But I wanted to express something yet tonight: Every year, following the Christmas program, I think, "This is why we do this!!" This is why the parents invest in this place, and why the teachers work at this place, and why we exist!! What a wonderful Christmas program. And thank you so much to the parents who entrust their children to our school. Partnering together for the sake of the gospel! Merry Christmas!!
As tiring as this time of year is, the fatigue is a good kind!
4. Christmas stamps. On a whim I stopped at the little for-profit post office near our house, on the way home today, and they had really nice Christmas stamps. I am a sucker for pretty dishtowels and pretty stamps. Got five books for Christmas cards and various things.
5. My birthday!! Yesterday was about the longest day of the week, but it was also my birthday, and it was a good day. Very thankful for the cards, well-wishes in person, and FB greetings of the day. It was a great day!!!
And now - for some rest and then Christmas preparation!!
