A Look Ahead (November 2008)

Wow its November already. Soon the holidays will be upon us and I am so excited. We are currently still on track with schooling this year and that is rare for us.
This month is going to be a busy one. Lucky for us this is the time of year when we start to slow down and spend even more time doing activities as a family. Papa is spending much of this month off from work and we couldn't be happier. We all need a vacation. Lately we have been seeing less and less of Papa but that is going to change. He will only be working 8 days this month. Can you feel the excitement?
Much of our time will be spent enjoying each other and having fun.
We will still be schooling this month. Here is how the month of November will look like for us.

This school year is flying by! I'm glad you're on track, we've gotten a bit behind at my house, but we're chugging along. Enjoy your time with Papa, I can appreciate how your children will enjoy extra time with their daddy.
