Welcome to Middle School Monday! Except that today is Tuesday, I know. Here's the thing - we are taking an extended break for Christmas this year, and despite my best intentions I didn't get this ready to post yesterday. But I am going to leave this link-up open to the end of the month, because there's a good chance I won't get anything ready to post next week either.
On Saturday, I took Kennady to the dress rehearsal for the Children's Chorus Winter Celebration concert.
The concert on Sunday was beautiful, but I find it hard to get decent pictures with my simple camera. This one is a bit fuzzy, but you can see Kennady in the back row, third from the right.
Yesterday we picked up my parents from the airport (thus my absence from my blog!) and they will be here until the first week of January, so I don't plan for us to get much school done over the next couple of weeks. Although we will be going to a cabin for a few days, so it's very likely that we'll have some field trips and phys.ed. things to count as school, and probably Kennady will take along some of her reading for school as well.
During our Christmas break, she will also be doing some artwork - she has been asked to do a "live" drawing of a manger scene for the Christmas Eve service, which is pretty exciting and an interesting challenge!
How much time off will you have over the holidays? Are there Christmas activities you do that will "count" as school? Leave a comment and let me know!
Each week I invite bloggers to share their posts about middle school here on Middle School Monday. The link is open through Friday, and I will do my best to visit, comment, and share your posts. Please grab the Middle School Monday button to add to your post or to your sidebar when you leave your link below, and please visit the other links and comment or share. I look forward to seeing what you and your middle schoolers are doing!
Please visit your neighbors, leave comments, and share!
This post will (hopefully) also be linked at the Finishing Strong weekly link-up hosted by Education Possible.
