Don't you just love the holidays? We had a very nice Christmas and New Year and I was so thankful to actually be together this year.
Josh was able to be home for Christmas Eve and Christmas again this year. Our last few years we have been lucky to be together on both days! We had planned to do Christmas in Disney this year and only give a few presents to the kids but we were still having some issues with PSD from our transfer so we decided on only a few good gifts. Thankfully a majority of the presents we were planning on giving had already been purchased prior to our transfer to Japan!
The holidays are over now and we are focusing on going back to school. I always wonder if other home schoolers take breaks during the holidays or just work straight through. Usually we work straight through- even during the summer but doing that allows us to take breaks as needed rather than being held to the public school system schedule. Due to our stressful move and the fact that we will be missing Josh for over half of the year, I thought it would be best to just take a rest to recharge all of our batteries. My children do not only learn Monday through Friday from the hours of 8:30-3:30 with pro days, week long holidays and exclusive learning only during the seasons of fall, winter and spring... we learn everyday during every hour! How about you?
