Homeschool Highlights - Holiday Edition (Week Fourteen) on Homeschool Coffee Break @ kympossibleblog.blogspot.com

Welcome to Homeschool Highlights! 
This weekly link-up is your opportunity to share some highlights of what is happening in your homeschool and in your world each week. If you write a wrap-up post at the end of each week, like I've been doing, we'd love to see what you're busy with from week to week. If you'd like to pick a favorite post from your week that spotlights a resource or activity in your homeschool that you'd like to tell others about, we're interested in those too. I'm keeping the guidelines as simple as I can, and they will appear at the bottom of each post, along with the link tool. I look forward to getting to know you, and I hope this will be a source of encouragement and good ideas for all of us.

Grab a cup of coffee and let's get started!

Accompanying this cup of coffee was some of the hubster's birthday cheesecake. 


Homeschool news  . . . As we get closer to Christmas, the days get busier and schoolwork somehow seems to get put aside in favor of other things. Please tell me my house is not the only place where this happens! We are keeping up with co-op homework (just one more class before the Christmas break!), barely keeping up with History, and stealthily avoiding Algebra. Which can't go on without consequences, obviously. So I am thinking some Saturday school tomorrow may be in order.

Today is a half day of school at best, because Kennady will be at the Christmas Craft Breakfast this morning. I'm very thankful for a good friend that allowed Kennady to ride with them to the event, and I'm looking forward to seeing what she creates!

Other news . . . On Saturday, the hubster and I drove out to Williamsport to check out a barbecue restaurant (delicious!) and stopped at the town's Charlie Brown Christmas display as well. A very nice date night, and we even ran into some homeschool friends while there - what are the chances?!

This week was busy from start to finish, and my house is still not decorated for the holidays because I'm not home long enough to get anything done! Kennady helped decorate at the church on Monday evening; she and I had haircuts and got some shopping done on Tuesday; spent Thursday afternoon with friends; and went to a dinner at church on Thursday evening. On Tuesday I'd thought to have an evening free while Kennady was at chorus, since my choir is finished for the season, but we are crazy busy at work, so I wound up roasting coffee during those hours instead!

What I Loved This Week . . . 

I had the chance to sneak a couple of (low quality) pictures of my favorite Civil Air Patrol cadet in his dress blues:

And I got to see this contrast one morning - moon to the west; and just a short time later, this pastel sunrise to the east:

On my blogs last week . . .


Just A Second is where I share book reviews and other book-related things, and update on what's on my bookshelf. This week I finished India Black (A Madam of Espionage Mystery) by Carol K. Carr and will review it soon. I've been reading:

Isaiah's Daughter: A Novel of Prophets and Kings by Mesu Andrews
An Awakened Heart (Orphan Train): An Orphan Train Novella - Jody Hedlund



A parting shot . . . another look at that chocolate cheesecake. It's so good! Find the recipe here: Chocolate Lace Cheesecake

A Charlie Brown Christmas display...how fun! My son would love that! By the way, that birthday cheesecake looks yummy!

Doodle Mom said...

It looks like you had a wonderful week! I love the picture of your cadet! He looks very grown up.
We do St Nicholas Day every year (it's a German tradition I grew up with) and my kids love it even as teens.

Chocolate cheesecake!? Sounds yummy! Looks like you had a good week!

Dawn Rebekah said...

What a lovely, busy week. We are letting the joys of the season slow down our schooling as well. It is one of the gifts of homeschooling.
Blessings, Dawn

Oh that cheesecake looks amazing!! I've been contemplating tossing in a Saturday of school as well, but I think I've talked myself out of it, grins.

Heather Vogler said...

That cheesecake! My husband and kids always make me cheesecake for my birthday, (they spoil me, I know)! I might have to slip them this recipe since my b-day is right around the corner, haha!

Mother of 3 said...

Oh that cheesecake... yum! I do find that our schoolwork gets pushed to the side a lot during the month of December and I try not to fret about it too much but in the back of my mind it is one more worry and list of thins I must do that I keep coming back to in this hectic season

What a lovely moon-set, sunrise. That is special. And yes - our schoolwork takes quite the change for December, as well. - Lori
