“December’s wintery breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane, obscuring summer’s memory…”
― John Geddes A Familiar Rain
We invited half of the fam and went to the lighted hiking trail in a nearby town. We really enjoyed it last year and I wanted to do it again this year.
“December is the month of light. It is full of the beauty of the love we can bring into our life.
You can choose to be stressed or you can choose to let the small stuff go and be peaceful this Holiday season.
It really is a choice you make.”
― Eileen Anglin
“I heard a bird sing in the dark of December. A magical thing. And sweet to remember. We are nearer to Spring than we were in September. I heard a bird sing in the dark of December.”
― Oliver Herford
We took off the entire month of December from schooling, a much-needed break from a hectic life. While at times we do not formally “homeschool” we are always learning. We spent plenty of time outdoors photographing, enjoying, and investigating God’s creation.
