Our Weekly Charity ~ We started our holiday weekly charity challenge. This week we made shoe boxes for Meals on Wheels. My kids love making shoe boxes for the elderly and housebound. We are even thinking about taking on a small route once a week next school year. It would only take 1.5 hours a week and could be a wonderful opportunity for the kids.
Home Economics ~ It is that time of year where I feel like sorting and organizing. We did lots of that this week. Anne also polished all of the silver in the house. It took her three hours over a few days. We inherited all this silver and do not use it. However, in case the children want it some day, we try to maintain it. We only polish our silver once a year, and it is a job Anne really enjoys.
A Wonderful Production ~ We met up with some friends and went to the production of All Great Books performed by the Reduced Shakespeare Company. It was an awesome show that presented an important fact or two about 89 classic books. It was fast, hilarious and surprisingly educational. The production did my Homeschool Mom heart proud, because my kids kept saying over and over to each other, "I remember this one" and "We just read that one."
