Welcome to the blog of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool!

This blog serves three purposes:

1. To have a place to 'jot down' the day to day happenings in our homeschool for our support teacher to see, in hopes that some of the things we do will fit nicely into the provincial learning outcomes.

2. To keep my family up to date on what we're 'up to'.

3. To glorify God.

So on that note, come on in!

The Waiting Tree

Several years ago we received a special Christmas present from Tim's Aunt and Uncle in Oregon, a Waiting Tree. Since then, we have used the Waiting Tree (also known as the Jesse Tree) to celebrate Advent. Each day there is a scripture reading, reflection and song. We start in Genesis with creation on December 1 and continue through to December 25 to the birth of Christ. We take turns doing the reading and then putting the corresponding felt figure on the felt tree that is hung on the wall. Then we all sing a Christmas Song together, and finish off with the kids opening up the next window in their chocolate advent calendars. It's a special time when we as a family can look forward to Christ's birth with eager anticipation.


  1. Awesome Natasha! Now if I could copy and paste I would do that straight onto my blog:) But I will share your blog in my next email:)

  2. I'm not sure how to post into your blog. Is it easy?

  3. It is easy and you can simply copy and paste, however the links for images would need to be embedded. I will add you as an author:)
