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!

A Blessed Christmas Season

With the flurry of activity that the Christmas season brings, my attention was drawn away from blogging and towards the celebration of Christ's birth. Each day of Advent passed, more quickly than the last and suddenly Christmas has come and gone.
So here are some highlights of our celebration:
1. Decorating and more decorating. That's one 6 foot tree, one 5 1/2 foot tree, one 5 foot tree, one 4 foot tree and 4 small metal trees. Also, 2 large nativity scenes, 2 small nativity scenes, one Christmas village, Snow Baby display, lights strung everywhere, wreath on the door, window clings on various windows, stockings hung and one Christmas star hung. I think that about covers it, whew!
2. Hosting the Homeschool Christmas Craft Party.
3. Advent Readings and Singing each night using our Waiting Tree and of course the chocolate advent calendars.
4. Christmas Baking including Santa cookies and a Gingerbread Train.
5. Turkey Dinner x 2
6. Christmas morning - Christmas breakfast including, among other things, Grandma's Cinnamon Pull-Aparts, yummy!, then time to open stockings which always include a chocolate letter and lots of other goodies!
7. Grandpa reading the Christmas Story.
8. A whole 10 days with Daddy off work!
9. New Year's Eve games and fun at the Jackson's.
Now that we're all caught up, here's some photos to enjoy!
