The end of the day - hats drying in front of the fire - the view from my spinning wheel
Christmas is officially over chez Little Shoots. Once we get to new years eve I get a little OCD & down come the decorations amid much sadness.
We do have Epiphany to look forward to, however!
We will be starting 'school-lite' as from tomorrow - lots of reading, a review of maths we were studying before our December break, fun phonics & maths games, a new spelling list or two...
Friday is Epiphany, however - a jewel in the dark winter days.
Here are our plans....
~ We will be reading Matthew 2
~ We shall be singing 'We Three Kings'
~ We shall be reading the story of Baboushka in Festivals, Family and Food theough there is a version of the folktale here
~ We shall be baking a plaited Brioche
~ And of course, we shall be making Crowns
