Christmas Break!

After 83 days of school, it's finally time for a break. We did take a few days at Thanksgiving and one or 2 days where we just couldn't do school because of busy schedules. This morning, it was hard to know what to do with myself. The kids, however, had no trouble. I do believe we have an engineer in the family. This is the creation they came up with to make use of the train track since one of the train cars broke. They have tweeked the creation until I believe they have it working just right. 5 stars for creative use of household objects. They've used the phone, remotes, legs, stools, a nutcracker, etc. to make this go. If you look closely, you can see our sad tree. I'm really hoping it makes it just a few more days! Things keep falling off of it since the branches are drooping ever lower as it dries out.
Obviously, we'll not be traveling this year for Hannah. This puts us possibly the end of January at the earliest. Not sad, not discouraged, just moving along and trusting God to continue working on our behalf. I did find a winter coat for her, so that's ready. Wishing we could shower her with gifts this Christmas and hold her tightly to celebrate. However, these will be the last days she'll not be with her forever family, and the last she'll be with her foster family that she's grown to love these last 2 years. I'm so thankful she's with a good family. Not much longer now....
