We worked from Monday to Wednesday this week, but I didn't plan as much as usual, and the children also spent an afternoon making Europe lapbooks with pictures of the crafts we did at our home education group this term.
The children have finished making and wrapping their Christmas presents. It is a huge task every year, though each time it gets a bit easier as they can manage more and more on their own. The youngest still needs a bit of help wrapping presents and writing tags, but the three boys are ok. Nonetheless, 4 children all wrapping presents up is a slightly chaotic experience!
Our presents are mostly wrapped too, so I am feeling unusually organised. I have even covered the cake with marzipan today, which is ahead for me. I'm sure there are things I've forgotten...

Today I also took our 9 year old out to a cookery course, which is our Christmas present to him this year. He had a fantastic couple of hours, and came back with sausage rolls and fudge.
And now, it is nearly Christmas. We are looking forward to some time off together to celebrate our Saviour's birth.
