It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

The tree is up, the lights are up.
Farmer Dad was not very happy with having to
staple them to the house since the gutters are not done yet,
but the lights are on. Princess is happy.
Princess loves Christmas. The food,the gifts,the movies,
the books, the visits from relatives and friends.
The crafts (our latest - the antler headband made with her hand prints)
baking. Princess loves it all. Momma loves it in theory, but it is so much work.
I am not anywhere near done with my shopping and I am out of ideas.There is still much work to be done around the house.
I'm not sure how Christmas Eve will go this year, Grandpa has decided to
give up treating his cancer (which is spreading quickly) and go the Hospice route.
Should we carry on like planned? Trash it all and go there? We don't know how he'll
be for the holidays or if he'll be here.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
