We've been enjoying all the newness of our holiday traditions this year. Being gone for two weeks in the month of December, though, we've definitely kept it simple.
If nothing else, but having done that alone, it is a good reminder to keep it simple. We've wrapped up our last day of school now, and are on to a two week break.
Certainly not a break from learning. But an attempt to rest and regroup and enjoy those last few traditions this wonderful season affords us.
