Christmas Countdown

Don't forget next Sunday is the start of Advent. We read from two Advent books, one in the morning and one in the evening. We also read from Jotham's Journey, a trilogy of books which are very exciting. If anyone has one of the other books in the trilogy I will happily trade you for this Christmas.

Over the next couple days I will be relaying what we do to prepare for Advent.

Tomorrow, as time allows, I will be getting our Advent box ready. Each day of Advent will have a particular activity.

Each day, one child will light the Advent candle, another will draw a card with the activity and in the evening another will unwrap a present (consisting of a Christmas book or movie).

We will have our Advent wreath, with five candles, out and ready to go on Sunday of next week. I will also be wrapping books and movies. I'll talk more about that on Monday.
