winter solstice and schooling with Emma

We have been focusing on winter and Christmas lately in our home schooling. It is the coldest and longest night of the year but I don’t think any amount of wishful thinking will bring us snow (which is definitely for the best since our ceiling is still torn up in the bedroom!). Talking about driving a Gig car up into the hills to look for some snow for the afternoon some day soon.

Learning about why snow is white in Mystery Science.

Watching the Snowy Day.

Reading White Snow, Bright Snow.

Listening to Lullatone’s album Winter Whispers on repeat.


dreaming of winter

Don’t get me wrong I have been enjoying Berkeley’s warm and sunny days but ever since we went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, I have been dreaming about the cold. There is snow and the lighting inside the castle is so dreamy. Plus they are all dressed in the cutest sweaters and scarves and woolen coats. There is something about fall that really gets me excited to shop for the coming school term (and that includes clothes too). Its silly I know but I am actually still a student so I indulge just a little.
