Posts of Advent Past

I have noticed that as I blog longer, I post less and less about what we are doing on a day to day basis in our little homeschool.  The main reason for this is that I like to post when we do something new, and one of the major basis of our homeschooling method is that what Kylee is doing this year is what Caleb did two or three years ago and Aidan did a few years before that.  I go through our homeschooling closet (aka 90% of what should be my pantry) and dig out things I have already made or already presented.

It isn't *new* to me.

As a reader, however, that doesn't mean you get the same reminders I get from digging through my closet!  Here are some additional posts from previous years that you may find useful in planning activities this December.
