homeschool wrap-up: december and january!

we missed the december post so this is a joint post for most of what we did for the past two months in homeschool.
i say most because our season was so busy that i didn't get to take alot of pictures and during the move from my parents' house to our house, i might have "misplaced" a few pieces of art or the occasional craft.
but all in all, we had a great two months and its nice to be in our new place and in our new schoolroom!

working on letters and phonics

we were invited to my old alma mater's annual world bazaar! michael loved seeing all the different children and all the different countries
