Holiday Gingerbread Houses and Trains!

Oh, the sheer, utter JOY on the kids' faces when they saw all these supplies being laid out! Thank you to our friend Alma for this great family activity idea ~ they all went to bed on a sugar-high from eating all the fixins!

Stephen and I have so much fun homeschoooling together.  Today we studied everything from Mongolia to the scientific process of 'uncoiling' -- how the globular protein amino acid chains in egg whites break their bonds when you WHIP them, changing the goo from its viscous liquid state to foamy peaks! Then we moved right into Home Economics and made the egg whites into chocolate chip cookies, and shared some with the cute cleaning ladies who vacuum our building.

And just one of the many indications of the kids' excitement to go back to Texas for Christmas... today I found this life-sized American flag that Kassie had created and proudly stuck amidst the laundry pile clothes.
