Happy Solstice

Yesterday was the winter solstice and beginning today, the days are starting to get longer again in the norther hemisphere. Watching the sun set at 4:30 PM is very depressing, so I’m thrilled the light is returning. I’m not alone, humans have been celebrating the winter solstice as long as humans have been celebrating anything. This year, we decided to study a few of these winter celebration traditions in our homeschool.

Gift Ideas for Teenage Boys

It’s holiday gift giving season. Shopping for young kids is usually pretty easy, but knowing what to buy teenagers can be a lot harder. And teenage boys can be especially challenging. On top of Christmas, both of my son’s have December birthday’s, which means I need to give A LOT of gifts this month. Here are my soon to be 12 and 14 year old boys wish lists. Hopefully, this will give you some ideas for gifts to get the teenage boys on your list.
