Christmas break begins this week. I don't know about other homeschoolers, but I always find our lives go a little easier if we take Christmas Break (and Spring Break) with our public school brethren. To start the festivities, I took a break from my kitchen duties and headed into town to spend some fun time with my kids. Charming had the day off, too, and even our neighbors (including the dad!) made the trek and joined us at the local AMC theater to see Tron Legacy, Disney's remake of the 80s movie!
Yes, we're geeks! We've been so excited about Tron and matinee prices sweetened the deal. (You know that all movies before noon are $5 at the AMC theaters, right? $5!)
No, it won't solve the ills of the world, but for a couple of hours, you can go have a good time with your kids. I just don't think you can ask for more!
(Now, I must head back to my kitchen...gingerbread men await my attention!)
