Christmas School Requested

My high school senior asked yesterday if we were doing Christmas School this year. We haven't done it in the last couple years, at least not to its full extent.

But David, my nearly eighteen-year-old, said something along the lines of, "I really love doing Christmas School. It's one of my favorite things." He mentioned liking reading the Nativity story (which we do every year).

How can I say no to that?

He expressed the desire to make a gingerbread cathedral. (He thinks big.) The other kids all wanted to do card houses again. Here are some posts about our past Christmas School experiences, including one from 2008 with pictures of the card houses.

Note: we did not design or make that cathedral. I just found it on the internet. You can see more pictures of it here. Hopefully David's will turn out somewhere between that and THIS.

Here's a funny article of 10 gingerbread house fails including the one I just showed you.

So, I guess my December lesson planning will include Christmas School! Stay tuned for how that pans out during my oldest child's last year of high school. Sniff.
