It's been one of our more exciting years to celebrate the Feast of St. Nicholas!
I found, with the age gap between Stan and Miss Clementine, I'm starting all over when it comes to teaching about St. Nicholas. (And I am so excited to have another go at it! :)
For the past couple of days, Miss Clementine and I have read our books...
watched the St. Nicholas movie...
and displayed our St Nicholas statues and toys.
Our home school group celebrated the feast of St. Nicholas with a fun, festive party put on by a handful of moms. They did such a great job!
Beautiful St. Nicholas images to color *** "Gold" bean bags to toss into the windows for children inside *** A sweet St. Nick doll prize
Treat bags filled with oranges, candy canes, and gold coins (chocolate) *** Christmas bingo
By yesterday afternoon, she had put out a shoe for each sibling and then we waited for St. Nicholas to arrive.
While everyone was asleep, he mysteriously left some books, gold coins, a St. Nicholas ornament (from Slovenia), and a beautiful, new nativity set!
And then this morning...
Did you all see Belle in that photo above?? Isn't she a sweetie?!
No time for a traditional candy cane-shaped coffee cake since our schedules were too busy, but I did have a hot cocoa bar set up.
They like that. :)
It was a good day, a fun feast day!
St. Nicholas, pray for us!
