Revisiting Some Archived Articles that Have Not Been Lost, but May Have Been Forgotten and Are Worth a Fresh Read
My favorite day of the week is always our Classical Conversations community day, but I also really enjoy the more relaxed days of the Christmas break. We study the things we like at our own pace for a few weeks and I have time to work some games into regular school hours. We also take advantage of the dark, cold, winter evenings to play games together. My family loves Monopoly, Bananagrams, and Boggle. If another family or two can join us, we play Charades or Trivial Pursuit for Kids. I have the happiest memory of my own father acting out “Peter Rabbit” in a game of Charades. There is nothing funnier than a dad acting out some classic literature for his family. These are some of our favorite Christmas blessings: time to laugh and play together as a family.
