Friday Findings: Literary Advent, A Delectable Education, Civil War Presentation....

DO NOT MISS THESE POSTS....Missy Andrews is hosting A Literary Advent at the Center for Lit blog and I'm really enjoying them!

Here on the home front, we started reading Jotham's Journey by Arnold Ytreeide last Sunday evening for Advent.  The kids are enthralled by the story.  Each day, we all anxiously await the next day's reading.

I've also been listening to the podcasts at A Delectable Education.  I appreciate the fact that they are 20 minutes or less in length.  It's like a quick shot to get you through your day :)

Did you see Amazon's Cyber Monday deal with 30% off the purchase of one book?  Today is the last day.  I purchased a couple books in order to meet the $35 free shipping requirement.  I always get so excited about the prospect of new books, I can hardly wait for their arrival!

A few weeks ago, we had an opportunity to attend a Civil War presentation and it was fabulous!  It fit right into our history study.  The presenter was a wealth of knowledge and had an arsenal of artifacts he passed around for the kids to examine including guns, swords, medical equipment, slave tags, cannon balls, photographs, period money, etc.   RileyAnn was even called upon to model an artillery uniform...
