Town Mouse & Country Mouse

Because of Christmas, I have not had a chance to post about the last two weeks of Little Saints activities. Two weeks ago we did the "In the City" theme and the following week was appropriately a "Christmas" theme. Both of these weeks were lighter weeks because of all the activities involved in the holiday preparations.
Books We Read
"In the City" books, so many it took two pictures
Our Christmas book basket. I forgot to take a picture of the Little Saints Christmas books
Jesse Tree Bible readings were a part of our readings for Christmas week too.
Crafts & Activities
