Today is the first day of Advent. Each week the kids and I will be learning a carol and if I can find the history behind the song, reading up on that as well. This week is Silent Night. This year I'll be doing a 4 week count down of crafts for Advent and a 25 day devotional count down from Danielle's Place.
