  1. Blessings Eva! So much going on here, I haven't had the time or energy to comment or email. Working on that! I hope you get your car back and running well soon. Also, I plan to take down our tree on Thursday. First I planned Monday actually, but I'm still hoping for sometime this week! I'm looking forward to the space now that we are doing lessons again too. Enjoy your students and new teaching space:) I plan to create more in depth German language lessons here starting in February. My daughters requested it and are very excited! Yay!-- Barbara

    1. I know how that feels, Christmas break was too short. The car is back and seems to be okay, at least for now. I would be interested in your German ideas. Would you like to share?

    1. Richtig geraten, man muß noch einen Faden durchziehen, wenn es fertig ist.

  4. Ich liebe das auch, wenn man wieder mehr Platz hat nachdem etwas Grosses wegkommt - auch wenn der Weihnachtsbaum so schön ist.

    1. Unsere Zimmer sind sowieso so klein und mit dem Baum dort, kann man gar nichts mehr tun. Jetzt stehen auch wieder unsere Lernkisten hier, das ist so doch besser als überall im Haus verteilt.

  5. Good evening, Eva! My thoughts on our German lessons are to order the Teach Me German and More German books by Judy Mahoney as a start. For Advent, we received the Fröhlichte Weinachten book and CD on St. Nicholas Day. We enjoyed it and my mom loved singing along with us some of the old songs she grew up singing!!! She pulled out her German song book from the 1940's. Then my next plan is to decide which lesson book looks good. There are several on amazon I'm eyeing. First, the Kinderlieder; then, maybe the German For Children or the German Made Simple. Do you have any thoughts or recommendations? Blessings, Barbara

    1. I know the "Teach Me French" CDs, but not the German ones. Which "Fröhliche Weihnachten CD" ist that? Is that one I have mentioned on my blog? So nice your mom is singing along. It must make her very happy. Is the "Kinderlieder" also one we have or is that a different one again?` Do you have links for the other two? I looked at amazon and found two books with the titles you mentioned, but I am not quite sure if they are the ones you are talking about.

  6. Eva,

    We always feel a bit sad as we take down the tree. But there's always something new to look forward to. We haven't yet thought about any serious work because my husband is still on holiday from school.

    I love embroidering too!

    1. How long is your husband's break? Whenever we have a college break, we also tend to do a homeschooling break. What kind of embroidery do you like?

    2. Eva,

      My husband has 6 weeks break at Christmas. He returns to school (work) next Tuesday.

      I enjoy embroidering simple designs on calico with red thread. I usually tea dye the work when I've finished and then frame them. The girls enjoy red work embroidery too. I once wrote a post about it if you're interested...

  7. That is like the German summer bread the schools get, six weeks! Here the summer break is three months!!

    What pretty embroidery you have done. I have only tried cross stitch so far, but Miriam is trying different stitches.
