Today is the first weekday of our Christmas/Year-End Hiatus. As the first day when we'd normally be doing bookwork but are not, it's a special occasion - made even nicer for the girls by God's gift of a bit of snow yesterday afternoon and through the night. Though friends to the west got socked with at least a foot, we only have a couple of inches. But that didn't stop the girls from taking advantage of it right after breakfast and morning chores.
And today I've enjoyed giving her a special treat of her own: time to watch the Boz Christmas movie, A WowieBOZowee Christmas. Most mornings, Rachel and Abigail are working on their studies, so the TV must stay off. And Leah either goes home right after lunch or naps in the afternoon. So, though I think it might be a rather regular "holiday occurrence" for the next couple of weeks, it's rare that I get to "spoil" her with a preschool-focused movie. Of course, she didn't sit in front of it for its entire 45-minute run - she went off few times to grab books and play with her pegs - but she came back to watch every so often, especially when she heard singing.
