Today we started our unit study on how different cultures around the world celebrate Christmas and the holiday season. We talked about globes and maps and identified all the continents. The girls got their notebooks that I’ve put together for them, and they decorated their covers. They also did some coloring in the notebooks. We had dinner at the INTERNATIONAL House of Pancakes. After dinner we went to the South Hill Adventist Church for their annual Journey to Bethlehem. It was wonderful.

What a journey! We had such a great time and want to thank the South Hill Adventist Church! The proceeding pictures are from the experience (they provided a dvd with music and slideshows).
