Macy’s Day Parade Lesson & November Fun 2015

In this post: Hannah’s Balloons over Broadway book lesson and other November fun from 2015. 

Hello, dear ones! I hope you are well. November is such a great time to focus on thankfulness and blessings. It’s also the time of NaNoWriMo, National novel Writing Month, a contest to write a 50,000-word novel in a month. My family enjoys these traditions each year. We also like to watch the Macy’s Day Parade on Thanksgiving day. Last year, my best friend Hannah hosted a lesson on the book Balloons Over Broadway for our homeschool group.  Balloons over Broadway is a book about the balloons in the Macy’s Day Parade. Here’s what happened…
