I think we’re going to lay low a bit this week; we did a bunch of things last week that peaked with Biggie’s birthday party with his old school chums.
I’ve got less things on the calendar for this week. I’m thinking we need to conserve some energy for the big push into Thanksgiving.
Here’s what I do have, though:
The 2015 season for the penguin nest checks at Cape Royd, Antarctica will start today. Follow the progress of this penguin colony and learn about penguins, ecosystems, climates, etc.
Black Friday: Shop Local
Over 50 independent local stores will open early and provide significant discounts. It’s a good weekend to shop local.

NovaScoop is a local homeschooling community that’s having a holiday kick-off event from noon to 4 pm at St. Peter’s in the Woods Episcopal Church (Burke, VA).
Small Business Saturday
