Once Upon a Sketch has a wonderful challenge. The sketch is great and the theme "It's December" very appropriate! 

Here is my take on it. 

Journaling reads: 
The best of advent, apart from the rehearsals for the Christmas musical, is the advent calendar (according to Sarah!) Even before going to the toilet in the morning, she races to open up the little gift - a chocolate, a pencil, stickers or something fun for the bathtub. 

29 days left before I return to work. Next week, I have 3 meetings to ensure smooth handover of the classes and budget. Sigh. I love my work but I also love staying home with my babies for a full year.

Have a great weekend and a blessed advent. 
All the best,
