I feel the stress pushing down on me!!
I still haven't ordered/purchased our books!!!!!
In all honesty, besides a few consumables that the kids need and a few new curriculum items that Anna needs, we don't need much. I'm very much a minimalist when it comes to what needs to be purchased. I would LOVE more free reading books, especially ones that correspond to our history topics, but that is what our public library freely provides for us:)
I'm NOT just starting to work on what to use.... that is a more difficult task!! Thankfully I have a plan of what I hope we'll be using already figured out;)
My little Amazon account has sat since June 11th with plenty of great books that need to be ordered just waiting for me to hit "Proceed to Checkout"!!! LOL!!
But tomorrow I am hoping to get to an awesome used & new homeschool store!! I am blessed that this store is very close (relatively speaking) to us. In fact, I am planning my shop today!! I want to go there first to scoop up any "used" items before I order them new!! So, I am planning my shop today!!
I am online with many different windows open on the computer...
- my homeschooling store (their online catalog)
- amazon (to compare prices & fill-in the gaps)
- this list (sonlight books that fit the 4 year, well-trained mind cycle)
- my list of planned curriculum for this year
Oh, the kids worked on their grade level signs this morning.... hoping to be ready to share our School Pics on Monday:)
Until then, we'll be celebrating an early birthday with Caleb and friends;) Hopefully catching up with Grammie and Pey!!
I will be very glad though to have our homeschooling books purchased!! Always nice to have exactly what is needed when schooling begins;)
