I went to my very first homeschool conference, SEARCH, yesterday and I loved it! It was so awesome to be surrounded by Christian homeschooling families and children. I felt right at home, it was wonderful. I was able to hear Todd Wilson and Ginger Plowman speak and both were inspiring, especially Todd, he is SO funny! I wish I had remembered to pick up Wise Words for Moms, I am going to have to order that. She used it in her presentation and it is a great reference tool for us Christian moms!
But I have to say the BEST part was this….
Our used book sale treasures!!!
In case you can’t tell all of the GOODIES in there, let me highlight a few of my favorites, with the links you will see them at full price and be amazed, as I only paid about $50 for everything in the picture! The books alone are worth way over $50 at retail price!! I had brought $100 to spend and got everything I wanted for $50 🙂 I am SO happy, can you tell?
- A to Z Lower Case Puzzle (K LOVES the upper case one we have, I was going to buy this at ful price soon anyway!)
- Cuisenaire Rods Alphabet Book, Problem Solving A to Z, Grades K-4 (for K)
- Smath Game
- Sea Animals Thematic Unit (for our ocean theme this summer, something I had also wanted to bu full price!)
- Where in the World
- Pegs in the Park
- Hermie & Friends Playset (K LOVES Hermie)
I also picked up MANY great books for our ocean theme this summer, paying about 50 cents each for them!!! I also stocked up on many other books, mainly non-fiction animal books for P since he really enjoys them!
I did pay full price for a new book-Instructing a Child’s Heart, written by the author of my favorite parenting book–Shepherding a Child’s Heart. I already started reading it and love it!!! It was a great day, and a bonus-I got to spend it with a great friend and fellow homeschooling mom!
