This is a very exciting day in the world of homeschooling. It's like "back to school" shopping- only WAY better. When the UPS guy pulled in, the kids shouted, ran to get scissors, and told me to get my camera. Now whatever would I need that for? Observe the excitement:
E9 insists on opening the box himself.
Math stuff- Horizons Math for three kids, a math game book, and a 100s board book for which I do not have a 100s board. Long story involving a better one from somewhere else that in the end (after this order was made) was too much even for me to get. So, I guess I'm making my own or something...
Super DELUXE Scrabble in a crushed box. Would you believe that they put this game box underneath our dense stack of books. Geniuses. I'm working on compensation for this...
Plus, there's our foreign language experience for the year- Latin.
Exciting stuff here for our Explorers and Native American units. The Jim Weisse story telling CDs are a new favorite for the kids. These two are about Sir Francis Drake and The early stargazers. Fun stuff.
Maps and more maps and US Geography fun. Stay tuned for our Trail Guide notebooks for the year- part of E9's independent study for the year.
There are just a few items we are waiting on now... a model of the eye from Timberdoodle, our set of Narnia CDs from Focus on the Family, a super duper 3 way timer that I can wear on a lanyard so I can keep track of more than one thing at a time while trying to potty train (for good) our youngest, and finally we are now awaiting our first Cobblestone magazine.
