My weakness is books. I just LOVE them. Especially children's books. I had a collection before I even had children (well, I did teach elementary school, so I used them). They are everywhere in our house.... closets, bookshelves, boxes, nightstands, random piles everywhere. I love books.
I have actually been avoiding a local bookstore that is on the way to our Thursday co-op. It is a local bookstore, right in the heart of historic downtown. Today I could no longer resist the temptation, so after co-op we decided to park in downtown and take a stroll...
This is just a sampling of what the store had to offer.
I have a budget for homeschool materials, and I was proud of myself - I only spent $39. I've spent very little on their curriculum this year - we are using the library A LOT! We came home with a puzzle of ancient Egypt, a read-aloud for both children, a math storybook, and a Martha Speaks chapter book for GMan. The woman in the store also gave us a lot of free samples to take home!
