I love getting new curricula in the mail!!

We've received lots of mail this year, being on the TOS Homeschool Crew, but right now I've been buying some curriculum for next year.  So, the new things coming in the mail are things I picked out and bought (used).

Yesterday, Tapestry of Grace Year 4 arrived!  I scrounged up 5 ugly binders (3 are from the basement and smell like it) to get it out of the box before anything was lost or damaged.  I'm still waiting on Tapestry of Grace Classic Year 3 to arrive.

Today The Mystery of History, volume 1 arrived.  I just wanted to see it.  I keep hearing about it and wanted to have it in hand to compare with Tapestry of Grace.  I don't think we'll be switching, because we're ready for year 4 of Mystery of History, and she's still writing it.  Plus, I think it would take more work to adapt it to everyone.  But I just wanted to see what others were talking about.  I've never bought any curriculum just to see it before.  But I used my Big Fat Check from ebates.com to buy it.

Yesterday I paid for Beyond Five In A Row, volume 2.  Once it arrives, I'll own all the FIAR teacher's manuals, except BY FIAR vol. 1.  I owned it once, but loaned it to someone and haven't ever had the nerve to ask for it back.  I still waffle over whether I should ask, or just let it go and replace it.

Now to dig in and look this stuff over!  Fun! 

I'm smiling right now, watching my 8 yo son and my 2 yo daughter dancing while listening to Pure NRG, a Christian tweeny group.  I love watching children dance, full of joy and without any reservations.

We're hoping and hoping to receive a package from FedEx today with the Schleich animals that we'll be reviewing.  The kids pray every night that FedEx will come tomorrow.  Silly kids.  I'm hoping the other two curricula I bought arrive soon, but I'm trying to be more patient than the kids are being. 

Trusting in Him,

    I thought I was the only one who could get excited over new homeschool material.

    I have also been trying to find curriculum for next year.


  2. Did you loan BY FIAR vol 1 to me? I *think* I found mine at a local yard sale, but maybe that was only some volumes and I borrowed one? If it was me please tell me.


I love to hear from you. Thanks for your comment!
