Wednesday we spent about 3 hours at a park just enjoying the sunshine.
Tuesday we ventured to the flea market and a couple of thrift stores to see if we could find any good deals.
At one of our favorite vendors I picked up a CD that I had mentioned in a previous post. It is titled 53 All-American Bird Songs and Calls. Each bird is introduced and then it plays about a minute of their song. A really fun tool to use in our nature study. I paid a whole 25 cents for it.
I picked up a few books between the flea market and a thrift store that offers 50% off on Tuesdays.
The four Dear America books and The Wizard of Oz were $2.00 total.
- Dear America: My Heart is On the Ground
- Dear America: Voyage on the Great Titanic
- Dear America: When Will This Cruel War Be Over?
- Dear America: The Winter of the Red Snow
Charlie's Raven by Jean Craighead George and The Organized Homeschooler by Vicki Caruana were .15 cents each! I've checked The Organized Homeschooler out of the library before and she has some useful ideas so I was glad to add it to my library.
I don't usually buy knick-knack type things, but I found this cute little jar. It was 50 cents, so I decided to go ahead and get it. The top part comes off and the bottom is a little ramekin. The apples on it are very similar to a teapot I have, so I couldn't resist.
Lulu found 2 pairs of Old Navy brand capris at the thrift store. They came to $3.00 total. Great for spring weather!Now it's back to some more cleaning out and organizing. I'm hoping to finish up this weekend so we'll start our school week fresh.
