Just a quick note...

These folks sent me an email and I thought it was worth mentioning here. Remnant Books is a neat site that sells used books for some very good prices. I was surprised to find them for $1.50 or $2.00! That is a really good deal!

I just came back from the Valley Home Educators Conference in Modesto. The vibe was not quite the excited one that it was last year, but there was still a good amount of folks there and as always, a fantastic selection of delectable curriculum choices to peruse. I love that part of it. Surprisingly, even amidst my job of being surrounded by new curriculum on a regular basis, it still holds that "new book smell" for me and I love seeing the neat new things out there.

Science Excursion was my favorite discovery of the conference. I was able to bring home the level 4-6 and cannot wait to start it with the children! What a neat neat curriculum that covers all sorts of areas in a very hands-on manner. Check them out!

"To Be One" is the other product that I look forward to viewing. The producer was a very neat young man. This is an unusual take on getting-to-marriage relationships as it does not take one road and make it "God's Plan" for all. I really look forward to seeing it up close.

That's all for now! What are you planning for the next year? I am hoping to spend some time writing up my list of "will dos" for the next year. What about you?

Oh, and a note about our EarthBox experience--the review. :+)
