My cup overflows

This morning I am blessed... well actually I was blessed yesterday evening.  But before I tell you what I am blessed with let me tell you a bit more about my morning.

So I got up and saw shadows dancing in the window of the front door.   At first I thought it was birds but then I saw more shadows - definetively not birds.   It is 530am EST.   A thought come to my mind and I simply reject it....  Can't be that!   No Way!    So I go to the window in our school room and I got surprised to see HUGE snowflakes.   Gigantic snowflakes covering the ground, the vehicles and anything around it.    And right now it is still going down.     *sigh*

Blessings Galore!
So last night I went to the RVHEA meeting and the topic was Geography.   Funny enough I was looking into this a week before.    How to incorporate more geography in our school days?   So when I heard about the subject of the meeting I wanted to go.

A school and another homeschol family had given some curricula away to bless others.   It was first come first serve.   So I found some interesting things.   Here's a list of what I got (and btw there was still more things to grab when I left - other got tons of things as well).

  • and finally, a pack of various papers including gel papers (you know the black ones...)
As you can see I am blessed a lot.    I had nothing in spelling and nothing in Language arts really.   I was considering Geography in a deeper level.   There was interesting Math book but we want to stick with Math-U-See only.  I don't mind if some books are missing (like the student books) in some of these because I can easily adapt it for my kids.  

Thank you for the school and the home school family who gave away their curriculum.   I am forever grateful for them...
