{ Week 21 }

Another busy week here, even if I didn't have the camera out to catch it all.

Here's the odd shot that I did get though:

A letter to the Hare.

I overlooked all the spelling and what nots, choosing to focus on looking at content.
We can always fix those pesky spelling and grammar errors at a later date.  Right now it's more important to get the child writing freely without the feeling of condemnation because they can't get things perfect.

This week I decided that I'd give Charlotte a week off school.  She bugged me a few times for school, but I mostly just fobbed her off.  I don't want to rush or overwhelm her too much by constantly jumping hoops in the worksheet department.  In the end we did these { today } with our new dot markers.  She thought that they were heaps fun.

And now, due to the shortage in todays post I thought that I'd talk about some more bargain book finds from second hand book stores.

Both of these beautiful, non marked hardcover books are in excellent condition, and only cost $1 each!

What I've started doing is having the girls come and sit for an additional 30 mins reading time.  I've been scheduling it for the evenings.  This way they come fresh after a few hours off school.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to check out your local second hand stores for book bargains.  Come back and let me know what you found.  :o)

To infinity and beyond!


  1. I agree second-hand book stores are the best! I am excited to explore and find more things at the thrift store this summer.

    1. Don't forget to do show and tell on your blog so I can check out what you get. :o)


I really appreciate you taking the time to visit and leave me messages. Thanks so much.
