Today we went to the used book stores to try to find books off the kids' reading list for schooling. The first store yielded a few books after much searching. The second store had TONs of books on my lists however, they were all in the vintage books pricing scheme. I love old books but I couldn't bring myself to buy them at those prices knowing that they would never last through the kids reading them. I'll have to keep searching or print them off an ebook site. We are starting school next week with the Robinson Curriculum method. We have used an eclectic mix for a while now but Del and I felt this method would be best for the kids and I as we add our three newbies to the family this fall.
Last night was Craig's twelfth birthday. It is hard to believe he is that old already! I am always amazed how quickly they grow up. We have three beautiful granddaughters that are changing every time we see them. It is so great to be a grandma. The only drawback is not being right next door. I'd love that. Now with the impending move with Del's work we'll be even farther away. I keep reminding myself that Abraham and Sarah moved so far away from their families and not once but a few times. God will provide and we will survive. I'm looking forward to Sunday when my dad and sister and all the kids (and their families) will be with us to celebrate Craig and Erik's birthdays together.
