I'm a Planner!

Made that trip to the Goodwill again. This time I found 12 books that I am super eager to use in the future (all for only $3.18). If you know anything about me, you know that I'm a planner. I don't do anything with out researching and planning for about 3 years;-) It was that way with our truck, our house, our child. . .

These are the books:

(That one on the front right is My Teacher Sleeps At School. It was probably my FAVORITE book when I was in kindergarten. I know I brought it home from the library several times.)
With each step closer to school age, I get so much more excited about homeschooling Jude. I've got all kinds of web pages cached in my computer. I read the blogs of home schooling moms. I have been storing away resources since before Jude was even born. Planning in my head the different learning adventures we can go on. Thinking about job shadowing opportunities (in the farther away future). Looking into rec. sports leagues since he won't have school sports to try out for.

I am SO ready for this! Now it's time to slow my brain down and finish enjoying this baby time;-)

And solely for your viewing pleasure, here are some better pool pics and one of Jude in his great new shirt, my Walmart clearance find ($3!), and posing with his daddy.

Hey, I would love to exchange links/ideas with you some time. I have been collecting preschool homeschool ideas/curriculum lately with the idea of possibly starting something low key in the fall or after Christmas (T turns 2 on 12/30), depending on his interest level and abilities at that point.

JL, your link was broken for some reason. It wouldn't take me to your blog. Can you e-mail me your e-mail address?

Thanks for visiting my blog the other day! Your son is such a cutie! Great find on the books. I am sure that you will get tons of use out of them.

I am having a little contest on my blog come by for a visit again and check it out.
