Christmas in March!

Much to my surprise, I opened the front door today to find this....

And inside....

Books, books, books!  23 in all.  (And this is our second order of this quantity in just over a week).  My girls are LOVING reading for the first time ever!  You see, I grew up reading ONLY when I absolutely had to, and even then, skimming the books simply to get a report or assignment done...never by choice!  Even today, I don't enjoy reading for pleasure by myself, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE reading to and with my kids!   My hub and I have prayed many times that the Lord would give our children a love for reading and He has shown favor and answered our prayer.  I am so blessed!  Most of our books that we received today are about American pioneers and I am so excited to start this study with the girls tomorrow.  I love that we have the freedom to homeschool and teach our children true history, science, and God's truths everyday...all day!   For this, I am grateful!  I'm also thankful for a husband that works hard to support our addiction  love and fascination for books.    (We get 90% of our books from and absolutely LOVE the books that they offer.)

Stop in Goodwill sometime and check out their book section. They are obviously used but I have found a lot of great books for 39, 59 and 99 cents!

I want that box!!!! What a treat.
Nice to meet you on here- can't wait to check out more of your blog.

I used to live in St. Cloud but we left as North AMerican Missionaries 3.5 years ago, that must be why we've missed each other. Looking forward to getting to know you:) Blessings!

Thank you for your sweet comment! Your post reminds me of more things I'm thankful for - the thrill of getting new curriculum and the joy of teaching my kids to read!

Have a blessed day!
