Plugging along… 5 weeks and counting!

There are about 5 weeks left before the new baby arrives, and in that time I am frantically trying to remodel the basement, finish summer projects at church, gather all the baby things we need, and plan a school year. Last summer’s Go Fund Me made it possible for us to buy the books we needed for the 2015-2016 school year. I am hopeful that we can reach our goal this summer too, we are well on our way!

One was Art & Science, another was Ethics for Young People, and the third was a Roaring Spring Teacher’s Daily Plan Book. Altogether, that was about $37. It’s all fine and dandy though because we were fortunate to find several deals on other books, in addition to receiving some gifts by mail, and as a result, we have a lower goal!


Now, instead of aiming for $1500, we are aiming for $1330, of which $155 has already come in. Thank you so much for your help! We are down to about $1,175 for books and supplies to carry us through the next school year. Out of that $1,175, more than half {$715} will go towards Vegas’s involvement in PYCO, and the rest, $460 will cover lessons, supplies, materials and our remaining textbooks.  Thank you again, your support means so much to us.

Planning my next trip to Office Depot to get books spiral bound….. Shelley
