Wrapping up the year.

I am wrapping up our year in more ways than one.  As I prepare for the New Year I am preparing for our new school year.   We begin our school year with each new year.  (More on why in another post).  So in the next few weeks I will be sorting through what the children have done this year, and creating their portfolio.  ( I will show samples in another post).  I will be boxing up used curriculum for another child and another year and bring out the new curriculum.  Then we will set up their school planners and be ready to go come January 3, 2011.

What I do want to share with you is where I go first to get the books my kids will be reading and I find them for free.  Buying books for 6 children can quickly eat up your homeschool budget so after looking in our public library, I then go free online sources and ebooks.

Sheri at Graham Family Ministries put together a great post of many of the places I go for ebooks.  She also has some great ones I did not know about.  Check her post for yourself.

Monthly Giveaways

My blog is fairly new and I certainly don’t have many readers.  For this reason I did  not have any comments made on my monthly giveaways.  I will try this set of books one more time and in honor of fathers day probably add one more book.  So if you have not done it yet please click on the Month Giveaways tab and read about the wonderful books that you could add to your library for free.
