Books, Books & more Books

This spooky looking fellow is Kelly's cat Jasper. She took this picture by keeping her finger over the flash, it gave it a scarry feel to the picture perfect for the Halloween season : )

Kelly is going down to my son & daughter-in-law's to spend the weekend with them. I'm so glad they ask her often to spend time with them. It gives her time away from our daily routine which is always a good thing, she comes back refreshed and cheerful.

I had been searching my library's search engine for Halloween books, but I've waited to long again this year most are out. I am getting a copy of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" I thought that might be fun to read this time of year.

Speaking of my library, they just never seems to have the books I'm looking for. Also with them charging $2.00 for each inter-library loan request (and only being able to keep an inter-library loan book out for a max. of 4 weeks) makes it real hard for me to get the books we need : (

So I have made a "Wish List" of books I am hoping to find cheap copies of: Encyclopedia of Nature by DK Publishing, We need that book to be able to start our Biology curriculum from Elemental Science.

Also, I would love to get my hands on The Usborne Art Treasury by Rosie Dickins. It sounds like such a great book to use for art lessons and activities, I've heard nothing but rave reviews about it.

And Your Business Math Series Pet Store, It sounds like a wonderful way to tie in real math to real life situations which might really help Kelly understand just how much math is really needed out in the workforce.

If anyone sees a copy of these books for cheap please let me know - Thank You!

Have a wonderful day!!

I'm still mad at your library for charging for interlibrary loans! Ours are free.

I asked around on my local homeschool list to see if anyone had any of the books you are looking for but no one did. I'll keep my eyes open though and let you know if I happen upon any of them for a really good price :)
