In Our Life This Week . . .
1.) I finally had a mother-daughter date on Wednesday. We started off the day visiting the Friends of a Library bookstore at our local library. An hour later, we drove into town to another library bookstore. We purchased several books at both stores. I am glad that we share this common interest and love of books. A sweet gentleman paid for Alyssa's books at the first location. While shopping he asked her what books she planned to buy. She mentioned the titles and told him she picked two books that were on sale, but that the other two were not on sale. She pulled out a $2 bill to pay the cashier, but he wanted her to keep it for good luck because apparently there weren't many 2 dollar bills around these days. He bought her a crocodile book, the butterfly book, and two chapter books from the Chronicles of Narnia series. He gave us no choice even though I pulled out a $5 bill to pay. It was very kind of him. I spoke with her about paying it forward when the moment arrived. Later that day, Alyssa noticed that an older lady needed some more change to pay for her books. My daughter reached in her backpack and gave her the necessary change! I was so happy!

Places We Went and People We Saw . . .
3.) Alyssa caught a cold from somewhere. She was so sick we had to cancel our plans with good friends this weekend. She won't be swimming with her father or going anywhere until she feels better. She went to several stores and to the pool this week with her father in addition to our date.
In Our Homeschool This Week . . .
4.) I attended an awesome MommyTime Facebook party on Thursday. I love chatting with other parents and finding out about new products on the market. The homeschool community is blessed to have such variety to choose from. Speaking of great products . . . I recently posted my review for ONE of our favorite curriculum called Bible Study Guide For All Ages. It is awesome!
