But, there is a silver lining, and that is what we are thankful for today: Giveaways!
Homeschool publishers know that Giveaways are great advertising, and we know that if you keep on entering, you might get some sweet free curriculum.
Don't ask me how many Giveaways I've entered...(actually not that many) but you can ask me how many I've won...
Three in the last 5 months, baby! Besides being fun to win, it's had a real impact on our curriculum cost---because good curriculum is not cheap!
Latin for elementary students? Check. We won it.
We are definitely not in Kansas anymore, but we won the Oz Giveaway. Sadly, no flying monkeys or munchkins were included with the prize...but there is other sweet stuff in the box. And besides,we have four little munchkins in our house who spend a lot of time acting like flying monkeys, so it's probably just as well.
And, just this last week, we won the Apologia Flying Creatures curriculum, complete with audio CD's.
I can tell you, after winning the last one, we were flying high.
So today, we are thankful for: Giveaways!
