I recently received one of the greatest presents of the season from an aquaintance who thought about us.

Her sister had given a full set of Encyclopedias to her to give to Goodwill, and she remembered that we were homeschoolers.  All but one of the books was still wrapped in original shipping plastic.  WOW!  Copyright is 2000, so they are only 10 years old.  I was so excited about them, I ran into the house, and started explaining the treasure to JR, who was less than enthused at his age.  One day, he’ll appreciate it.  I hope. 

In the mean time, my excitment over such a gift has shown me what a true homeschool geek I am.  I guess this qualifies me as a real-to-life, honest-to-goodness, “homeschool mom” if anything does!
