Cleaning out - Homeschool Books For Sale

It's the new year, and true to form, we're cleaning out, wondering how on earth we got so much stuff! Living in a house with 8 people, things seem to just multiply until they threaten to run us out of house and home. Kids are tackling rooms and basement, and I'm tackling the homeschool bookshelves. I've pulled some great books we're no longer using, thinking they might be well loved in someone else's home. I plan to use the proceeds to benefit children waiting for families.

Want to have a look? Feel free to pass this along if you know others who might benefit, and I'll add to this list as I go. If anyone out of town is interested, I'm glad to ship but will need to figure out shipping and add that into the total. You can let me know if you're interested via comment or email.

On a New Year's Morning

The house is quiet, save for dog and cat and one little boy

And me, putting words to ink.

The rest are slumber-drunk, sleeping off the late night

Of movie and games and ringing in the new year.

Feeder shadow sways on the wall, as chickadee and titmouse

Dart between cotton-tuft sized snowflakes;

Dog, curled in a tight ball, is unimpressed.

I step into the fresh year pajama-clad and thankful

Holding fast to promises kept, and hopeful

For the promise to come.
Wishing you New Year's blessings, and
Trusting in Him,
