Next on the agenda was some new reading material for Grace. Grace really has to connect with a book to finish it. Here lately that just hasn't happened. A couple of months ago she read the two Lanie books from American Girl and really enjoyed them. They were mostly about plants and nature. She is not that interested in reading their historical books though. She is right on the edge of them being a little young for her. But for independent reading each day I really don't mind, it gets to be her choice. I decided to pick up the two series book Nicki and Thanks to Nicki. These two books have another of Grace's interests, dogs. The Nicki books are about dogs in general as well as training service dogs.
This is a just for fun book for Grace. She really loves all things fantasy. She has a dragon book from this series also. She will also be using it for sketching time. One of her favorite subjects to draw are fairies.
Next comes a couple of items for me. It isn't often that I purchase just for me. Normally I get most of my reading material , non-fiction and fiction, from the library. But I knew I needed to soon start doing some planning for Grace's high school year. I have perused this book before and it looked like it has some good information in it. Good enough to keep on the shelf for future references. There is one other high school book I want and will try to find at the used sale at the convention. I think the name is something like High School Design. It is for families that are homeschooling but not necessarily doing it a traditional way. Which will probably be us. I don't see us taking a completely traditional path for high school subjects, etc. I will post more about this in the future as it plays out.
This is just a little clearanced dollar item I can keep in my purse. I am constantly needing something to write on for books I want to put on hold at the library or just things I want to remind myself to do the next day. Also it will be handy to take to the convention to take notes in sessions, etc.
