I've been wanting to go to Creative Learning Connection for several weeks. We love books! It's funny how I didn't enjoy reading while I was growing up. I've read SO much more since we started homeschooling. CLC had a used book sale this evening and Gretta emailed me to see if we were going. It seemed like a perfect way to spend time with some of our best friends and look for books to add to our collection.
We had a great evening! We met David, Gretta and their kids at Moe's for dinner. We've been wanting Moe's for a long time and this what their first time to eat there. It was a fantastic meal and we had a blast hanging out together. We always do:) Then we went to Fresh Market to look around. I love that place. The kids got their bags of candy and Bobby and I got our favorite flavored coffees. Yum. Oh, and of course the double dipped malt balls. Then we went to CLC. We had a great time looking through the books, but sheesh it was crowded. We spent just over $40 and bought a huge stack of books! We got several reading books for Cody and a handwriting workbook. He also got Mr. Wizard's Experiments for Young Scientist and Science for Fun Experiments which he loves! It's 1 o'clock in the morning and he's doing an experiment by himself right now. I'm not sure if he'll really like the Mr. Wizard book, though. We'll see. Britney picked out Economics Principles and Policy, AP U.S. History Crash Course, The Handy History Answer Book and Writer's Inc Student Handbook - She's in her room reading that now.
Gretta was able to find several items on her list. We're looking forward to going back when it won't be so crowded:)
Then they came to our house to hang out some more. We drank coffee and the kids played Wii and watched How to Eat Fried Worms. Britney practiced her drawing with pointers from David. We talked and laughed a lot. Before we knew it, it was midnight. I swear we could talk for days without running out of things to say!
Ah...we love our friends!!!
