Homeschool: Christian Book and Gift

I went middle-of-the-year school shopping yesterday at Christian Book and Gift, a Rochester store with a whole room devoted to homeschoolers. I had ordered some titles and of course, we had to browse for five minutes. At the checkout, the friendly and knowledgable (and lovely) Lisa told us that if we spent $100 in homeschooling supplies in one shopping trip, we would receive a fifteen percent discount on that purchase. Our subtotal before tax was $82, so it was a no-brainer, like getting a free book. We went back and chose two more titles. I wanted to share this incentive with other area homeschoolers who would enjoy the discount, which only applies to homeschool materials. Happy shopping!

Here is what we bought, if you are interested in knowing what we are learning or adding good titles to your own homeschool bookshelves:
