Better late than never... my thank you note

I have to confess, I am not so great at timely thank you cards. I'm like the bride who knows she has up to a year to send out the cards. I am filled with thankful thoughts, I ponder these all the time. But do I put a pen to paper and actually send out the notes? Not enough. 

With a blog, I can send a public thank you letter. No stamp needed. It's a nice way to let the whole world read our mail, without violating any federal laws by opening up other people's mail. If you are not the HSBA Post or Math-U-See, consider yourself legally tampering with someone's mail. 

Math-U-See gets a huge thank you. I have been a long time fan of Mr. Demme for years. I feel it is God's provision. When I was awarded the 2010 Thrifty Homeschool Blog Award, one of my prizes, was the Stewardship Math program. I had been debating purchasing it at the last two homeschool conferences I attended, but I didn't need it yet. I have learned my lesson on overbuying curriculum. I was practicing passive thrift waiting for something. My boys will be ready for it in the fall. Here is the loveliness that arrived on my doorstep...

I knew I was getting the set of books.

The bag was a surprise, I love surprises!
The folks at Math-U-See must know I have bag lady issue. I currently own about 30+ bags and it is never enough. You will see me proudly toting this puppy to my next homeschool gathering. It will make a great conversation starter. Unless they read this post.

I am thrilled that we will have a chance to cover consumer math from a biblical perspective. Thank you Math-U-See for the Stewardship Program!

I am also terrible about writing thank you notes! I have not sent out thank you notes for the last 2 birthday parties I've had for the kids. Even though I feel really guilty about it, I still haven't sent out the notes!!!

I am also a huge fan of those canvas bags. Love it! :)

I too love MUS...I haven't looked into the Stewardship program.

Can I send a blog thank you to friends for baby gifts??? With the arrival of the 5th, its much harder this time around. :)
