Meet My Swap Sister!

Last year, I read about this really cool homeschool swap program that was going on over at HSBA. It was later in the year and I was not able to get in on the fun, but THIS year, I was so excited to know that I actually got in on time.

So I would like you all to meet my swap sister, Kris. Many of you probably already know her if you read her blog, Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers (I LOVE her blog title). She is the coolest homeschool mom I know ( and I know lots of them).

The way the swap works, is each month, I get a package in the mail from her. I also get to mail her a package as well. Nothing big and expensive, but just a little gift to let each other know that you are appreciated and that you are being prayed for. Here is a photo of what I got this week in the mail:

It was an awesome gift! I got Sharpie markers which I go through like CRAZY, my favorite candy of all time--Starbursts, a pack of Post-It-Notes which I use all the time, a devotional book for moms, some lotion, AND my FAVORITE thing is a "Honk if you Homeschool" sticker. I have always wanted one of those stickers, but have never been able to find them anywhere!
Kris, thanks so much for my gift for August! You should be getting yours any day now!
If you have never signed up for something like this, may I suggest it to you? It is very fun and rewarding!

Yay! I'm glad you got the gift and that you enjoyed it. I *did* mean to take the price sticker off the book, though. Pardon my faux pas. ;-) I almost kept the markers for myself. lol

LOL, Kris... that you forgot to remove the price tag (which I recognize from where you must've bought it!) ;)

I didn't even know they made "Honk if you Homeschool" stickers... that's how "out of the loop" I am. :)

Thanks for sharing what you received, Jennifer!
