    The gnome pattern is back! I went looking for it last year, and couldn’t find it, but this year, she’s listed it on Ravelry and giving it away free on her blog.

    Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful book lists. My daughters and I have read so many new books courtesy of your recommendations. The best is yet to come when my daughters (13, 11 and 9) discover on Christmas day that the Betsy and Tacy books that they’ve longed to read are back! A wonderful secret that I also discovered on this site!

    Oh, that’s funny! I’m also homeschooling 6, although I think mine are a little older- 7 to 18, and married to Scott also!

    That’s so funny, Lissa….I came here about a week ago, looking for your “Fun Things to Buy Instead of Curriculum” post from awhile ago:

    ….and I came across this post too, and ended up clicking on some of the links from this “Gifts-Master List” post.

    Found the links quite helpful…though if it were being used by a grandparent or family friend the most obvious gift has been overlooked…

    A gift certificate to any bookstore! 🙂 My kids ( 5 and 8) spend hours pouring over the possibilities when presented with the chance to select their own!! Wishlists are always long, but plucking the perfect title with their own money is a gift in itself!

    Another hit in our home this year is the new Little Traveler’s dvd on Iraq. http://www.thelittletravelers.com/dvd.htm
