So Blessed!

I am so excited, I almost can't even believe it. This morning, we went to a yard sale at a local art center where my husband teaches music. There is a Montessori school on the same property, so I was hoping that maybe, just maybe, I would find some items for our home classroom. Well, as I was getting excited over a 10 cent bag of clothespins for the kids to hang their art with, I spotted a set of Montessori geography maps! I ran over there to get a closer look, and the maps were actually from Montessori-n-Such! The same maps I've been wanting for ever! I already had their world map in our 6-9 classroom, and now this set included Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, South America and the U.S.A. It didn't come with the cabinet and is missing North America, but for $20 for the set, I can't complain! There were maybe 5 puzzle pieces missing all together, so I'm hoping to contact Montessori-n-Such to see if they have replacement parts. I also found a perfect Nienhuis Sandpaper globe for.... 50 cents! I was hoping they would have more Montessori stuff, but I have to say, I am extremely pleased and feel very blessed to have found the maps and globe. Thank you once again dear Lord for taking care of us. I feel so very blessed!
