    We are a new to homeschooling family, and just about a month ago I made the decision to use the Rod and Staff Curriculum. My husband and I live on a tight budget most of the time, so I have been trying to get most of the curriculum text books off eBay at a used price so we won't have to buy brand new. A years worth of curriculum per grade runs around $200, so whatever textbooks we can get used, great!

    I had found second grade science for 99 cents on ebay, inquired to the seller what shipping would run us, and while we were debating on bidding or not, a problem arose and she was not able to sell us the set. This wonderful lady felt so badly about what happened that she went above and beyond herself and sent us all the Rod and Staff materials she had left FREE!

    This woman is a true blessing and I hope she is repaid for her kindness ten fold!

    [​IMG] That's great! I know that for myself being able to give to some one that truly appreciates it is such a joy that it is repayment enough for me.

    I sure love hearing stories like this one. I know there are so many good people out there, it just seems that we only ever hear about the rotten apples. I'm happy for you. What a kind, wonderful woman.
