Barefoot in Suburbia

Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

The supplies have arrived! February 28, 2010

In order to begin Monkey’s homeschooling, we used part of our tax return to outfit her with the items she’d need for a Montessori-based education for the next 2 1/2-3 years (plus Bitty Bug will get to use them as well.  And as an added bonus, Jedi knows how to use all of the material, so he teaches Monkey how to use them as well).  Today, everything arrived–all 12 boxes of it!  Of course, we’re in the process of moving to our new house, so we can’t really keep everything out of the boxes.

I did take almost everything out for a quick look (except for the bead cabinet, the map shelf, and a couple things that were on backorder…).  We ordered everything from Kid Advance, and I must say, I’m really impressed!  Everything is really nice and well made!

As you can see, it’s a *lot* of stuff.  After letting the kids have a quick look, I packed most of it away until after we move.  I did keep out the pink tower, brown stairs, long rods, and the animal puzzle cabinet to work with until then.   Monkey’s really looking forward to getting started tomorrow!
