Free Stuff - Clothes, Petsitting, Math

October 3rd, 2013 at 05:04 pm

Part 1 - Clothes for Free

When I drop F off at school I often stand around in the hall and talk to the other parents. We're a tight-knit bunch, the 3rd Grade parents! (There are only 19 kids per grade, so you get pretty close).

Today I was talking to J who informed me that she had a bag of clothes in the car that no longer fit her daughter and asked if I'd like to look through them. Yes!

So we scored about 4 pairs of leggings and two shirts (I was selective, knowing that F is sort of picky). All great condition. Very cute, and exactly F's style! She likes to wear leggings. Every day. (But you know, I'm a creature of habit, too).

This is an advantage of having a daughter who is smaller than the other kids in her class!

Part 2 - Pet-Watching Swap

My friend G who is in my knitting group is at a wool festival this weekend (so glad I'm not there - it's just a giant temptation to buy yarn I don't need - plus I'd miss F's soccer game which would be sad). So I'm watching her pets - yay! Why am I so glad about this? Because we have a swap! I watch her pets and she watches ours. She lives close by, and her pets are cute! And we don't pay for pet-sitting.

Part 3 - Online Math Game

I found this online math game http://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/math-trainer-multiply.html for F to practice her multiplication tables. She loves it (she loves to do timed activities)!

    I need to swap pet sitting with someone! Free clothes are great when you can come by them.

    The pet-sitting has been a great arrangement! We both have a combo of cats and dogs. The free clothes were sort of a fluke - we got lots of free clothes when F was a baby, but not as many now (the kids mostly wear them out before they grow out of them at this age)... but, that said, this particular kid has a HUGE wardrobe!

    You might want to check out sumdog.com also for Math games. I have my students 3rd - 8th using it, and they love it!
