I went to GoodWill this afternoon, looking for a flannel shirt for Monkey to wear tomorrow when he dresses up as Bob the Builder. We'd found the overalls the other day at a different thrift shop & I'll talk to Daddy tonight about raiding a toolbox for a really big wrench. He's got a real hard hat ($6.29 at Home Despot), and if he feels like carrying it around, he's got a toolbox his Daddy gave him. So he'll make a pretty convincing Bob the Builder. In addition to that flannel shirt, I got him 2 other warm shirts. Hopefully they will fit him the whole winter: last year he outgrew his stuff partway through and I had to buy more. This year I bought bigger.
So, here's what I came home with from GoodWill this afternoon:
*3 warm winter shirts
*Desert Giant: the world of the Saguaro Cactus
*The Amazing Impossible Erie Canal
*Bob the Builder: Scoop saves the day
*Bob the Builder: Bob saves the porcupines
*Outside and Inside Snakes
*DK Eyewitness Explorers: Human Body
*DK Eyewitness Explorers: Weather
*DK Eyewitness Explorers: Night Sky
*The Kingfisher Young People's Book of Space (Hardcover & practically brand new)
*The History of Railways.
*a magnetic states puzzle
The Kingfisher book & the shirts were more than half of the cost, but it all came to about $24! I'm feeling pretty good about that! I've been so frustrated by library fines lately... maybe eventually I can have my own "library," with NO FINES.
