Dollar Tree...Oh, how I love thee!

So, I broke my own record for amount of money spent at Dollar Tree today.  I spent 3 times the amount I normally do.  I went in with the intent to find a couple of non-candy items to put into the Easter baskets, and some educational wall charts.  And boy, did I find wall charts.  We ended up bringing home charts for:
space, the planets, addition tables, subtraction tables, a calendar, numbers and holidays for said calendar, plus headers for it, parts of speech, today is/tomorrow will be, and today's weather is/tomorrow's weather will be...
And, my favorite part, a bunch of good books, especially board books for the baby.  We got several that are Bible stories, and several that have to do with manners, sharing, etc.  Oh, and some sight word cards, one set each for pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade.  I figured that even if we are not using them right this second, for a dollar, it can't hurt to have them on hand!  My parents have this fabulously long, and BARE hallway.  We recently put up Cait's Letter Tree, and it looks so lonely by itself... so it won't be lonely long!  :)  I think my biggest challenge will be figuring out how to get all this stuff to Korea.  Does FedEx have tubes to ship things in?  I can roll the posters, and the rest of it is small enough to fit in my luggage. 

Now, I'm off to go and find some tape to hang these posters with.  I will attempt to get a picture of the hallway once I'm done, if the baby doesn't insist on nursing yet again.  I think his medicine is upsetting his tummy, he keeps grunting alot! 

Oh, and by the way, Turbo Jam is going great!  I have noticed that my jeans today are a bit looser than normal, cause I have to keep hitching them up! :P
