I gave DH the go ahead for a $75 gadget today. He has had massive overtime this month and feeling really bummed about being away so much/being so tired from working so much/etc. He looked like a school boy shopping for a gadget... it was such a treat for him! So far this month DH has brought in $700+ extra from overtime for snowball/savings. I say a $75 gadget is well earned.
Then we sat down and discussed homeschooling option. It's a go so I need to figure out a budget for that, though it wont come close to private school tuition costs. I'm excited about tailoring their education to their interests and learning styles...I think it's great experience as well (I'm an early childhood education major).
