As I was going through the books one at a time and pricing them, I was overwhelmed with all the memories associated with them. Especially all the books we read for history, using the TruthQuest Guides. When they were younger, we used Beautiful Feet study guides. What good memories I have of reading these books aloud and the children working on notebooks, projects, speeches, etc. I'm so thankful that I spent the time to have a home library while we were home schooling. It really was a blessing to be able to hand one of the kids a book on whatever subject they were interested in at the moment!
As of right now, I only packed up most of our science and about one-fourth of our history books. And about one-fourth of the fiction books. I haven't looked through all our picture books but I know I'll be saving a lot of those. Lord willing, I will read those to grandchildren one day!
