Is it just me or is it difficult shopping for your kids for Christmas?
I think it got harder when we started homeschooling.
When my kids were in public school, it was easy because they wanted stuff that all their friends had...
Barbies, Hot Wheels racetracks, etc.
Now....it starts getting weird.
Architecture sets. Fossils. Plasma globes. Electronic ciruit sets. Solar powered stuff. Anything related to historic events. Geography games.
I love it! But then...it's not exactly like you can run to Wal Mart or Toys R Us and get these things. In fact, you start looking at all the junk they sell in stores and see it as...junk.
I love my Rainbow Resource catalogue. It's full of items that will appease my little nerdlings. That and Amazon.com. You can find *anything* there.
How about you? Do your kids want random, hard to find items? What resources do you use to purchase them?
