Usually, when I sell off some curriculum, the children celebrate. For science, we have mostly, but not quite, finished But, with the changes in the written planets and all, and that we are just about done, and one other issues, my dh is not a Christian so it was a little awkward if I wanted/needed to play the music and he was around.

So, I figured, we were down to the last few pages, put up an ad to sell it off. Well, I got replies right away. DD is not happy about this. She loves the curriculum, she loves our time together, she loves the music. I have never heard this out of her before! She never complained about doing her work, but, well, she just is not the complaining sort. Well, when I put the ad out, I got responses right away! And it made DD sad! She has been listening to the CD all morning preparing to lose it.

Now what do I do? Do I call the lady back and say opps..sorry...we are keeping it? It's just too good and DD won't let it go? Or just tell dd we can order a copy of the CD and give that to DD and still let the curriculum go?

If it is just the CD she loves mabe "burn" the cd then sell it. Mabe let her choose the next thing to buy. I kinda feel it's out of the question to call her back and say opps..

I think she loves all the activities we have done and such. But..you know..she is getting older and outgrowing the curriculum. Next year, she will either do SOS, Apologia, or go to science class at this wonderful local place..they use BJU.

I would say to get another copy of the CD so that she can still hear the songs, and just explain to her that you have to sell the curriculum for 2 reasons:
1.) She's outgrowing it and
2.) You already told a lady that she could buy it

I guess you could call/email the woman who you sold it to and ask her if you can finish it out and then send it to her, in case she isn't planning on using it right away....

It is "Considering God's Creation" and it really is wonderful.

you can use it for a variety of ages at once and it easily lasts 3 years.
