It's the height of summer, softball games, swimming, picnics, and hot lazy days are here. I'm starting to plan out my next school year and waiting for IHM conference in a few weeks. I plan on buying several of the items I need at the used book sale. I hope I'm able to get what I want.
This time of year brings up money!! It takes money for curriculum, money for supplies, money to homeschool. Everyone it seems is in the same boat: limited funds to go around. It seems that for some it's tighter then it has been in the passed or a new trend is popping up and I'm just out of the loop.
I have noticed this week at least 3 different homeschooling families started a Go Fund Me page and are asking for money to buy school supplies, buy groceries, build a school house, or whatever else they need. I'm taken back by these fundraiser pages. I never would have thought to start a page asking for money for school supplies, money for groceries, or anything else.
Some will argue that it's no different then public schools doing fundraisers, but to me it seems different. I don't know; something about it just is not sitting right with me. What do you think?
