No, not this year. We have decided that we enjoy working with our own eclectic curriculum. Adding, selling, creating or improvising as we go along - no pricey boxed sets. Our science center, zoo, museum memberships are paid up. There aren't any big purchases that we have in mind just yet. 

Next year I think we will. We'll probably set it aside to pay for some different day camps in elective areas like music or science. Also, buy a microscope.

We are hoping to get some stuff for the "classroom" for organization and such to try and make things smoother on me. We also are thinking of putting in a deck and out fitting it with a white board, and other weather proof things in the back where it is covered since during the cool mornings or while I am gardening we can just take school outside.

Awesome! We, also, buy Zoo and COSI (science) memberships, but we usually do it with taxes. 8)

Home Depot sells something called Cheap White Board and it's like $11 for 8' long piece of white board. 8)

 I wish...but no...we are most likely going to pay off the last of our debts (minus the houses). Hopefully getting all that out of the way will at least let us be able to save towards next years stuff

Maybe a little of it.  I plan to start buying a little at a time until I have everything I need.

I'm always picking up little things I think will help us in school.

Most years yes, but this year I'm putting a deposit down on braces for my second born, my tax return will be spent on expensive needs like that.
