I also picked up a couple of miscellaneous items...but I am pleased to say that I stuck to my list.
After speaking with one vendor (and veteran homeschooling mom) I decided against adding a spelling program for now, we'll continue to work on copywork and revisit spelling when planning his third grade year.
I was not able to find a copy of StartWrite, so I plan on ordering that program on-line at some point.
There are still some things on my list that I was not able to purchase this time around, so they will remain on the list for our next convention - less than 2 weeks away :)
Oh, and in case you were wondering if the guys found anything interesting at the convention...
yep, my son is the proud owner of his first civil war style cap gun!
