Can I just say…I’m slightly, okay more than slighty, JEALOUS of this giveaway? One thing I have dreamed of getting since we began homeschooling was a Microscope! It’s on my wishlist and I hope that one day (soon) we can get one. My oldest absolutely loves all things Science and I just know he would have a blast with a microscope! Not to mention all the things the middles would want to look at under the microscope. And if you’ve been wanting one too…TODAY is your LUCKY DAY!!
