I try to update my items as quickly as possible when I can, but I cannot commit to unlimited lifetime updates of units. I will do my best, but I am a full-time teacher and mom to a young child. Please note that the purchase is for the CURRENT curriculum (as of Sept 2021). If future updates are made they will be added as a 'bonus', but I cannot commit to lifetime updates. Thank you for understanding :)
