We Won Best Homeschool Business Blog!

We Won Best Homeschool Business Blog!
I'm so excited to announce that I have won the Homeschool Blog Awards Best Curriculum or Business Blog 2009

Heather notified me that I had won, and said:
Attached is a Graphic that my children and I made when we did the stuffed animal drawing for the Homeschool Blog Awards. Each blogger was assigned an animal to represent them and we wrote out the prizes on slips of paper and drew for the animals. The kids enjoyed taking photos of the animals and watching mom create graphics. We would love it if you would use the graphic in your post when you get your prizes or just telling about what you won. It would make my kids feel special.

Isn't this a cute little stuffed animal?  I have to admit, it did give my husband and I the giggles, thinking that I was represented by a COW!!!  LOLOL!!!   But it's adorable!    Here are the prizes that I won:


  • 25$ Amazon Gift Cert

  • Red River Paper 40$

  • Patchwork Quilt Tic Tac Toe

  • 20$ in MindBites Lessons

  • Heart of the Matter Online Homeschool Conference Tickets for 2010

  • The Old Schoolhouse - 1 Year Magazine Subscription

It was fun to be able to participate, and I'm thrilled to win!  We work very hard on our blog, posting almost every day, and it was so nice to feel supported and encouraged.  Thank you to everyone who voted for us!

I've recently been connecting with friends on LinkedIn.  I invite you to send me an invitation if you want to connect with my business.

Blog and Newsletter Contest Winners!

Blog and Newsletter Contest Winners!
Julie in Texas won my blog contest this month!

Julie said, "Thank you so much!  I appreciate your generous give away.  After reading the description of your audio course, I knew I wanted to hear it, so I'm thrilled that I'm the winner!"

Julie has been homeschooling 9 years, and she has two boys in grades 6 and 9.  Her favorite advice to younger homeschoolers is: "It's hard to fix something that isn't broken." She confessed that deciding to continue homeschooling high school was a big decision last spring. She add, "However, with help and wisdom from "completed" homeschoolers like you, who have not only finished, but finished well, I'm encouraged about our journey too."

Audrey in Pennsylvania won my newsletter forwarding contest this month!

Audrey said, "Yippee!!  Every day is a blessing, but this is a special day. God bless you and your efforts. Thank you." Audrey is homeschooling a 10th grade son, 8th grade daughter, and 3rd grade daughter.  Her husband says their cat LOVES homeschooling, and probably has a Master's Degree!  Her suggestion is "Birthdays are a holiday for the children and I. That is our way to let home school rule our school calender."

That sounds like a GREAT way to stay sane while homeschooling.  I did that too, in our homeschool!

Here's a nice photo with me and my SHS Loopies.  Kathy and Cindy have been my friends for years!  Thank you for all of you who have voted for my blog today.  We are in a very tight contest and really need your support.  Thanks!!
