Thank-you Our Busy Homeschool



This week I received my very first blog award. What made this doubly exciting was that it came from Tristan over at Our Busy Homeschool.

Step 1 You have to thank the person who gave you the award

When I first started homeschooling it was a little overwhelming to say the least. I had a fantastic 'live bodied' mentor in Lucy up the road who made my jump into homeschooling life so much easier. I also found being able to peak in on another Latter Day Saint homeschooling home was fantastic. While finding my feet I 'followed' a lot of Tristan's advice. Investigated a lot of her curriculum choices and found her 'pearls of wisdom' so very helpful. She blog one day about the TOS Homeschool Crew 'try out', so I thought I would give it a go. So here I am sailing along with crew. Anyway, Thank-you Tristan.

Now I have to tell you 7 things about myself


1: I'm a kitchen-appliance-aholic. I love appliances and my friend Kim will testify that I spread that love around. I'm currently in love with my Pressure Cooker which recently multiplied to 2. (large family you know how it is)

2: My side of the bedroom is always messy. My husband & I are like the odd couple (only you older ones will know about that show) and my side is always a mess and his side, which is the half way point down the bed is always perfectly tidy!

3: I love 'kid fun'. I love playing with my kids, games, science stuff, craft, what ever. I love it.

4: I love 'homestorage' stuff. I am a hoarder by nature so the idea of being given the green light to hoard is SO up my ally. Homestorage might be a Mormon term. Click here if you are wondering.
"We encourage members world-wide to prepare for adversity in life by having a basic supply of food and water and some money in savings".

5: I have never read Twilight or Harry Potter. I realize I may be one of the few people on the earth that hasn't but here it is. Tristan may want her award back now.

6: I wear Ugg boots every wear and they should be made legal for church as well because I don't know about your chapel but ours is always freezing.

7: I am madly in love with my husband & kids and am so glad that I will have them for eternity.

Step 3 is to pass this along to blogs I love:
This is the hard part. Of course I would shoot one right back to Our Busy Homeschool. I love these sites all for different reason's.

Tristan said...

Aww, thanks! I'm glad my blog has been helpful. And I love you even if you never read Harry Potter or Twilight. ;-) Just so long as you read something - books are essential to life you know!

Have to say I've never used a pressure cooker, though I'm always up for more appliances!

Congratulations on your award Donna! :-D

I also love kitchen appliances! I too am into food storage!

Don't wear ugg boots but am looking forward to seeing yours! lol

I too love my husband and children!

I too haven't read/seen Harry Potter but....I am slightly embarrassed to admit that I love....twilight. Although in my defence I resisted them for ages and finally gave in about 10 months ago when they read twilight for our ward bookclub. Got hooked then. ~sigh~

Kim said...

Yes to the kitchen appliances! But think how shallow my life was before I met you and was introduced to the wonderful world of electric frypans, and pressure cookers etc. (And you know nothing good can come of me and awards or anything I have to pass on!)

I have never read Twilight or Harry Potter either. You are not alone!
