5 Minutes for Mom is hosting a series of Mother’s Day giveaways, starting with an Apple iPod Nano that comes inside a box of chocolates!!!!!!! You can get it in silver or pink (which would be my second choice behind the apple green).
Head over to 5 Minutes for Mom for the scoop!
It’s easy to assume that you’ll never actually win anything, but I just found out I won the April Blog Book Tour prize from SheilaWrayGregoire.com! Three books, people! I won three books! Also, in my mailbox today was Visualize World Geography in 7 Minutes a Day: Let Pictography Take you from Clueless to Knowing the World from Tender Heart Press, a prize from the Homeschool Blog Awards. This has to be one of the most amazingly cool things I’ve ever seen. Just look at this:
Outline of the
United Kingdom (UK)
UK’s pictography: Union Jack Rabbit
(actual size in book is 8″ x 10″)
Mnemonic for United Kingdom:
The United Kingdom is depicted as the Union Jack Rabbit, which carries a green Easter egg (Northern Ireland, part of the U.K.) in a basket, and passes them out all around the land in order to unite the kingdom. The United Kingdom’s flag is referred to as the Union Jack.
I certainly wasn’t that innovative when I taught a co-op geography class, and seven minutes a day is music to my ears. Wait, there’s more! In my inbox today was an invitation to choose a free ebook as a prize from Simply Charlotte Mason. Five books in one day! Truly, my cup runneth over. I hope you’ll visit these nice people that I’ve linked to, so I can share the love with those who’ve been so kind.
