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.

Very soon I’ll be announcing the biggest thing I’ve ever announced here. Can you guess? Amber and Barb are already in on it!
