Blogging With a Purpose

Simply Stork
has given me this blogger award, which I greatly appreciate! :-D

I would like to pass this award on to some friendly folks who I enjoy reading daily...they all have blogs that are not just time killers but are packed full of information as well as uplifting tips and trades.

Shelley at The Wood Between the Worlds
...Shelley is so honest. I just love her. She makes me feel normal. There is no fakiness, no ulterior motive. She shares her struggles, her joys, and her convictions. If you need someone to cry with or someone to laugh with, see Shelley.

Jerri at The Dalrymple School Among Thorns...her site brings you through a day in the life of a homeschool family. Heart warming pictures and family activities..I always come away smiling :o)

October at I Was Just Thinking...she is always active for a cause. She tells it to you straight. Need some conviction? Some optimism? Some encouragment to make a difference? Visit Tob!

Ann-Marie at The Left-Handed Rabbit...She takes you around with her, and you learn about things as she learns about things...Her writing is incredibly entertaining, just hilarious. It's a wonderful place to visit.

Suzanne at Live Fully, Laugh Often, Love Always...Suzanne must have the funniest kids on the planet. I wonder where they get it from? Suzanne is one of the wittiest people I've ever met. Need a good laugh and some cheering up? Take a hop, skip, and jump over to her place!

The rules are:
1. Awarded parties must nominate five people who have not received the award.

2. The blogs that receive the award must serve some purpose.

3. In their post about the award they need to link back to the original entry.

Thank you ladies for your wonderful sites and for bloggin with purpose...

Awww...thank you so much, Wendy! Special thanks for not seeing my blog the way I do...the rambling rants of a homeschooling mom on the edge!!! ;0)

Aww, shucks. *blushing*

Thanks, Wendy. I second Jerri (who, by the way, shares the same last name of one of my favorite fictional heroes - Quintilian Dalrymple) with my thanks that you don't see my blog as the "annoying one that totally copied my sleepover post!"

Thanks! This left-handed rabbit considers you a dear friend!

Hi Wendy :), I just popped over to greet you and then I saw the Giant discussion on your Mormon encounter. W-O-W ! I quite enjoyed that volley. I thought you did very well explaining your beliefs as did some of the others. I am not good in those situations so I appreciated that you had your points down so clearly. I'm going to mark your blog so I can keep up with you and read about all of your homeschooling adventures. I'm a seasoned wannabe(baha-my oldest is in 4th and I'm still only reading about it-yep, I'm full of beans). Catcha later!

the shan,
Why thank you!
And homeschooling is certainly hardwork...and it can drive you plain bonkers sometimes, to be honest. But it's well worth every minute. If fear is the only thing holding you back, you could always do a summer test run and see how it goes. It's certianly not for everyone, but there are those of us who couldn't live any other way! :-)
