Homeschool Science Give-Away

30 Sep

Well, I have had some recent technical difficulties, but I think I am now ready to do the give-away I promised in my last post.

 

Exploring Creation 3 Book Give-Away

Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day, Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day & Exploring Creation with Botany

Last year another blogger graciously sent us the “Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day” book to use in our homeschool. Since this blogger was so nice to us, I thought I would pass the book along (as well as two other Apologia Science books).

As I already said, I have been having technical difficulties, so we are going to do this give-away the “old-fashioned” way. To be considered, you must follow my blog as well as leave a comment on this post.

To make it a little more fun, I don’t want random comments; instead, comment with the answer to this two part question: If you could rename any animal, which animal would it be and what would be the new name?

Let’s see if the homeschool parents can be as creative as the students (or ask your kids for a good answer to the question).

Please feel free to share this give-away throughout the week. This will end at 10pm CST Friday October 4. I will only count comments added by this time. I will announce the winner by the following Monday.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Updates Since I Went in Hiding

17 Sep

I have not posted in a while, and all I can say for myself is I kept meaning to, then I would get distracted. There is always something to clean/organize, or a book I need to read, or (insert excuse here). I have decided that enough is enough though, and I’m going to get back to it.

We have had plenty going on since the last time I posted. Danger Girl did compete in a pageant way back in July. She did not win, but she wants to do it again, so I call that a success.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Danger Girl is also keeping herself busy with karate and soccer. She was very excited because she got to play goalie in a scrimmage the other day. Actually, it was on her birthday, so that was probably part of the excitement. She really wants to be a goalie.

In the next month, she will be participating in another pageant, so be wishing her luck as that approaches. It is a smaller pageant than the one before, so maybe she will place this time.

 

In other news:

I am planning to have a give-away soon, so be checking back to find out more about that.

* Hint- It is a very popular science resource that I happen to have an extra copy of.
