Reflecting on July and Looking Ahead to August

owenandmzee

Today I was reading one of my toddler’s favorite books for the month called Owen and Mzee. It’s a true story of a hippo and a tortoise who become friends after the hippo became separated from his mother after the tsunami in Southeast Asia. Who would of thought that a hippo and a tortoise would or could even become friends? My daughter enjoys seeing these real photographs of this unlikely pair (though she keeps correcting me saying it is a turtle mom, not a tortoise!) and it is a book we read together often.

While reading the book  today, it made me think of friends I never would have met if it weren’t for the internet. Yes, I am thankful for my many online friendship. When I glanced through my stats from last month, I smiled realizing that these sites aren’t just urls to me anymore. These are friends:

Confessions of a Homeschooler
Totally Tots
Homeschool Creations
Mama Jenn
1+1+1=1
Raising Arrows
Living Montessori Now
Heart of the Matter
The Homeschool Village
The Adventures of Bear
Granola Mom 4 God

Looking ahead to August…..

I’ve got several giveaways coming up! If you haven’t entered my craft giveaway, be sure to do so! Who couldn’t use some free craft supplies? I have a  Q&A plus book giveaway scheduled with a fun early childhood educator, a curriculum giveaway, and a dvd giveaway all coming soon.

Hopefully I’ll get some homeschool-related posts up---like what we are doing (I have no clue yet!) I’m trying to switch gears from summer to school, but the gears are stuck----in summer! :)

well - sorry Educating Layton didn't make the list but happy The Homeschool Village did. It's sorta like Clark Kent and Superman (I'm Clark Kent)

I guess I should clarify that the sites above were my top 11 referrals for the month. I consider many more of you my friends too!
