Reflecting on July and Looking Ahead to August
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
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! :)
