Thanks for the Encouragement!

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that two kind bloggers honored me this past week.

Thanks go to The Schoolhouse at Deer Run for this first award. I always enjoy dropping by Torie's to see what she and her precious boys are up to - including the wonderful Bible lessons they do together.

Now I get to share the encouragement with some of my favorite bloggers. (There is no way I could list all of the blogs I enjoy. There are so many that give me ideas and inspiration.)

Rose Cottage

His Wonderful Works

A Pondering Heart

Blog, She Wrote

Here are the Rules:
1. Add the award logo to your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you. (That's me!;-)
3. Give the award to other blogs. (However many you choose!)
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message (in the form of a comment) for your award recipients on their blogs.

I also want to say thank you to The Tie That Binds Us for this "Excellence in Blogcasting" award. It's a treat to visit Brenda's blog to see the wonderful art and nature studies she does with her children. She is also the owner of the Homeschool History Buffs Carnival, which is not to be missed!

The rules for this one are simple. Just nominate a few blogs that you enjoy and highlight them on your blog. I receive encouragement and inspiration from so many blogs, but here are a few more of my favorites:

In the Sparrow's Nest

Handbook of Nature Study

School for Us

Our Journey Westward

Isn't homeschool bloggy land a fun and friendly place? :)

I hope that you enjoy visiting these Moms' blogs and gleaning some of their great ideas!


  1. Thank you, Shannon! You're so sweet - and it just so happens I think your blog is excellent, too!

  3. Shannon, I popped over to see the CM carnival...and I had to tell you that I love your blog header and background! Your colors are SO pretty...I love it all! :) I need to add you to my list of favorite CM blogs so I will remember to come back and visit!!

  4. Thank you shannon! I have not had much time to blog lately so this makes want to get back into it. :-) I also love your blog. I visit it way often that I get to leave comments.
