Walk with me!

So I don't know if I mentioned it here, but I was offered a spot on The Old Schoolhouse's Review Crew for 2010. What does this mean? Throughout the year I'll be sent curriculum that I'll use on my three wonderful guinea pigs (and Ben thought he was the only one....) and then I'll write online reviews here at my blog. It should prove to a

dd a new dimension to our homeschooling year. I'm excited about the opportunity to add something new and exciting to our schooling.

One of the members of the Review Crew had a great idea for a Blog Walk to the new crew member's blogs. I just learned (thank you, Lexi!) that my blog as in this week's walk! No wonder I've had so many comments here! Thanks, ladies! You are bringing back life to very lonely blog; last year seemed crazy and it fell to the bottom of the To Do pile!

I really love the colors of my blog -- and I LOVE my dandelions. However, I'm experimenting with a new blog over at wordpress, because I just cannot get this blog to do some of the things I want it to do. We'll see, though, what happens as the summer progresses.

Here's the other blogs on the walk this week:


2. Alexis Green's Pink & Orange Coffee
3. Alina Neuberger's Live, Laugh, Learn!
4. Amanda Bowen's Mrs. Mandy's Musings
5. Amber Hockman's The Fantastic Five
6. amberschoessow's Refined Metals Academy
7. Amy Henn's Just A Moment in Time
8. Angela Greenwell's Providence Farm
9. Angela Richter's My Journey
10. Angie Wright's Petra School

I'm off for a stroll now!

Thanks for the shoutout! Love the colors of your blog. I have worked with Wordpress and Blogspot. I actually like blogspot better for the java functions. :) I use Windows Live Writer to work it all out. :) Glad to get to know you and your boys!

Hi, I am stopping by from TOS Crew-Older group. I do really like the colors on your blog quite a bit! All boys! I have an 11 year old boy as well (and a 9 year old). I also have a 13 year old girl.

I've been blogging for over 2 years and I've found that growing my blog has been a slow and steady process.

I'm following you now! If you have time, stop by and visit me at http://tobebusyathome.blogspot.com

Thanks!
Samantha

You're my first Blog to Walk to. I love your color scheme. I'm working on my blog (which is also on blogger) to try and make it more of what I'd like to see. Yours is even more customized then mine. Glad to meet some more "new" crew mates. Look forward to checking in on your blog throughout the weeks.

Pretty layout! I'm looking forward to getting to know you this year. ;-) (FM Lisa from ME)

Alane,

I think you will really like the flexibility of Wordpress vs. Blogspot. You have a beautiful site. It is the internal stuff that gets frustrating with Blogspot. Good Luck, let me know if you need anything. With Wordpress you will need to get your own domain. I would not recommend the free site because you will find the same frustration.

It was great reading your blog. Came over from the TOS Crew. I loved your ideas on just spending time w/ your little one.. just doing things at his age.. Love it. I know what you mean about only having them at this age once. They are growing fast. My youngest is already 8 1/2.. I know how time flies.. :) Looking forward to getting to know you this year.
