A few things...here is a giveaway that I'm trying to win. I'm DETERMINED to win a giveaway one of these days. Weird,Unsocialized Homeschoolers reviewed the online version of Jumpstart. Tornado loves the JumpStart cd-roms, and after looking around at JumpStart.com, I know the kids would enjoy it, as well. I think it's only $7.99 a month for a family membership.
I love my new camera straps I bought from my photographer friend Karie (who I went to college with). They're much cuter than having Canon across my chest. Check them out here and buy one!
Here's something I was particularly excited about. Those of you who didn't see, Tornado recently celebrated his 9th b-day with a Fetch! Ruff Ruffman party. Fetch! is a fun show on PBS Kids. He LOVES this show and has wanted a Fetch! party for two years. I noticed last week that Ruff Ruffman HIMSELF left a comment on my blog post. Well, it was actually Jim Conroy, who does the voice of Ruffman. An Emmy-nominated actor/writer left a comment on my blog! I figured, at first, it might just be someone like Uncle Andy, leaving a fun message for Tornado. But I googled "Fetch Ruff Ruffman Birthday", and my post came up - as well as another blog about a kid who had a Fetch! party, and he'd left a comment on that one, too. So if it was really him, I just think that was SUPER nice of him to take the time to do that, and you wouldn't believe how much Tornado and I both SQUEALED with delight.
I'm behind on posting about our learning activities, etc. Here are just a couple of "moments" around here.
Dash was getting more familiar with letters by matching the magnetic letters to the flashcards.
