Thanks Chrisb!


Isn't this a cute award? Chris over at MsCellania gave it to me. Of course it was like a week ago so I am a obviously really a bad blogger but I thank her anyway. This is what she said

Terri over at My Four Kids who had now been in Alaska a year. It must be the grandmother in me because I love to see how her children are getting on in their new life. She also lives in beautiful place so I get to enjoy some spectacular photos.

I can't believe we have been here for over a year now. It actually shocks me to hear it sometimes. Most of the time really it seems we have lived here much longer. We were told by our pastor the other day that we don't seem like new people here either and that we have really blended well into the community. The kids are doing great also and having a lot of fun with new activities we didn't do before we moved. I also have to thank her for her comment on my photos. I try, the beauty of where we live is the big reason they look great sometimes.

So I am to choose 7 bloggers to pass this on to. That is a hard thing to do. I love the blogs that I read even though I have been terrible at commenting lately. I've been very busy with the kids!

So here are the 7 that I could narrow it down to....

1. M over at And then there were two she has 2 very cute little kiddos and this last year her son Liam was diagnosed with Autism. I've been reading and chatting with her occasionally over the last year. She is a great advocate for both of her children and it reminds me of the challenges we had getting Izzaks diagnosis for his problems and the challenges we have faced.

2. The Giants Fan at the Sunny Little blog well because I love her and she loves my kids. And yes Maddie is growing up way to fast! (responding to her comment on another one of my posts.

3. Squishy Tushy I love to hear her updates on her kids and how she tells stories about the things they do and say. The kids are adorable and she takes fabulous photos. Her little girl is gorgeous!

4. Emma at A Question of Sanity cause I can totally relate.... We both have 4 kids and that is sometimes all it takes to lose your sanity. She doens't seem to be afraid to talk about anything and sometimes I wish I could do that

5. Becky at Peppermint Tea because she is starting to post again and I really really missed her!

6. Debbie at A Step at a Time She is a home schooler also and I like to read about her stories of teaching her children. Actually all the home school bloggers are a bit of an insperation to me since most have been at it longer then I have and it really is a hard job but very rewarding at the same time.

7. Heather at The Zoo we started emailing shortly after we met through our blogs and so I love to see how she and her girls are doing.

Okay I stuck to the 7. Like I said it is hard to choose....
I will post more photos soon. We are try to get our schedules down for home schooling all 4 of the kids this year and the kids wanted to learn a foreign language so they chose German. I took 3 years when I was in high school so I thought it would be a fun one to try. We are using Rosetta Stone and have only done a couple of lessons but has been going pretty well so far. Maybe I can get Maddie on tape sometime so you can hear her. She still has some sounds she doesn't do real well in her regular speech and they come out in her German as well so it is cute.

So would you recommend the Rosetta Stone program for German? I would like to try to learn German myself. I have been looking at Unforgettable Languages and Rosetta also.
