Blog Love, Baby!

It's Friday. WOOT! It's been a crazy busy week; all good, right? My blog world has been rocking. First off, have you signed up for my current give-away? At least $20 of Organo Gold Coffee and Tea and other great OG stuff that will rock your socks off. My friends at work are drinking it and they all feel so great that a cleaning frenzy has ensued! My German Grandmother, whose adage was truly, Cleanliness is next to Godliness, would be proud!
It's been 5 Days of Homeschooling Essentials. 89 of us have teamed up to bring you resources and inspiration, such as

Why didn't I focus on curriculum you ask, while talking about Homeschooling Essentials? Because every Monday of this month, I've been participating in the Virtual Curriculum Fair, along with 28 blogger buddies: 

This coming Monday, we'll all be talking ART. I'm a closet arteest and this topic is near and dear to my heart. Stop back by for some great resources! 
I'm co-hosting another great Face Book party - February 13 at 9 p.m. EST, along with Sandra at Learning Little Lovies. What started small has grown and we are busy collecting amazing prizes and resources for you! If you aren't on the Golden Grasses FB page- go sign-up so you don't miss anything! 

In between it all we did get some school done. Famous Men of Modern Times is our current history read-aloud. I'll be sad when the series is over. We might just start it again! Flower is finished with Saxon 6/5 and about done with Perplexors D and First Language Lessons IV. Man, there is just such great curriculum out there these days! Cub finished Learn Math Fast Algebra I and we are going through Saxon Algebra 1/2 to grab out some of the geomtry stuff. LMF Alg II coming right up! I'll be posting my review of LMF Alg I and II, along with a give-away of LMF 1-IV and LMF 5-6 to 2 lucky GG winners!!
Cub has been reading The Flying Ensign- another fantastic read by Bethlehem Books. Flower is still working through The Samurai's Tale and both of them are cramming in Calvin and Hobbes whenever possible.

I would share my current GoodRead but I haven't read anything longer than a blog post, training manual or magazine article for weeks. I've watched a few movies, but nothing note-worthy. I need ideas for stuff that is solid fluff- both books and movies. Got anything for me?
Feeche is busy reading, writing and doing 'rithmatic. He is a happy, happy, happy man, deep into college classes.

Did you know I was multi-lingual?
Lingua-love- we have a Manga Language review coming up! The kids have chosen languages that are  probably not in the TOP10 of spoken languages world wide, but we are excited to bring you another great review!
