I am not one to blow my own horn, but I wanted to mention this because I need to acknowledge the people who are so important to this blog: My readers.
This past September I was nominated by one of my readers for Alasandra's Homeschool Blog Awards. This was an unexpected honor, and I'm always very grateful to have such an appreciative audience for my comics and musings.
So it was a great surprise for me to learn I was also nominated in four categories of the Homeschool Blog Awards. I am humbled by your appreciation for my little corner of the blogosphere. These are the categories where you can find my blog:
Best Homeschool Mom Blog
Best Artistic Content Blog
Best Super-Homeschooler Blog
Best Nitty Gritty Homeschool Blog
Wow! Can you feel me blushing? I'm also amused to find I'm nominated as both a Super Homeschooler (I think I need a cape and a cool secret identity) and a Nitty Gritty Homeschooler. As I understand it, a Nitty Gritty Homeschooler is one who tells it like it is and isn't afraid to show her mistakes. Sort of the opposite of a Super Homeschooler. Maybe my humility is my super homeschooler superpower.
I am honored by all of my nomination categories. It is a real boost as I try to figure out what I accomplished for my first quarter reports. Can I count all that time with my relatives as Spanish cultural immersion? If we are taking care of a stray cat who has already ripped out her stitches from spaying twice, should I list that under science or health education? And is there a way I can count all those hours my son played Pirates of the Caribbean online with his dad?
I want every homeschooler reading this to know that you are a Super Homeschooler! I am no different from you! Every one of you has taken the leap to keep your kids home and educate them in your own unique way. We all trip our way along on this wonderful life adventure and it is comforting to know we have friends on the journey. My success is your success.
