New Beginnings Day 1
As in all things, when one thing comes to an end, there is usually a new path to enter. When we started schooling our children, it was with the intention to do it one year at a time. There were times when it was a challenge, but mostly it was full of fun and learning on their part and mine. My children very quickly overcame my abilities, and so entered tutors, and classes to complete the required areas. The progression was one of mother, teacher and now friend. I have learned along with them (but they are still much smarter then I will ever be!).
So now we graduate our youngest son. He has hopes of entering college in the fall. And as time would work out, we are moving from the home we have lived in all these years. One that has been loved and filled with memories, to a new one. It is only about 10 miles from our present house, so I am hoping the move will go quickly and smoothly.
As I mentioned yesterday, I want you to help me celebrate! With a big move ahead of me, it seems like this would be the best time to have a celebration giveaway. Celebrating my blogiversary, which was at the beginning of the year, graduation of my son and ME! And the move to a new home :-)
It is always much more fun to have a giveaway where more people can win a prize. So for the next five days, we will celebrate! For Day One I will give away a copy of "365 Foundation Quilt Blocks" by Linda Causee.
Day One giveaway -I would like to know a little more about you, my bloggy friends! To be entered, leave a comment on this post telling me a little bit about yourself. Start with where are you from? If you have children, what are their ages. I'd love to learn more about all of you out there in blog land! If you are a winner, please be sure I have a way of contacting you. If your email is set for no-reply, be sure to leave an email addy. Remember to write it out with "at" and "dot".
Okay! Let's celebrate!
