It's a Party!!!!

I'm not much of a party girl. I'm more of a "small gathering" kind of girl, but an ONLINE party where I don't actually have to make small talk with anyone? THAT I can do LOL!! Click on the banner above to join in the fun.

And to those stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere for the first time, WELCOME!! Broad Horizons School is the name I chose for our homeschool. One of the first things that led our family to choose homeschooling was the idea of being able to broaden our horizons (and yes, I plan to learn right along with my kids thankyouverymuch!). To learn in hands-on ways. To allow each child to explore the things that interest them.

Record keeping isn't my strong point (and at this point, isn't required by the state, yet). I set up this blog to have an informal, fun, way to keep track of what we do and share it with those who are interested.

As a side benefit (or something) I also use this blog to share my organizing/housekeeping successes (and failures). And share the things I'm doing to save money, and be healthier, and be "kind to the earth" (as my kids would say). And just generally babble about whatever crosses my mind.

So come in, grab a cup of coffee or tea, have a look around, and stop back often.

The Ultimate Blog Party also has tons of great prizes, some of my favorite include:

#7 Bead Dangle Photo Tile Necklace
#70 Chocolate!!!
#11 Good For The Kids Gift Certificate

And so many more (100, 101, 59, 60, 117, 39, 55, 62, 103, 104, 105 , 80, 81, 52, 87, 34, 76, 77, 48, 19, 49)
