Say that five times real fast!
Anyway, I got a really neat email the other day from Heather, a member of the team that hosts the Homeschool Blog Awards. She was in charge of divvying up the awards that weren't specified. You see, some of the award donations were specified to go to a certain category winner but others weren't. Those that weren't were divided evenly between all of the winners. Here is part of her email that explained her creative method of choosing who won what:
Attached is a Graphic that my children and I made when we did the Blog Awards. Each blogger was assigned an animal to represent them and we wrote out the prizes on slips of paper and drew for the animals. The kids enjoyed taking photos of the animals and watching mom create graphics. We would love it if you would use the graphic in your post when you get your prizes or just telling about what you won. It would make my kids feel special. :) drawing for the Homeschool
A note to Heather's kids:
Thanks for helping out and allowing your mom to use your animals for the drawing. I thought that Mr. Tiger was perfect for my Families Again blog. My kids thought it was kind of neat too!
From the Whole Tinkel Family.
PS. It's ok to laugh, we are used to people thinking our last name is funny !
And now to announce the prizes. At the time of this post, for some reason the Home School Blog Award website was having some difficulty. I wasn't able to access it to get links to all of these great companies. As soon as I'm able, I will post the links so that you can visit their sites. Here they are:
