Blog Party!

I found out about this cool blog party going on at a blog I follow. Since I love getting new followers, new comments and new blogs to follow myself, I thought I'd sneak in the back door and crash the place!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

5 Minutes For Mom apparently throws this party every year and got over 2000 people to join last year! I'm joining with both of my blogs (which is hopefully allowed!).

If you're visiting from the party, HI!

(mini intro) I'm Sam (or Sandra), a homeschooling SAHM. We live in Canada and are fairly new to both blogging and homeschooling! My hubby, Lee, and I have 4 kids between us. His son, Dylan, lives with his mother, my son, Isaac, lives with his father, my daughter Brianna and our daughter Olivia live with us. On this blog I detail our homeschooling journey. I love following new blogs, but, while I read every new update, I'm bad at posting comments (working on that!). I do love getting them though, so feel free!


  1. I'm glad you decided to join in.

    (My UBP blog post is at my book blog 5 Minutes for Books).
