Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award

Yay! I can’t believe I was nominated for a blog award! (To be honest, I didn’t think I had the following 🙂 ). Thanks, Ruth, for the nomination. I feel humbled and honoured. As I’ve mentioned before,, the idea behind this blog is to create a record of our home education journey, and living life on a shoe string budget, generally. I want to be able to look back and see how I’ve grown, and hopefully help others along the way. Plus, I’ve always wanted to be a writer and now I can sort of claim to be one. To steal from Ruth’s great blog:  I hope and pray that our simple comings and goings, ups and downs and journey of faith lead you closer to the God who is Love!

The rules for accepting this award are:

  • Thank the award giver(s) and link back to them in your post
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Pass this award along to 15 or 20 bloggers you read and admire
  • Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award

I’ve thanked Ruth 🙂
