It is really hard to choose but here are my choices:
Bonnie of Clyde at www.fran-bonnieofclyde.blogspot.com - Fran and myself have recently become cyber friends. What drew me in to her blog was the fact that she lives on a boat full time and lives in the UK. I have a weakness for blogs found outside of the US.
The Education of G and F @ www.grannyteacher.blogspot.com - I love reading about this young grandmother homeschooling her two grandchildren.
Joyful Mother of Six Children @ www.joyfulmotherofsixchildren.blogspot.com - I have followed this blog for a good while. She has alot on her plate but handles it with grace. Love reading about the co-op and FIAR classes.
Life at Cobble Hill Farm @ www.lifeatcobblehillfarm.blogspot.com - We have in common our love of all things chicken and homesteading.
Little Men in My Library @ www.homeschoolblogger.com/littlemen/ - I have followed this blog almost from the very beginning. Again my fascination with blogs in other countries and this one lives in Australia.
Thanks again to Once Upon a Family for the award. I enjoy blogging and meeting new people. Please take a minute to visit the above blogs.

History and Science here at home 10:00 - 12:00
Lunch 12:00 - 1:00
Middle School chemistry class 1:30 - 3:30
Beading Class at the library 4:00 - 6:00
Dinner out 6:00 - 6:45
Youth Group for Grace 7:00 - 8:30
Bible Study Group for me and Scott 7:00 - 8:00
When I say that it didn't start out this way, normally I would never schedule this much in one day. But here is what transpired to change the plan. Grace's Chemistry class is normally on Monday but the teacher asked to switch it to Wednesday due to a doctor's appt. The beading class is a one time thing and we love the lady who will be teaching it. She retired last year from the library and we don't get to see her much. So we really don't want to miss it.

- History - The Golden Goblet (Ancient Egyptian History), Bible, Oxford's First Ancient History, and Pharaoh's of Ancient Egypt (Of course not all on the same day)
- Literature - Right now she is finishing up The Hobbit
- Science - Galen and the Gateway to Medicine
Even though she is reading quite a bit each day I still want us to enjoy some fun books together. About three days a week I read several chapters from a pleasure book for us. Since the beginning of the summer we have been working our way through Peter and the Starcatchers series. Today we finished the third book Peter and the Secret of Rundoon. This series takes you through all the back history of Peter Pan. The authors take alot of liberties with explaining where all the characters came from and what their back stories all. It is all great fun. Great series! Can't recommend it enough. Grace loves read aloud time. She says the reason she enjoys me reading the story is because I read each character with inflection and she can really visualize the story. She normally does her drawing art challenge for the day while I am reading. We have two more books in the series to finish before jumping to something else. I am looking at a series that starts with Theodosia and Th Serpents of Chaos. This series is about a young girl whose parents are archaeologists that specialize with ancient Egyptian artifacts. This would actually go great with our year long study in History of the beginning of history through Ancient Egypt. The other books in the series include: Theodosia and The Staff of Osiris, Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus, and Theodosia and the Last Pharaoh. So I guess the meaning behind this post is to remind everyone that it doesn't matter how old your children are, reading aloud to them is a special time that you both can still enjoy. I plan on doing read alouds with Grace until she graduates.
