My blog reader was full of posts today about the Blog Party over at 5 Minutes For Mom called Ultimate Blog Party. I of course, went to check it out, and decided to join in the fun. If you like to party and make new friends you have got to head on over there too.
I started my blog in the fall when I "officially" began pre-schooling my daughter at home. I choose the name A Class of Her Own, in honor of my only child. It seems a rare thing to have a home-schooled only child, which brings it's own unique challenges and rewards. Seriously, I know ONE other family of an only child that is home-schooling.
I try to post a weekly wrap-up of our letter of the week activities, and I love sharing what we are reading each week as well. You can so our progress so far here. I try to keep the blog school related, but sometimes I include other goodies about my sweet daughter. If you look around I'm sure you will see a Tiny Talk post or one of my Monday with Mimi posts.
Monday with Mimi is a reflection on the time that my daughter gets to spend with my mother most Mondays. I am blessed enough to have an employer that let me transition to working from home the day I went on maternity leave, but I still have to attend our weekly staff meetings on Mondays. Enter my incredible mother, who watches Cricket for me on those days. Since they have had this time together since Cricket was an infant they have a very special bond AND my mom picked right up on me schooling Cricket and joined in the fun.
If you are here from the party I invite you to stay for a while, get to know me a little, and leave a comment. I would love for you to follow my blog and my twitter if you are interested.
