Your Invitation To The Ultimate Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Have you heard about the Ultimate Blog Party being hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom? Obviously it's something pretty big since there are already 971 blogs listed who have joined the party! HOW did I miss this last year?

Come on and join in the fun. Just go here to find out how ('s very simple).

So, this is my 'ticket' into the party. Let me tell you a little about myself and my blog.

First of all, as most of you know, I'm Christy and I stay home with our four wonderful, beautiful children whom you can 'meet' over <---there on my left-hand sidebar. My husband has his own Voice-over-IP phone business (which is simply using your high-speed internet line for your home or business phone service) and works from home.

We've been homeschooling for six years now and hope to continue all the way through high school. If I have my way it'll be on through college too! LOL! I love, love, LOVE being home with my babies and can't imagine life any other way.

I started this blog kind of on a whim after reading about someone else having one. I had NO idea what a blog was. Sounded kinda like a bad cold or something. But, being one that has turned into a follow-the-homeschool mommy-crowd (cause they're all just so darn smart!), my blog was born. Here I share things we do in school, reviews of curriculum we use or have used, what's going on with our family, recipes, and my thoughts on just about anything under the sun.

I love blogging and I love getting comments. I'd love to increase my traffic and readers, so I'm trying to blog a bit more than I use to, which isn't hard since so often throughout the day I think, 'Oh! That would make a great blog entry!' Now if I could just get that portable computer that can be inserted into my brain so I can just THINK up my blog entries and they automatically post instead of having to try to remember them WHEN I find the time to sit down and type them up.

I'd love to share some pictures with you, but my computer is ancient and not cooperating with me right now. So I'll leave you with this one. Looks like Reece Cup is ready to have some fun!

Happy Blog Party Hopping!

The portable computer idea cracked me up! It would indeed be a really neat invention but I don't think I'd ever want something inserted into my brains. I don't think there will be a super computer or anything that would keep up to a bloggers brain - too many blog entries!
