A Blog Award Game


Here is a blog game I am playing with some other home educators.
Thankyou Lisa for awarding my blog. Lately you have taught me that I should be more open minded to people of faith.

The Rules
Thank the person(s) who nominated you and link back up them.
Tell Readers 7 things about yourself.
Pass this award onto your favorite newly discovered bloggers and let them know.


1. I suffer from psoriasis. It's a stinger, but I can cope with it. Tinnitus as well, and I can cope with that too.

2. I didn't want children.

3. I've reshaped my life around them, and am no longer an individual, but a member of my family.

4. I'm addicted to learning in a generalist top down fashion. Suggest something to me!

5. I shave my pencils down to the wood, all the way along. They are much more pleasant that way.

6. I reject nouns/labels other than 'home educator' and 'animator' (sometimes: 'blenderhead') as any others are disadvantageous. At it's heart this is a rejection of the 'I AM' principle. However..

7. I am not Anonymous.

The blogs I'd like to award are:

Thanks--I enjoyed reading these.

One question: do you mean you shave off the painted outside of the pencil? Then do you have to sand it, as well? I'd like to see more about this. :)

Thanks for sharing.

I never wanted kids either, wouldn't change the fact that I now have 4, 2 step daughters and a son and daughter of my own, kids are great.

Suzie - Yes I shave off the paint, but no I don't sand it. I like the rough finish. I took a pic a while ago then forgot to upload it...

Logan has tried a couple of times to video Flynt getting his teeth brushed, but it keeps turning out too dark. We will try again!

techno-mole - I wouldn't change a thing now either. In fact I think I would like a daughter as well.
Not looking forward to empty nest syndrome!

You're very welcome. Loved reading the 7 reasons about you. I often wonder what the empty nest will feel like too. Then I stop and live to enjoy the moment as I am seriously running out of bed space to put children lol.

It's quite relaxing doing the actual shaving. More so than say, peeling a veg.

They look nice--and I see you sharpen your pencils with a knife, too, as did my dad.
