A Giveaway: In Honor of 10,000 Page Views!

Hi there, friends, and welcome!

I hope this weekend finds you well and enjoying a 
peaceful and/or productive weekend....
whichever you need most right now!

So...we are having a super busy day filled with 
household projects, spring-ish cleaning inside and out,
baseball, baseball and more baseball....!
But I wanted to drop in, say hello,
and mention a little giveaway I'm having
that I'm excited about......

I found that nifty little page view counter
( over on the left)
 kind of intriguing 
on a fellow blogger's page
and so I installed it on my sidebar, as well.
I noticed that the visitors were tallying up! 
Faster than I'd have expected!

When I installed it, I believe the views were in the 6000s.
Before I knew it,
 it was rapidly approaching the 10,000 mark.
Thank you for visiting.
Thank you so much, friends, for making my blogging experience so worthwhile,
so meaningful,
so full of friendship and fun
over the past
since I've been blogging!

I began my blog in hopes of keeping myself "focused" as a writer and 
as a homeschooling mom maintaining some order and purpose on our journey.
I love writing,
and note taking.
 I thought a blog would be a lot of fun to start.
I truly did not think that it would become 
such a rewarding experience and that I'd be graced with  such dear friends.
Friends from across the country and around the globe!

How I wish we could gather in my kitchen,
right now even,
over a cup of tea!

Soooooo, in  honor of all those who've stopped in whether fleetingly or regularly,
 and brought the counter to what it is
(and believe me, no one is more surprised that I am
that you actually and purposely click over to my spot!)....
I'm giving away a couple of curriculum-related
homeschool-ish books.

I'm thinking that since many of us are now
in the mindset of planning for the 2013-2014 school year,
these resources that my kiddos have "outgrown,"
might really be appreciated by some readers.
