We’re dealing with a family crisis at the moment (the kind that involves surgeons and emergency travel arrangements), so this will have to be brief. It’s too bad, because I’d love to go on and on and ON about how much I loved your comments about math! You made me feel so much less alone. But I’ve got to run, so I’ll just say that the winner of last week’s ancient history homeschool book giveaway is Laura. Congratulations, Laura! Send me an email with your address and I’ll get those books out to you just as soon as I can.
And now for this week’s Help-I’m-Moving-To-Hawaii-And-The-Government-Won’t-Ship-All-These-Books giveaway:
- Altered Art; Terry Taylor
- Urgent 2nd Class; Nick Bantock
- Journal Revolution; Linda Woods and Karen Dinino
I bought these when the Goobs and I were all frustrated with our serious lack of drawing skills. I thought it might be nice to try something else for a change, and so I brought these books home, hoping they’d be inspired to do something besides sit around and complain that their horses look like dogs and their dogs look like snails, but they weren’t interested. I was okay with that, and put the books on the art shelf “just in case.” That was several years ago. We’re never going to use these books. If you’d like to try them, just leave a comment telling me how you handle art at your house, would you? My JellyMan is heading into high school, and he’d like to draw a decent looking horse by the time he graduates! I’ll announce the winner next Saturday, February 6th, 2010.
By the way, if you were the winner of a previous giveaway and you have not received your books yet, don’t despair. It isn’t because I don’t like you. It’s because The Man is pathetic and can’t function properly without me. I’ll take care of it as soon as I get back home, which should be Monday - assuming we can avoid any additional catastrophes.
