 One of my friends from bloggy land is going to be a rep for Rosetta Stone. She and her daughter will represent them at homeschool conventions. How fun is that.  And good news for us, in that she is able to give a brand new language program away.  Follow the instructions below to enter in this contest.


Rosetta Stone has been the #1 foreign language curriculum among homeschoolers for a while — next week they are unleashing a brand new curriculum, and you can WIN the *all new* Rosetta Stone Homeschool Version 3… FOR FREE! 

This is a $219 program (and believe me it’s worth every penny!) and the winner gets to pick from any of these 14 languages: Spanish (Spain or Latin America), English (American or British), Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Irish, Hebrew, or Russian.

This will also include a headset with microphone, and students will participate in lifelike conversations and actually produce language to advance through the program.  Rosetta Stone still incorporates listening, reading and writing as well, in addition to speaking.  Many homeschoolers requested grammar and vocabulary exercises, and with Rosetta Stone Homeschool Version 3, they’re included!  For parents, the new Parent Administrative Tools are integrated into the program and allow parents to easily enroll students in any of 12 predetermined lesson plans, monitor student progress, and view and print reports. 


To win this most excellent program — in the language of your choice — copy these (blue) paragraphs and post it in (or as) your next blog post — then to enter the contest, go to the original contest page HERE: http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/JenIG/501132/  and leave a comment with the link showing where you blogged about it.  And please make sure the link works to get back to the original contest page when you post it.  And good luck!  The winner will be picked randomly on March 26, and will be notified thru the link they left to their blog pg.   And if you have more than one blog, you can post them and enter those separately for more chances to win.   Yay for free stuff!

Baby Photo Contest

Emily is having a baby photo contest.  I think the criteria for winning has to do with the most dated, goofy picture you can find.  I found a lot but the following are those that I think may be in the running.

Will you look at that belly!

My mom was always a fan of sailor dresses. I think I had one clear until I was 15 or so.

Get a load of the hair dryer!

Love the baby stroller!

I actually remember this. I was hiding from someone who was looking at me.  Like the chair. We had a three piece set.

And this is just classic. My mom is in the middle.  The other two ladies are her sisters. We were at Disney Land.  I remember this outfit, the pink bell bottoms. This was the time that I wore this outfit when I was 7 and my mom put me on an airplane to go see my aunts in LA.  My mom later met us there in the car and we went to Disney Land. This was my first trip.

How’s that?!  Is there a winner?
