I was visiting Myklin's Blog and she had this fun quiz.
Are you more Dixie or Yankee?
It was fun to see the questions, based on language usage, reveal
where you're probably from or grew up. Kind of (H)enry (H)iggins-ish
from 'My Fair Lady'. (love it!)
My results: 36% (Yankee). A definitive Yankee. The closer to 0% you
are the more Yankee you must be and the closer to 100% the more
Dixie you must be.
I figured it's because I have such a well educated and well travelled
life that I couldn't possibly be a pure-bred. (he he he 😉
This is from Sandie's Blog:
What type of homeschooler are you? Take the Quiz!
Mr. Potato Head.
You have your ideal of how things should look, but you're flexible
enough to allow for change. You are not bothered by changing
methods, mid-course if necessary. You use an eclectic combination
of curriculum sources.
I REALLY wanted to be a Galileo or Abraham Lincoln homeschooler,
so I went back and tried to honestly change my answers. I STILL was a
potato head! Oh well. Someone needs to have fun!
This was on Linda's Blog: Which Jane Austen heroine are you most like?
Click here to find out!
I am most like Marianne Dashwood.
You're Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! More dramatic and emotional than your sister Elinor, you have no trouble saying what you think
and showing people how you feel about them. However, you usually know
when to keep your mouth shut.
I asked Asa who he thought I would most be like and he said jokingly, “Uh, gee, I don't know Mairanne Dashwood?” We laughed. If you've seen the movie, you pretty much have met me. I do try to be a little more grounded and sensible than Marianne. I try. It's just so hard to bridle pure passion! (he he)
Hope you have fun with this. I think I now have a new little fun thing to do every now and then!

During this time of celebrating the Independence Day of our country, don't forget there are thousands of men and women in our Armed Forces that are continuing to fight overseas for the freedoms we are enjoying right now. Please take a moment or two to pray for them and their safe return to their families and to visit some blogs of friends who are either serving or are realted to or have friends who are serving. Offer your prayers, love and encouragement during this hard time in our world's history. Remember a lot of our servicemen and women are brothers and sisters in Christ and it is our Christian obligation to lift them up to the Lord for His protection of them and their families.
I don't know of a whole lot of blogs but you can start at these ones: cre8ivemom and hskubes. They have links to her friends and fellow bloggers who are military families/friends. These are great people who give their lives for freedoms sake and they need to be remembered for the awesome job they are doing!
Let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers and have our support. Also tell them how much we appreciate their sacrifices so we can live free and not have to fight on our own soil. I know that I am truly grateful for ALL of these brave men and women and their calling to protect and to serve. May God bless them and keep them safe in the palm of His hand! Don't forget these precious people and their families! A house divided cannot stand against the enemy!

Of the privilege of citizenship you have to this great country of ours?
Take the Citizenship Test and find out!
Don't worry, a low score isn't going to get you kicked out of the country! But this was a fun idea posted by cre8ivemom in honor of our upcoming Independence Day. It's from the actual pool of questions asked by the INS to prospective initiates for citizenship to the USA. I did pretty good actually. I passed! (whew!) It would appear this whole homeschooling thing IS working!
P.S.A great big THANK YOU to everyone for such sweet birthday wishes! HSBlogger friends are the best!
