Weekly Rewind: New Blogs, Down Blogs, Speaking, and Tons of Freebies!! :)

Welcome to our “Weekly Rewind” — a time to look back at some of the best freebies and deals still available.  I know many people are busy during the week, so this gives you a chance to see if there is anything of interest to you! 

If you’re on Facebook, I hope you’ll join my new Motherhood on a Dime group if you’d like to see all of the deals there each day.  I’ll be posting them there instead of on my Motherhood on a Dime page – although you are welcome to join me both places!  You can check out  this post if you wonder what in the world I’m talking about!

The girls attempted a bike *race*.  It was a little difficult–but they made it!

Life Rewind:

It seems like it’s been a while since I updated a few things happening with us!   I *officially* launched my new Homeschooling on a Dime blog last week.  It’s been fun so far, and I hope you’ll join me there if you homeschool or have an interest in educational activities and freebies!  We also had a terrible scare with the blogs going down for over a day-and-a-half on Thursday and Friday.  Thankfully, most everything was able to be restored, and I learned a great lesson about backing up my blogs every day!

I also attended the SCORRE conference at the beginning of the month (I highly, highly recommend it), and I’m looking forward to putting my new-found knowledge to work at a speaking engagement this coming weekend!  If you’re going to the Teaching Parents convention in Wichita, KS, I will be presenting a workshop entitled “Home Management…for the Rest of Us”.  I’d love to meet you if you are there!  Be sure to say hi!

Here is a look at some deals and freebies from the past few weeks!
