It is Friday Fragment time again. This week's fragments all seem to be self promoting. Oh well, if I were a true narcissist wouldn't tie them all up in one post, I would write them all out separately.
If you don't follow my vlog Dave Out Loud. (and at this point no one does) you are missing gems like this . . .
I have just created a resource for quality home school blogs. It takes all 20 Homeschool Blog Awards (HSBA) categories and features the winner in each category. I also go behind the scenes and say who I voted for in each category and why as well as sharing a sample post form all 20 winners that I think gives us a good glimpse of their work.
Mine is apparently not the only resource throwing bouquets to home school bloggers. It seem that one of those bouquets was even thrown my way.
Yes Teacher Certification Degrees dot com did a fantastic job compiling 100 Homeschooling blogs and a few honorable mentions. Here is what they said about HSD:
Dave is the “Home School Dad”, White Sox fan and movie buff whose sense of humor shows in creative nicknames and occasional rants; wife Amy adds her voice as a guest contributor to this lively blog filled with ideas for budget-friendly family fun, reports on Lego robotics action and a fresh perspective from the homeschool front.
Speaking of Robotics . . .
The State Robotics Tournament is tomorrow and Saturday. Unlike last year, Spider Droid's team will not be participating. They did great at their regional. Just not great enough to be one of the 3 teams from a field nearing 20 to make it.
Here are some pics from the regional.
