Home Schoolers love to encourage one another and this is true as well when it comes to blogging homeschoolers. They give each other awards to encourage each other to keep up blogging about our adventures.

Last week Joelle from over at Homeschooling for His Glory blessed and encouraged me with this award.  Thank you Joelle for Awarding me The Homeschool Liebster Blogging Award!

Awards come with rules
  1. List 11 facts about yourself.
  2. Answer 11 questions given to you.
  3. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
