In the mail

My mailbox lately hasn't really been a pleasant place to visit.  Mostly just junk mail and bills.  Not fun!  Especially since in my neighborhood we don't receive our mail at our front door or even at the end of the driveway.  I have to walk about 1/2 a block down a hill to a metal box, unlock my assigned box to retrieve my mail, and then walk back up the hill.  To be honest, some days it is just to hot or to cold to make it worth it so I leave it sit.

This week though I have been watching out the window for my mailperson to arrive.  You see, I have been following Jill over at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom for a while now.  Okay, so I am not a homeschooler officially yet.  Princess A and I were playing school last year, but this fall we begin officially to homeschool preschool.  Still, Jill has lots of great crafty projects as well as free printables, DIY projects, book reviews etc that even a traditional school mom would love.  What does this have to do with my mail?

A few weeks ago she had a 7 Days of Giveaways party.  She gave away some awesome stuff and I WON!!!  I got this really awesome book:
full of some neat ideas like making a worm or ant farm, cooking only using the sun (fried eggs anyone?) sunlight photography and so much more!  And I finally got it!!! 

I would tell you more about it but the princess and I are off to explore nature.  Thanks Jill!

Until next time,

I am so glad that you like the book! I hope that you and your daughter enjoy some of the projects this summer and upcoming school year. I can relate to living so far away from your mailbox that some days it is just not worth it. We live 15 minutes away from our mailbox since we live out in the countryside with the cows and horses. Thanks for following along with my blog!

We love fun mail!! That looks like it will have a lot of fun stuff to do this summer. (I know what you mean about too hot to go outside, too..) Hopefully you can get some cooler days before the summer is over to go exploring nature. :)
