The Homeschool Lounge is a wonderful place for Homeschooling Moms to gather together, close to 10, 000 moms right now! I am one of them, you can see my profile page here (if you are a member). I am not overly active, due to lack of time, but many moms are and when I do pop in, I always find something neat going on!

If you are new, you can read the Welcome page here, giving tons of information about this great site!

The Homeschool Lounge has graciously offered to donate an AWESOME gift to one of you, in honor of us homeschooling moms! The winner of this giveaway will have her choice of:


$25.00 Amazon Gift Certificate



~OR~

$25.00 CBD Gift Certificate



How cool is that? Who doesn't need $25 to one of those awesome sites? I use BOTH all of the time!

We've been homeschooling for 7 years (whoa, has it really been that long?). I love both of those online stores, but would probably choose the certificate from amazon. I've already got a long wish list of school supplies waiting for me on there :). Thanks for the giveaway chance!

I've been "homeschooling" since my first child was born nearly seven years ago. :)
She officially started preK four years ago.
But in some ways, I still feel like this is my first year!
I would love to win either of these gift certificates, but if I had to choose I'd go with Amazon.

Our Family Is His said...

This is our first year of HSing. It's been an experience, that's for certain. I think I am learning more than my son due to teaching him, time management, deciding on what's important and what's not, and learning to work with his special needs.

I would like to have the Amazon.com gift certificate if I won.

This is our 2nd year of homeschooling...I would like the Amazon gift cert if I won
