Launch Day and a Livestock Show!


This is an exciting and busy week in our house.  The children have their livestock show this week and today is the official launch day for Heroes Next Door! I can not thank you enough for your support as we launch this book. It has been a dream of my husband’s to be able to provide a book that engages middle grades students while teaching them about history through story. This book shares the Vietnam War in a way that is real, relate-able, and age appropriate.  In honor of launch day we are hosting a giveaway for a free copy of Heroes Next Door: Hornet 24. Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win. (Hint, there is also a bonus giveaway on our Facebook page)

If you are curious about the livestock show, I interviewed my son in Homesteading Homeschool: Our 4H Pig and my daughter in Homestead Homeschool: Our 4-H Goat. You can follow us on Instagram @dawnpelusoschoolinswag to get see some pictures from the show this week and I’ll share a blog post about their experiences Friday or Saturday.

Finally, if you are like me and struggling with being consistent with your time with God amidst a busy schedule then I highly suggest you check out this free webinar by Jami Balmet and the folks at Ultimate Bundles titled, “Finding God in Your Busy Day”. I have heard several presentations by Jami and they all have been excellent. I am looking forward to the opportunity to hear her again as I struggle to get back to consistency since the baby was born. Jami will teach you where to find unexpected pockets of time for God and devotions, where to find Bible Study resources, and what your Bible study time should consist of.
