Lego Quest II Play Challenge and a Todd Wilson Giveaway!

I found this great idea over on The Canadian Homeschooler Blog for a Lego Challenge each month! This month's challenge was "Play". Only my oldest wanted to participate and I showed him the challenge, and what a few other children had made and here's what he came up with!

He said they were playing "fight" and wanted to be sure I mentioned on the blog that these, "were like Nerf guns, not REAL guns!"

An incredible extendable arm with a "bullet" at the end 
Ramp for the bike to ride and jump off of

Ship with cannon on the front (and a barrel and dog to join in the fun!)

This Mini-fig. looks like he's enjoying himself!

As a homeschooling mom, it's very easy to become consumed with your children's education. Certainly we should be diligent in attending to their studies, but where is the line? And are we allowing our marriages to suffer? There is a great little book by Todd Wilson, "How to be a Great Wife...even though you homeschool" 
This book is a great little reminder at setting right priorities and then also maintaining them! It's written by a homeschooling husband and father of 8 and I will be giving one copy away! Just enter through the rafflecopter widget below!
(please note the copy I am giving away is an actual book- not the ebook version, and it is "gently used") Open to all U.S. residents 18+
