Has it been that long since I shared the freebies I got? Here is the verdict of what I got so far. I got the Outback Steakouse free steak card. I ended up getting two history posters and two Scholastic  wiggle works CD, and the Lamb recipe book but I especially love the Subway fitness deal. WOW, the planner is really nice and they sent two pedometers..Can you see them beside the Subway's Every day fit book?  I know some of ya'll do free food,house products...I can't even imagine if I took more time what I would get then too...but I love magazines...and the CD about elephants is great too...I am disappointed in the sample size of Suave Scent Spray...but hey I guess the full size is small too..

Ok..ever onward for more freebies today....

ALL kinds of FREEBIES today! Where do I begin? weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

TiME SENSITIVE FREEBIES - hurry hurry freebies

I love getting this magazine, Home School Enrichment and they have a freebie right now, Family Reading Bundle. Here is what it is:

"This free downloadable resource features four full-length books and thirty-eight short stories, all reprinted from some of the best family-friendly, character-building literature from the mid to late 1800's. Perfect for family read-aloud or just for your kids to read on their own, this bundle is sure to be a favorite for the whole family! "

And here is some of what you get :

Books:

The Sudberry's on the Scottish Highlands

By R.M. Ballantyine

Accident-prone Mr. Sudberry and family, from London, vacation in Scotland for a summer. Hilarity ensues. This book is a HUGE favorite for many families!

In School and Out

By Oliver Optic

Can Richard Grant, spoiled by his father's wealth, overcome those who stand in his way of becoming a young man of honor and integrity?

The Doctor's Daughter

By Sophie May

One of our personal family favorites and also widely popular, The Doctor's Daughter follows Marian Prescott from the age of twelve to twenty. Similar to Anne of Green Gables, but we found it both funnier and more absorbing!

Rich and Humble

By Oliver Optic

The prequel to In School and Out (above). Richard's father is arrested for a fraud he did not commit. How are his children to clear his name and restore the family honor?

 Is anybody else not getting my pictures on my blog? I had one reader that so kindly let me know. She said she used Google Chrome and even though I swing back and forth between Chrome, IE, Mozilla and Safari (yes I love my browsers..lol)...I am not sure if it's a browser problem or what...but just need to know if it is a widespread problem or isolated.

Too, let me apologize for feed burner yesterday. .I didn't tell it to send out a digest .but sometimes feedburner does not play nice with my blog server and decides to get excited and send out past posts. .I am looking into it..

Hugs for today, enjoy your freebies.. .I think we will take off school today to catch up on some things..but first I think we'll swim this morning in the pool...yes it's HOT enough here to still swim...and I think we'll just play games and read..(that's school isn't it?)

Hugs again and remember......
