Thank You for the Award

At iGameMom’s 2-month birthday, I received this Versatile Award, thank you Scout (Raising a Realist).

The rules for accepting this award are as follows:

1. Thank the award-givers and link back to them in your post: Raising a Realist

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

  • I am a wife and a mom of 9-year-old boy.
  • In the morning, I work for my day job.  In the afternoon, I am my son’s activity coordinator, driver, and cheer leader.  At night, I am the App researcher and blogger.  I feel I am having three jobs.
  • On top of all those in #2, I am also a cub scout den leader, Junior Achievement volunteer teacher, and LEGO league coach for the school’s LEGO Club. – If you have any good ideas about LEGO for elementary students, pass them on to me please.
  • Since I started the blog, I feel it is becoming my full-time job.  Thanks to all the readers’ support, and this award, I still have the drive to keep it going.
  • English is my second language, so if you find some of the sentences don’t quite go together, now you know why.  My 9-year-old has become my English teacher, particularly on pronunciations.
  • In addition to technology, I am also interested in cultural education.  I plan to take my son to different countries during summers.  We will try to visit as many countries as we can before he goes to college.
  • I prefer a balanced approach on child education.  To see what I mean, please go Here.

3. Pass this award along to 15 other bloggers.

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.   – will do.  Done.

    Congratulations on your award and on creating such a interesting, helpful blog! I just read your post on the Kahn Academy and the timing was perfect for me to help my third grade daughter with some math she’s struggling to understand. Thank you!

    Fascinating peek! I will come back again! I am just a mom of four boys, ranging in ages 11-23, and find my days revolving around family and friends. I am off to make the morning lattes.

    • iGameMom March 19, 2012, 10:17 pm

  • Tragic Sandwich March 19, 2012, 5:19 pm

    Thanks! I’ve already been nominated for this, but I have to say that I do love, love, love the way you described my blog. Can I use that?

    • iGameMom March 19, 2012, 10:19 pm

      Sure. Like your blog name and the story behind it.

  • thelastsongiheard March 19, 2012, 2:41 pm

    Wow – thanks so much for the nomination :) I’m honored! I’ll definitely go check out the other nominees too :)

    I will have to give my nominees some thought because I honestly don’t think I read 15 blogs a day LOL But I will give it my best 😀

    Thanks again!

    • iGameMom March 19, 2012, 10:19 pm

      You are welcome! Keep the good music coming…

      • thelastsongiheard March 19, 2012, 11:57 pm

        I will promise you that :) And I will respond to the award nomination, but I just don’t know when. Maybe this weekend, but hopefully sooner :)

        • iGameMom March 20, 2012, 12:15 am

          I know it takes time. It tooks hours to put everything together into one post. Not just to choose which blog to put there, also what you want to say about the blog, then set up the links for each blog, …. but all is part of the fun.

  • Betsy Andrews Etchart March 19, 2012, 11:40 am

    Wow, I’m so flattered to be included in this wonderful group of bloggers. Thank you! And what fun it will be to nominate my own list of award winners!

    • iGameMom March 19, 2012, 10:21 pm

      It is. I learned so much from reading blogs. What a online community!

  • Author MelindaTripp March 19, 2012, 9:46 am

    I Love nine year olds! I taught fourth grade for 11 years! If you are in CA you have to make a Lego Mission,
    I saw a lot of missions, but vote one from Legos! Or another panorama for class extra credit.
    I love your site, congrats again, you award winner!

    • iGameMom March 19, 2012, 10:23 pm

      Thank you! LEGO mission sounds interesting. How to get started?
