2016 Disney Contest and Sweepstakes Roundup

2016 Win A Trip To Disneyland Or DisneyworldAs my children are starting to grow up (I now have a 9 year old, a 7 year old, a 5 year old, and a 7 month old), I have a little longing to take them to Disneyland and Walt Disney World. I was able to visit both as a child and Disneyland a couple of times as an adult before I had my children.

Since taking 6 people to either park is not a cheap endeavor, nor is any travel with a large family, I am looking for different options to help me get there. One option is to enter the plethora of Disneyland contests and sweepstakes that are available each there. Who would not want to win a trip to Walt Disney World or win a trip to Disneyland?

Homeschool Giveaway! It’s NOT Greek To Me DVD

ItsGreekToMe Give Away

Even if you are not into Classical Conversations (I know a lot of moms who are), there are a lot of great reasons to learn Greek, including understanding the New Testament better.

From the NLPG site:

This video-based learning program is meant to be a basic introduction to Greek that will not overwhelm or frustrate you. Learn enough of the grammar to understand every Greek reference your pastor makes. Discover:

  • The Greek alphabet
  • Punctuation (and how it’s used!)
  • Nouns, verbs, voice & moods
  • Nominative, genitives, vocatives, accusatives, & datives (the – tives of when to use what word and how)
  • How to apply your new skills!

Onto the giveaway:

NLPG has blessed me with a copy of It’s Not Greek To Me DVD series to give away on my blog. See below for how to enter. If you want the DVD for sure, order it on New Leaf Publishing’s web site.

Giveaway Entry Instructions:

1) You must leave a comment here to enter.

2) The comment must include why you would like the book.

3) The comment must include at least one (you may do more) way you shared this raffle (and therefore a link to my blog link) with others. You can say you shared it on Facebook, Pinned it, emailed it to friends, etc…

4) You may also, but you dont have to, include info about your homeschool this year (style, curriculum, goals, etc…) or just say hello!

At the end of the contest, the first comment will be #1, the second #2, etc… We will draw the number out of a bucket and then find the comment that matches. Yes, there is software like Rafflecopter that does this, but it doesn’t work on sites hosted on wordpress, so we are doing things the old fashioned way!
