CONTEST – Book Give Away!

 Congratulations to Connie Perry, the latest winner …

Collection One of Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley’s  “Wright On Time” books 1-4  will be the prize for one of you lucky readers.     When we recieved our copy of the book the girls were excited to be reading about a homeschooling family that traveled in an RV just like us!  Wow, as a reader, you don’t come across story lines that include a homeschooling, RV traveling family everyday. The 4 books in this collection are set in Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, and South Dakota.  These are all states that we have not traveled to yet and in each scenario we learned some new information about  adventures we may want to check out when traveling in these areas. While reading the stories to the girls, I often had to stop and answer questions about the information I was reading.  This book was really great at exposing them to new topics and vocabulary words.  I really appreciated the books all being in one collection so when we finished one title but still wanted to know what was going to happen next in the Wright family adventures, I could simply turn the page and start the next book to continue to feed our curiosity.

We enthusiastically  recommend this collection, and can’t wait for future collections to be released.

We Have A Winner ! ! !

Our “How Many Bees in the Box” contest has come to an end.  We had a total of 16 guesses, with a low guess of 526 and a high guess of 8361.

The actual number of bees in the box….   2183

That is a lot of bees, it is hard to believe there were more than that in one ground nest.

The winning guess was 2100, submitted by Christine Morrison

Congrats Christine 🙂 Your Sport Berkey is on it’s way…

We would like to thank everyone for participating, our next contest will be announced soon.

CONTEST ! — How Many Bees in the Box?

THE CONTEST IS OVER… The winner will be announced soon.  

This is the first official contest offered by The Scholl Bus.  We thought this would be a fun little twist to the old “How many beans are in this jar” contest.


Here are some details:

We collected these as part of our Insect Collection hobby, they are being sent to Texas as we speak…

This box lid is a pack of 8 1/2″ x 11″ heavy card stock paper, it is roughly 1/2″ deep.

The yellow jackets were individually counted and piled in the box, they are piled up and not just one layer thick.

One picture is taken directly overhead with a Quarter in there for a size comparison.


Contest Rules:

(we reserve the right to alter the rules prior to contest end if needed)

The winner is the closest to the actual number counted (going over is okay).

Contest runs from posting time on 9-11-12 thru  HIGH NOON (Scholl Bus Time)  9-18-12.

If multiple guesses for the same number are entered, the first one posted wins (please look through the comments and avoid duplication).

All guesses must be posted under THIS POST in the comments section.

Note:  To combat SPAM we will be moderating all comments, so it may take a few minutes for your comment to appear on the site.

One guess per person please, guesses can not be changed after they are made.
