Welcome back to ‘Favorite Things Friday’ #10!
What a busy week! Lots of fun posts on the horizon that I’m not quite ready to share – but here is a short recap from last week:
My new Segment: Friends ask Friday! This was segment #2 featuring Grounded & Surrounded! A fun, behind the scene scoop on the bloggers behind their blog – and an intro to an exciting new summer project that you won’t want to miss!
Are YOU ready for the challenge? Get an in-depth look at a fun, exciting new summer project that you’ll definitely want to be a part of! The #ETHANproject’s main objective is to help moms (and dads!) to STOP, and Enjoy The Here And Now! This comes with a free summer guide and facebook group! It’s seriously the ‘happening thing’ right now! Make sure to check it out!
And for good measure, an added blast from the recent past that has been rocking my site lately! If you missed my nature journal post (with tutorial!), make sure to check it out!
Aaaand b/c I’m incredibly proud of my little guys – a highlight of their accomplishments this week!
My first grader has now completed Levels 1 and 2 in reading, and Levels 1 and 2 in spelling – just this year! And my little guy…. oh my little guy! We started off the year struggling. And I mean REALLY struggling. He had a hard time remembering just what the names of the letters were, nevertheless their sounds! I wanted to give up and cry, but we worked diligently through the Pre-reading level with All about Reading, and then I hesitantly moved on to Level 1. My mind has officially been BLOWN, friends! All about Reading is so incredibly thorough – he is READING, friends! Let me say that again: He.Is.READING!!! I am so proud of his hard work! If you’ve contemplated trying anything from the All About Learning Press, I highly suggest it!
Moving on to my feature pick of the week…
Remember, both myself and my co-host Rebecca will be visiting all the posts linked up and featuring one on EACH of our blogs and social media channels! We hope this link up helps each of you out and can’t wait to read your posts!
This week’s feature goes to… When we’re at home!
First let me say that I felt this post, ‘How to Homeschool and Keep Your House Clean‘, was MADE for me!! lol. I have such a hard time keeping my home clean in the midst of children in it – all.day.every.day! Though homeschoolers, I love that this post doesn’t have to be limited to homeschoolers – especially during the summer months when children are home! This post has some amazing tips on how to keep your LIVED IN home clean – and with free printables that will definitely come in handy!
Be sure to check out this post! You won’t regret it!
**Make sure to check over at Hip Homeschooling to see her featured pick!**
