Last year Kathi at A Heart Like Water had a brilliant idea to host Homeschool Highlights in My Father’s World. But due to her busy schedule this year she has decided to step back, so myself and Monica at Discover Their Gifts will now host it together. Thank you so much Kathi for launching the MFW Highlights!
Check out the new spiffy button that Amber at Refined Metals Academy created for us!!! Thanks Amber, you rock!!!
So What is Homeschool Highlights in My Father's World??
It's a way for us to connect and share with other MFW families.
What are the guidelines??
. Only family-friendly posts, from family-friendly blogs :)
. This link-up was created for inspiration and encouragement …... so try to visit a few of the other links, and leave at least one thoughtful, encouraging comment. If you come across someone's simply amazing idea, please come back here and share it with the rest of us in the comments, so we can all be sure to be inspired!
. If, for some reason, you're not able to pull a great post together, may we suggest you at least share something...one tidbit about your week...one picture. Please don't feel like just because you had an 'off' week, you can't participate...seeing that other families actually have 'off' weeks too, may be the most inspirational post from the entire link-up!
. Sign up on the Linky. We've gotten the most emails/comments on this one. We realize a lot of homeschool moms have just started blogging, so here are our simple instructions for linking-up:
1. right click on the title of your post, copy shortcut
2. click on 'enter link' at Discover Their Gifts or 2 ladybugs and a lizard
3. paste shortcut in link, add your name, leave your email
If you don't understand, or if we run into any problems, we'll try to work them out...feel free to email one of us, and we can try to walk you through it.
. Please link back to the current Homeschool Highlights in MFW post here at 2 ladybugs and a lizard or at Discover Their Gifts, somewhere in the body of your post so that other MFW readers will know where to go to join in the fun.
We usually put this at the end of our posts like this:
" this post is linked to Homeschool Highlights in MFW at Discover Their Gifts or 2 ladybugs and a lizard "
at the top of the page and in our sidebars) to your post and in your sidebar if you'd like.
. You can also add the new graphic (
. Still, please help spread the word in case there are any other MFW families out there that would like to participate.
We are excited for the new school year and to get the weekly posts back up and running!!! We are also in the process of contacting each family that is signed up on Lainie's 2011 - 2012 My Father's World Blogroll
Where and When Does it Start??
The first link up starts August 26th here at 2 ladybugs and a lizard!
I am looking forward to seeing and being inspired by what everyone is doing in their own little homeschools. May you all have a wonderful and blessed school year!!
