Coming Up! Grab your calendar!

Well I've got some fun things coming up and just wanted to let you in on it so you can spread the word if you feel so inclined.
First I've decided to run with my Show and Tell Meme idea. You all inspired me to go for it so here are the stats on that. I am going to start it next Saturday and the first "theme" is going to be antiques. Post about a special antique of yours or even someone elses that has a special story behind it. Since this is brand new I'll be giving a little reminder near the end of the week, but be thinking about what you would like to post. Then I will pick someone who joined in the meme to pick the next theme and let you know by the following Monday what that will be. Sound like fun?

The next thing is for all you homeschoolers or for those thinking about homeschooling. I am going to host a week long Charlotte Mason style homeschooling week. This is to spread the word about the Charlotte Mason style of homeschooling. Some homeschool parents have never heard about this approach to homeschooling and I thought it would be fun to share something different about this method each day. Here is a run down of what you can expect.

Day 1- We will tell about why we chose to use this method and why it works for us.
Day 2- We will give you a glimpse inside a Charlotte Mason Homeschooling day. Give an outline of a "typical" homeschool day.
Day 3 We will share all our favorite Charlotte Mason links,websites and resources.
Day 4 -Books. Charlotte Mason is all about books. We will give a list of our tried and true, real living books.
Day 5- This can be question and answer time. If during the week you post a question this will be the day to come back to get the answer. Please feel free to ask anything you like about this.

My goal is to encourage and be encouraged. Everyone has different styles and techniques. I'm sure we will all learn something new and exciting. The date for this is tentatively the week of February 2-6. So there is plenty of time to spread the word. Feel free to grab the little picture at the beginning of this post and link back to this page to put on your side bar. I will have a Mr. Linky up so you will be able to link to your posts each day.

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

The next thing is the upcoming bloggy giveaways. I am participating in that this time around and it starts a week from this coming Monday so be on the lookout for that.

Okay my friends. That's it for now. Feel free to grab these pictures and put them on your side bars and link back to this post. Minus the giveaway one( that has its own site to link too). I appreciate you helping me spread the word.

Great BIG Hugs!


  1. How fun! Great title, too. I will have to think about that one...
    I can't wait for the homeschooling stuff as well.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing all you have coming up. I'm not familiar with Charlotte Mason homeschooling, so I'm interested to see what that is all about.

    I hope to participate in your Show and Tell Saturdays. Those sound like fun!

  3. Kimmy,

    You are such a blessing! I was going to say "How do you find time in the day for this?" But I already knew your comeback...."You aren't watching TV" LOL LOL LOL

    See!!! Right? How do we crack each other up so well already? lol

    I am going to grab your buttons and post them on my sidebar sweet friend. Have a happy Saturday!! Hugs galore to you!

  4. Boy you have a lot on your plate coming up!!! Sounds good to me!

  5. Hello and God bless! I left you an award on my blog!

  6. It took me a few years of homeschooling before I discovered the Charlotte Mason way. I love it and intend to use it from day one with the child we adopt.

    Have a lovely day.


  7. Wowsers, so much to do! I'll have to remember all this...where's my planner! Wait, I need a separate bloggy planner! Ha ha! I look forward to it all! :))

  8. Excellent stuff, my friend!! I love that you picked Saturdays for the Show & Tell - that will give me something fun to look forward to and participate in! I think I already know what I will do for the first one.

    I will enjoy learning about the Charlotte Mason method as I know very little about it. Good idea!

    And of course, I love the Bloggy Giveaways.

    I look forward to all of it!!

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend! Saturday hugs to you!

  13. I would love to participate in the show and tell meme, but that will have to wait until my temporary working stint is over. Sounds like a great idea!

  14. Thanks for hosting the CM homeschool week! I can't wait. :)

  15. Can you give me more information about this? I'm new to HS-ing and the HS blogs and reading all I can about CM. Is there a link of blogs that are hosting this? Where are the others? I'm a little befuddled!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
