Throwback Thursday Blog-Style #153: May 25, 2017

Welcome back to... 


I know, I know, Throwback Thursday seems to be all about sharing pictures from the past, great memories that mean something to you, that you would like to share with others. At least that is how it appears to me. Throwback Thursday wasn't something I was participating in, and then I came up with an idea.

I thought it would be great fun and a help to my blog to share old content, but not just any old content. Each week I will share an old blog post from a previous year, any year, BUT it has to be from the current week (for example, something I've posted around May 25th, from any previous year)  I will go in, edit the post if needed, add a pinnable image if I don't already have one, and share it on Facebook.

Last year I focused solely on review posts for the posts I wanted to share. It was fun remembering some of the review products I had forgotten about. This year I will be focusing on recipes I have shared in the past.

Would you like to join in? You do not need to edit your past post in any way, you don't need to create a pinnable image, though it couldn't hurt, in fact it will help your blog traffic to add quality pinnable images to your posts.

Just go into your archives, choose a favorite post from this current week from any previous year, and link it up below. (If you don't have anything from this current week, it is still okay to link up with a post from a previous year around this time. And if you haven't been blogging for a full year, feel free to share any earlier post.)


Please make sure to share from the past as instructed above if you would like your post to qualify for the Featured Post. Most weeks I find that there is a wonderful post, but I can't feature it because it is a current post, not from the past. I love reading the current posts, if you want to share them. However, I am not able to feature them, because the spirit of Throwback Thursday Blog-Style is to share posts from the past.
Thank you

I will be pinning posts to my appropriate Pinterest boards and will be randomly selecting a Featured Throwback Thursday post to share next week. Just a note, I will be sharing a picture from your post if you are selected as the featured post, but I will link back to your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. By linking up you are giving me permission to use your picture in the post. 

Here is my Throwback Thursday post:

Wordless Wednesday: May 24, 2017 (w/linky) : Enjoying God's Creation

Saw this in the river by the Y. Not sure, but I've checked and sort of think it is a heron, or a crane. I can't really tell.





And then Tabitha found a wooly bear caterpillar.







And next there was a toad. They each got a chance to hold it.










Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.

Littles Learning Link Up: May 23, 2017


 Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child(ren).

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

What have we been up to?

We have been learning about China for the past week, though we are taking a week off so I have some time to recuperate from my surgery. So, we will continue China next week. We have watched both Mulan movies and Kung Fu Panda. The children had fun using their Chinese yuan to purchase their movie tickets and some snacks for the movie. We learned that sunflower seeds are a popular snack in China, so the children have been enjoying eating them for snacks and with lunch.

I wanted to share the fun we had the other day when Tabitha planned a fun treasure hunt for her siblings. She made up rhyming clues (with a little help from me) and set them around the yard. She buried a bowl that she had placed some packs of gummies and a box of pudding for them to make together, as the treasure.














Let's take a look at that review schedule:

Last week I posted my review of Only Passionate Curiosity's online course called Homeschool Rescue. And yesterday, my review for Thin Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc. went live. I have been reading the Christian Heroes book about David Livingstone from YWAM Publishing.  That review will be posting at the very beginning of June. Also in June I will be posting the reviews for: Memoria Press Latina Christiana, which I am using with Tabitha, K5 Learning, WhistleFritz, Marsh Media, Hewitt Homeschooling, and the Adventures of Rush Revere Book Series.

Some thing I would like to share with you:

Father's Day is next month. If you are looking for ideas for gifts or cards, I would love for you to check out my Father's Day Gift and Card Round Up.


Two weeks ago I shared the Colors and Color Mixing Fun Literature and Craft Round Up which featured some of my favorite books about colors and color mixing, along with our Camouflaged Chameleons. You will also find a collection of great links to other blogs with fun color/color mixing ideas that go with different books.



And here are some of my past Round Ups with lots of fun crafts and activities that are appropriate for springtime.

Now onto:
Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there were 13 wonderful posts linked up. I will be picking one randomly selected post to share, plus the top clicked-on post.  

Don't forget to stop by other posts that are linked up. See what catches your eye, stop by, pin the post to a relevant board, and perhaps leave a comment to let the author of the blog know you have been by for a visit. I know I appreciate others commenting and letting me know they have read my posts, so I am sure others do too.

This week's randomly selected post is:


Jennifer from The Jenny Evolution shared Modeling Clay Color Mixing For Kids.

And here is this week's top clicked on post.


Amanda from Sicily's Heart & Home shared The Tiny Seed Activities for Toddlers.


Join the Party!

I would love to have you join in this week! What sort of activities do you do with your young children? Do you have some favorite activities you would like to share? I invite you to link up below. I will be pinning posts on one of my relevant boards, and I would love to feature some of the activities each week from what is linked up.

Please know I may share a picture from your post and link back to it, along with sharing how we used your idea in our school time. By linking up you are giving me permission to use a picture from your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. Additionally, if you choose to try out any of the ideas with your child, please make sure you give credit where credit is due.

Linky will be open through Monday night, to give me time to check out all the posts and get the Features organized. Please take the time to visit some of the other wonderful posts linked up.
