My First Ultimate Blog Party!!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I just recently found out about this awesome Blog Party over at 5 Minutes For Mom called Ultimate Blog Party. If you like to party and make new friends you have got to head on over there.  There are different categories to link up with.  There are lots of giveaways.  Sorry to say I don't have any current giveaways, though I am working on two for the very near future.  This blog is primarily about my girls and I.  We are home preschooling at the moment.  I love to post about what we are doing, sharing our crafts, recipes, activities and books we are reading.  Every week I post a school time week in review and link up to multiple school type carnivals/linkys. I love to take pictures and the girls are more than likely going to be the stars.  I love linking up to various linkys through the week.  You can see my posts on Muffin Tin Monday, Tiny Talk Tuesday, and Wordless Wednesday each week.  I also host a few linkys myself.  Words of Wisdom Wednesday and  Breakfast for Dinner Thursday.  And right now, through Easter Sunday, you can link up to the Hopping Along to Easter Blog Hop, there is a new topic each week to respond to.  Occasionally I will have a review or giveaway and I love sharing giveaways that I find, so don't forget to check out my Giveaway Opportunities Link on my sidebar (you can find it under all the little widgety ways you can follow me, like GFC, Facebook, Twitter and Subscribing to my blog).
We are very very relaxed homeschoolers at the moment.  I do believe that children learn through play.  But the girls do love having their "lesson time" and have loved the art lessons we have been doing lately.  Though I have to admit it has been a little tricky with the baby at times.

If you are here from the party I invite you to stay for a while, get to know me a little, leave a comment, and if you would like to follow my blog, Facebook page, Twitter, whatever.  I will make sure to hop on over for a visit, though it could take several days.



  1. Hello. I'm stopping in from UBP! It's nice to meet you!

  2. I was already following, but thanks for letting me know about UBP!

  3. Glad to discover your blog via UBP. I have two kids and we spend a lot of time reading and crafting. Happy partying!

  4. Came by from the UBP11! I too love Muffin Tin Monday... however most of the time I resort to muffin tin meals it's cause I'm being lazy and not creative :/ I love everyone's ideas though! I'm also a homeschool mom of two young girls :)
    Come by when you have time!

  8. Stopping by for the UBP. I've thought about doing Muffin Tin Monday but haven't put anything together so far. Maybe some day.

    I've got a 2.5 year old and another baby due this summer, and I wonder how our craft time (and everything else, actually) will work once #2 comes along. I like your description of being "relaxed" about homeschooling because of a baby.

    I hope you'll come visit over at Science Fiction Mommy

    Enjoy the party!
