Throwback Thursday Blog-Style #187: January 18, 2018

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 January 18th, 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 recipe posts for the posts I wanted to share, and the year before that, I shared past review posts. It was fun remembering some of the recipes and reviews I had forgotten about. This year I will be sharing random posts.

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. 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. Sadly, I am going to have to say, I will be deleting posts that do not follow the rules. The spirit of Throwback Thursday Blog-Style is to share posts from the past. Please follow the guidelines.
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 are my Throwback Thursday posts:

Wordless Wednesday: January 17, 2018 (w/linky) : We've Had Some More Snow!

After the snow we had last week that was used to build Winter Wonder, we had some warmer weather which ended up killing our poor snow friend. However, the snow is back, with a vengeance.


Yep, that is me outside without a coat on. Hasn't been possible since that day.


I was going to eat breakfast this morning and go out to do some shoveling. Next thing I knew, Amelia was putting on her coat and boots and offering to do the shoveling.



Then Tabitha joined her.


Later that day they went out to play.





This shot is from our upstairs window.





The next two pictures were taken in the church parking lot. We loved how neat the snow/frost looked.




More snow today.

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

No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things. Feel free to still share the picture in place of the button on your Wordless Wednesday post or in a list of Wordless Wednesday linkies. Just link it to my Wordless Wednesday permalink please.



Littles Learning Link Up: Penguins Penguins All Around Round Up


Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (usually 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.

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.

It's time for this month's Round Up

As cold as it is outside, I thought it would be the perfect time to share a round up featuring one of the critters that is famous for living in the extreme cold of Antarctica: Penguins. Last week at co-op we made some cute Paper Plate Penguins, which I will be sharing next week. However, in this round up you will find over 30 other penguin crafts, along with math activities, other learning activities, free printables, sensory play ideas, snack ideas, plus some miscellaneous penguin fun. So, cuddle up under a nice warm blanket and check out these frosty ideas.
