the weekly pin-it party featuring homeschooling and monster-talk!

welcome back to our weekly pin-it party!  we’re happy that you’ve stopped in.  i love our link-up!  every week, you link some pretty fantastic ideas, projects, testimonies, advice, and pieces of your own journeys.  i know we all look forward to checking out these pins and appreciate your participation!

if you missed last week’s link-up and want to peruse those pins as well, you can by clicking {here}.

here are a few from last week that hit home for me especially:

‘how to tell others you’re homeschooling’ by joy in the journey 
friends and i have spoken often about our desires to homeschool our children.  i feel like if my husband and i did decide to take the plunge and homeschool, we’d probably hear some negative feedback.  reading the advice offered here definitely puts my mind at ease regarding that aspect.

our 2014-2015 preschool goals by creative home keeper
i honestly feel like i could have written this post myself.  thank you, victoria, for sharing, b/c it puts my similar situation/stage into words that actually make sense! πŸ™‚  i want to homeschool; hubby doesn’t.  my daughter will start a half-day program this year, and i am hoping to still ‘homeschool’ her on the other days we have together.  sometimes i think she’s over prepared, and sometimes i fear she’s under prepared, so i love this simple, concise list of objectives to kind of compare our own goals to.  

’40+ ways to stop kids from being afraid of bedtime monsters’ by happy hooligans
a lot of good ideas here, and personal testimonies from parents.  we definitely stand behind the movie advice.  my kids are monsters inc. fans, and those movies have definitely allowed the children to see monsters in a different light.  and veggie tales…just love ’em too.  i think we own nearly every one, and they support important lessons and values that we try to encourage here.

we, at klover house, also pray over our children each night out loud and bless them and declare restful sleep and peaceful dreams.  i personally believe that there is power in our prayers, and the children hearing our prayers for them is empowering – even if they are too young to realize it.  bad dreams are few and far between in our house.  i can recall a night about two years ago.  ava (our oldest) came into my room around 10 or so (they go to bed between 7 and 8, so she had been asleep for some time), and said that ‘mr. joe’s car’ had woken her up and scared her.  we took that opportunity to turn the focus onto a positive and prayed and thanked God for her amazing hearing.  we also asked God to give her that restful sleep that she needed.  

ok, now it’s your turn to pin!

participating in the party is so easy!
here’s what to do:

1. follow the co-hosts on pinterest (links below)

paula from beauty through imperfection

becky from your modern family

gabrielle from MamaGab

me! kristi from klover house

2. pin our “pin-it party” picture. (one of these)

3. add as many of your great pins as you want!  remember to get your pins from pinterest & not from your blog page. it will make it easier to re-pin a pin instead of a post.

4. hop around and re-pin other pins from this page- lets share the love!

5. adding your link gives us permission to use an image from the pin (or post connected to the pin) to feature on next week’s pin-it party. because of this we ask that you only link up images from your own site, and images that you have taken, created or have legal rights to.

thanks!!!! REMEMBER: when it asks for your NAME, you can put your PIN NAME or your BLOG NAME. essentially, it’s your pin’s title.

***PLEASE NOTE*** if the post that your pin leads to contains any offensive or derogatory wording (e.g. profanity), i will not be able to feature your pin, no matter how great the article or how terrific the idea. the use of those terms simply doesn’t align with my personal convictions, and what we, at klover house, aim to promote. thank you in advance for understanding!

join the klover house family on facebook, pinterest, and twitter!
