Homeschool Highlights Moves to a New Home

This post contains affiliate links - using affiliate links from Homeschool Coffee Break helps fuel this blog - thank you!

Welcome to Homeschool Highlights! 
This weekly link-up has been so much fun to put together and host over the past few years and I'm so thankful for the bloggers that have joined in during that time. I've been hosting this link-up for awhile, but since my youngest graduated from our homeschool, I'm now passing along the hostess baton to another homeschool blogger. It feels a little odd saying that this is my last time hosting, but I'm so glad that the link-up has a new home!

I'm so excited to be able to introduce you to the new hostess for Homeschool Highlights! Please visit Megan at My Full Heart and get to know her. This is the last week that we are co-hosting Homeschool Highlights. Beginning next Friday it's all hers! Thank you, Megan!

Grab a cup of coffee and let's get started!

This week's news  . . .  will be brief, because there's not a whole lot to tell, and I have to work today so I need to publish this and get moving!

We had a very quiet and uneventful weekend - which is good once in a while! On Sunday after church, the hubster and I stayed for the 50+ Lunch. Yeah, we're that old. We were among the youngest people there, but still, it's a milestone and it's taking some getting used to! The food was so good and we did enjoy ourselves and are looking forward to more opportunities to get together with that set of friends.

It's been a busy week of work and school and church activities. I had two sets of papers to grade for Writing class, Kennady seemed to have more homework to get through this week, and I am helping out at work by going in a couple of extra days. The house has been rather a wreck as a result, and even my being home all day on Wednesday didn't improve the appearance much! Yesterday Meaghan washed up most of the dishes and tidied things up, earning her the coveted "Favorite Daughter" status, but it never takes us long to mess things up again.

I took advantage of the opportunity to have breakfast for dinner on Tuesday, it being Shrove Tuesday. We had pancakes and bacon, and of course there were fasnachts (donuts) too. On Wednesday evening we were all at church for an Ash Wednesday service, followed by our worship team practice. 

Please stay in touch . . . I'm still going to be writing here (and on Just A Second), but the focus is shifting a little bit. And I'm still figuring that out. This year I started up a new link-up called Twenty Six Lists, so I'd love to have you visit and join us in that bi-weekly link-up.

The current list (open until Thursday) is What Are You Good At?

This coming Thursday, we'll talk about our Favorite Books, which a subject near and dear to homeschoolers' hearts, so please stop by and say hello!

On my blogs last week . . .

Here on Homeschool Coffee Break:

A parting shot . . .

Thank you so much for allowing me to take over the link-up! I hope I do it as well as you have all these years. And I do hope you'll stop by and "visit"!

Will the Homeschool Highlights button code be update so it takes us to the new homepage?

Megan - I'm hoping to stop by most weeks!

Joesette - Megan has a new button so I think she may have a grab button too.
