Welcome back to another fabulous week of the blog hop everyone! I can’t wait to see what everyone has been up to, creating, and sharing. The kids and I have been busy getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. We have been completing a lot of book studies, hands on projects, and fun since it is always easier to get back into a regular routine when a pinch of fun is involved. What have you all been up to lately? Let me know in the comments section.

The Thoughtful Spot is a place to gather every week to share your family friendly posts, crafts, educational ideas, recipes, and more! Inspired by the philosophy of the Winnie the Pooh character in the classic A.A. Milne storybooks for children. Brought to you each week by Enchanted Homeschooling Mom, ABC Creative Learning, Something 2 Offer, Ironic Adventures, Me and Marie Learning and Montessori Nature.
