What Homeschooling Looks Like - Week 8

Welcome to Week 8 of the What Homeschooling Looks Like photo hop! 

This will be my last official photo hop intro post for awhile. I am not particularly good at the social media aspect of blogging and have put almost zero effort into spreading the word about this photo hop, so unsurprisingly, the reach has been small. (You know the relationship between effort and results!)

That said, I have loved seeing the photos everyone has linked, and I've enjoyed having a deliberate purpose to go along with my photography practice. 

Starting next week, there will be no intro post. I will post my own photo by Wednesday afternoon and include the linky and theme for anyone else who would like to join in. Hope to see you there! 

This week, our theme is movement. Whether you're homeschooling toddlers, teenagers, anyone in between (or all of the above!), I'm inviting you to share a photo you captured in the past week. 

You don't need to be a professional or hobbyist - the point of this hop is to encourage each of us to keep a visual record of our homeschooling experience and share photos of what homeschooling really looks like. Use your smart phone, your DSLR, or any camera you can get your hands on. If you find yourself getting more interested in photography at the same time, great!

The rules are:

1. Choose one homeschooling photo. Our theme this week is movement. However this theme inspires you works for me! 

2. Post your photo on your blog, on Flickr, or another photo hosting site. You're welcome to caption your photo, give a little backstory, or just share the image - I will leave that up to you! Please include a link to this post so that others can join in the fun!

3. Link up with your actual photo or your blog post, not the url of your blog. (Otherwise, no one will be able to find your photo.)

That's all there is to it!

The linky closes Saturday at midnight, EST. 

Next week's theme will be mess. The linky goes live Tuesday morning!

Helpful hints: 

  • Link up early and comment on a few of the other entries. It's a party - you want to chat with the guests!  Plus, nice people are awesome.
  • All photos must be clean and family friendly. Any inappropriate photos will be removed immediately. If your photo offends any of the participants, I will make the final call.
  • Make sure you hold the copyrights for the photos you post. If you didn't take the photo, don't post it.


  1. I don't know how I managed to put my photo sideways, but there you go, lol! Thank you for the blog spot. I look forward to seeing everyones photos :-)

  2. Movement?! I can do that :) That's all they do over here. It might be blurry! :)

    1. Yeah, I thought this might be an easy one! :-)
