Finding Friendships

As homeschoolers, we take on all of the responsibilities of our children’s education, including the social aspects. I am talking about the “S” word, yes, but there is a different view of it when we’re discussing children with special needs.

My post today for Wednesday Special Needs at The Homeschool Village is all about where to find friends and how to create opportunities for your special needs child to connect.  Do you make an effort to help your kids develop friendships?  Read Finding Friendships here.     


And for today’s giveaway….  

See that picture at the top of the page?  It is one of thousands available for bloggers to use from the Pix-O-Sphere website.  I use Pix-O-Sphere for post images when ever I don’t happen to have one of my own.  I can go there and search for just about any topic, and come up with GREAT images!  

Photo-dependent. That’s what you can probably call a good percentage of bloggers these days. We LOVE to take peekshurs (as Jenn would say!) Love them. It doesn’t matter whether you use a little point and shoot 5MP camera, a $2000 Canon, or your iPad with the Instagram app. Pictures are king. Pictures make people stop and read.  Pictures make every story more interesting, right?

You’ve probably also done your share of searching for “the right picture” through Creative Commons and other places.  Sometimes this can yield good results, but you have to wade through a lot of inappropriate ones to find the good stuff.  My friend SisterLisa and her husband own Pix-O-sphere and view it as a ministry to families, and their heart is to offer a stress-free service to bloggers. There are no adult images to sort through. Just a growing group of bloggers who are sharing their photos with one another.  A basic membership is free, but with a PREMIUM membership you can even SELL your photos there.

    I just like to find photos that tell the story I'm trying to convey, so I like family, fun and landscapes all. I just love photos!

    My favorite photos to include are family/local sights. But I struggle with finding generic photos that capture an emotion… searching for those is a HUGE time waster for me!

    I personally love to take and use landscape/nature pictures. I have not been able to take as many pictures this summer as I normally do, but I hope to get back in the groove this weekend…
