LLM Linkup and the Great American Eclipse 2017

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today at 11:41 a.m. my skies will darken as the Great American Eclipse reaches totality in my area. This is a once in a lifetime event! We will not get the whole eclipse only 77.2% but I am thinking that will still be pretty amazing.


I will be outside watching with a wielding helmet, as usual I waited to long to get glasses. But I read where a 14 and up wielding helmet will work. So that is what I will be using. In my area we have a lot of Native Indians and they are not allowed to look at the eclipse, so our town and schools are not really doing much for the eclipse. In fact several schools and business will be closed today. It is very interesting how different cultures react to different things.  I am going to try and get a hold of my sister and ask her about the tradition and why they can’t look at the eclipse, If I do I will share with you as to why.

Is your town experiencing the eclipse? Are you including this great event in your homeschool lesson plan or do you want to talk about the eclipse with your child?

Linkup Rules:

  1. Include a link back or the blog hop button linked to this hop on your posts.
  2. Link up the urls to your posts not to your blog.
  3. Please remember this is a family-friendly linkup. Although we believe in the right for adults to read whatever they want to read, we prefer to read wholesome posts that feature literature that edify and uplift families. We reserve the right to delete any posts that are not family friendly. We love all kinds of literature and genres including family-friendly inspirational romances, fantasy, or science fiction. We do not welcome any posts that feature excessive violence, sexual content, or any cursing. This rule also applies to book review posts that feature books that are not family-friendly. These posts will be deleted without notice to the blogger or explanation. While we believe in the right for all adults to read whatever they want, we feel our linkup is for family-friendly posts only. Thank you for understanding.
  4. We also want to be loving community by supporting one another. Please make a point to do this this week! Visit the two posts before yours and at least one other blogger’s post of your choice! I want to see lots of clicks on everyone’s posts. Remember it is also nice to follow them on their social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  5. Follow your hosts and co-hosts on their social media.
  6. Tweet about the link up too.
