Reflections: The #AtoZChallenge

A to Z:  What a ride!

Reflections of April – The Completed Challenge

It’s over.  April was an intense month but very productive.  Did you follow along with my #AtoZChallenge?

Not only did Passing Down the Love gain 26 new posts, but I also made some new friends, found some new blogs, and learned a lot!  There is a list below of some of the new blogs I enjoyed during this challenge.  If you have a moment to show them some love by visiting their challenge posts, I know they would be appreciative.

About our Theme

The theme for Passing Down the Love was “Being a Grandma”.  If you missed some of them along the way, you can find a complete list of each day’s posts here.

Coloring Page Collection

We are always looking for ways Grandparents can connect with Grandchildren so each day during this challenge, we created a coloring page for your Grandchild.  You can now download the entire Coloring Page Collection in one PDF.  If you are already a subscriber, look for the Coloring Page Collection in the Members Only Area.

If you aren’t a subscriber but would like to receive this collection, you can request it below.

You will receive the Coloring Page Collection and be given an option to join our tribe of Grandmothers.  Members have unlimited access to our library of resources and a chance to connect with other Grandmothers across the globe.

Whatever you decide, the collection is yours to keep.

Aren't we clever to have made it all the way to the end - AND a reflection post too Kimberley? Thanks so much for mentioning Cresting the Hill in your wind up - it's been lovely getting to know you through the Challenge and I'll definitely be popping in to read your posts as the year progresses.
