It's time for another round of 5 After 5!  In case you missed it, last week's list was best open-ended toys and if you're new to this series, you can read more about it here - then catch up on all the old editions here.

Today I've got my list of 5 to share, as well as next week's topic for you to stew about over the upcoming days.

And this series is a link party, so be sure to scroll down and join in all the fun with us this week!

Favorite Podcasts

It's funny, because as I sat down to write this list and jotted down my favorite podcasts, I realized that this task sounded awfully familiar...

Sure enough, when I looked back through the old blog, I found this post already listing my favorites.

I then realized that I still don't really listen to podcasts, because when I want to listen to something, it's music. I'm just not much of an auditory learner, I guess, because I'd rather just read things than hear them.

I still like to listen to the shows I shared before when I'm traveling, although once our little chatterbox came along, I hardly ever have any blank space in my brain to attend to one of them on a trip.

But -- there has recently been one exception to this not-really-into-podcasts stance I have.

It all started when I meandered over to finally make sure I was subscribed to all three of Pam Barnhill's shows and heard a familiar voice other than that of my good friend...

Besides being able to catch my crazy self on episodes 57 & 65 of Pam's Homeschool Solutions Show (with more to come, as soon as I find a moment when the house is fairly quiet -- which of course guarantees that the phone will ring nonstop and every solicitor on earth will come knocking at my door), you can listen to some of the best homeschool content on the web every Friday.

Will I ever become a podcast gal? I don't know, but I'd be willing to give some others a try.

What shows would you recommend?

For next week:

Favorite movie trilogies

There are so many movie trilogies out there. Most of the time, it seems like only the first one is decent, but there are a few that I love and even some that I think got better each time.

I think I can come up with about 14 that I really like, so we'll see which 5 make my list -- and I can't wait to see what your favorites are!

That's right, every post will be read, pinned and tweeted!  

Every Saturday, just stop by one of our blogs to add your own list of five, then pop over and read as many other posts as you're able to each week - treat it like a true party and really mix it up and mingle with our fun little community!

The rules are simple:  just write your own list following the prompt each week (feel free to interpret it loosely - or in a unique way!), follow both of the hosts on the social media channel of your choice, and then get into the spirit of the party by grabbing your favorite beverage or snack and reading the lists of the other party-goers.

Your Hosts:

Lisa, at Syncopated MamaFacebook // Twitter // Pinterest // Google+ // Bloglovin'
Samantha, at Motivated DaysTwitter // Pinterest // Google+ 

What's your list?  I'd love to hear!  Either leave a comment below or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
