It’s funny, in our house, math is fun for one child and the devil in disguise for the other. So we have had an interesting homeschooling journey with math.

Art scares me! Ok, I said it; so, having the opportunity to bring art to our homeschool by someone who is not only NOT scared of art but is GREAT AT IT is exactly what we need. We recently had the opportunity to review the Monthly Plan to Creating a Masterpiece and it is EXACTLY […]
We recently had the opportunity to review Eclectic Foundations Language Arts Level B from Eclectic Foundations and I’m very pleased we had this opportunity.

Preschool is so fun! They learn every day. They love learning and, most of the time, if they have older siblings, they CAN’T WAIT to “do school” like their big brothers and sisters. Such is the case at our house. The little one loves school time. So, having the opportunity to give her her own […]
My daughter has been using a brand new homeschool reading curriculum from Apologia Educational Ministries called Readers in Residence Volume 1 (Sleuth). Now you know how we like Apologia curriculum and, this curriculum paired with the Writers in Residence course we recently reviewed makes a complete Language Arts Program. Voila! WHAT IS THE READERS IN RESIDENCE SERIES? […]
Ok, so I like some of the mindless games on my smartphone. Waiting for my daughter to come out of swim practice allows me a few minutes of quiet (sometimes) and I have recently found that spending some time with Planet 316 and their Daily Bible Jigsaw is a fun way to use my brain, get a little Bible, […]
