Messy Beautiful Love by Darlene Schacht

messybeautifullove2.jpg

I received this precious gift from one of my favorite authors and people, Darlene Schacht. Some of you may remember her from the wonderful book that she co-authored with Candace Cameron Bure called “Reshaping It All”. Ever since then I’ve remained friends with Darlene and have continued to be inspired and encouraged by her amazing blog Time Warp Wife and all of her sweet facebook posts. I always look forward to hearing from Darlene, and when I heard she was releasing another incredible book I couldn’t wait to see it! Psst…keep reading for a chance to win a FREE copy!!   So what is her new book all about? Love gets messy.

Homeschool in the Woods Review & Giveaway

HomeschoolinWoodsCD.jpg

I’m so excited to try a new history unit this year! While we’ve used Abeka in the past, and it’s been fine, I really wanted to have a little more fun this year and do something out of the box. Sometimes you’re just ready for a change!   After careful consideration we’ve chosen to go with the Homeschool in the Woods Middle Ages unit to start with. We’ve done several years of United States History and it is time to start looking into some world history. We haven’t started yet, but after looking through it and getting everything ready I wanted to share some of my first thoughts on the curriculum as well as how we set it all up. --> And make sure to read to the end, because I have a great giveaway for you too!   First Impressions: My first impression of this curriculum is that it is going to be lots of fun! It is very hands on, and we love lapbooking and notebooking over here, so it’s a great fit for us. The activities look engaging and the text is definitely … [Read more...]
