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...]

Kingdom Series by Chuck Black

IMG_112web.jpg

I had the pleasure of meeting an amazing author this weekend at the Rocky Mountain Super Conference! His name is Chuck Black and he has a series of books for younger readers (and honestly I loved them as well) that will blow your socks off!   The Kingdom Series: “Don your armor….Fasten your sword…Mount your Steed! And get ready to embark on an epic journey of biblical significance into a kingdom of warriors, battles, swords, villains, and knightly heroes!” The Kingdom Series books are a medieval adventure allegory of the entire bible that takes readers on an exciting journey over the course of 6 adventure packed books! Each book also includes discussion questions and answers that you can use to help your readers make the biblical connections and character traits through out the stories. After talking with Chuck for awhile and looking at his amazing books, I asked if I could do a review for his Kingdom Series, which I thought our kiddos would love! He agreed, … [Read more...]

Spelling You See Review & Giveaway

IMG_0896web.jpg

Good morning readers! We’re nearing the end of the school year and I for one can’t wait until the break is here! I’m ready for sun, swimming, and relaxing! And yes, we do take a traditional summer break just to give everyone (including me) a little rest and recuperation before kicking off the new year! But… That time isn’t quite upon us just yet. And one of the things that Turbo is needing a little more help on is his spelling.   As a result we’ve decided to continue on with spelling and possibly math over the summer. Mainly so they don’t do a brain dump of everything they’ve learned over the past year and forget it all! So when the new Spelling You See product came for review I thought it would be a perfect time to try out something new, as well as give Turbo extra practice over the summer. We’re still in the decision making process for our curriculum for next year for him, so I think this will help us decide what we’re going to do going forward. What … [Read more...]

Hi everyone! Today I have a treat for anyone looking for less stress, more sleep, and a restored passion for life. So I’ll just assume that probably includes everyone on this planet.

But technically he’s not a person…so… For the rest of you all reading this post, today I’m talking about Crystal Paine’s new book “Say Goodbye to Survival Mode”. In her new book Crystal shares some much needed practical ideas to help you get a big picture perspective to help you live your life on purpose!

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be giving away 2 Prize Packs to see the brand new Son of God movie opening THIS FRIDAY, February 28, 2014 in over 3,000 theatres nationwide.  I can’t wait to see this film! I always love to see things that bring people back to Christ on the big screen. And I’m excited to see how the filmmakers tell the story of Jesus. From the trailer it looks like an excellent depiction of the life of Christ. And with a PG-13 rating I’m hoping it will be more family friendly version as well. Interested? Keep reading to see what’s included in the Prize Packs I’m offering to you!     About the Film: “From the award-winning producers of the record-breaking miniseries The Bible, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, comes Son of God, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament, to be released by 20th Century Fox on February 28, 2014.
