Review: ArtAchieve Entire Level I

One of the glorious things about homeschooling is that we have more time for things like art and music.  My experience as a public school teacher showed me that most children only get about 40-50 minutes PERHAPS once a week dedicated to subjects like these.  That wouldn’t be enough for my drawing/art loving children.  However, […]


Do You ALWAYS Give Your Best?

This thought has been bouncing around in my brain a lot lately.  I’m not really sure where the general idea came from at first.  The idea that God is calling on all of us to always give our best at everything we do no matter what. I remember once listening to a podcast by Andy […]

LAZY! Yes! It seems hard to believe but I am LAZY!

I guess we all struggle with sins of the flesh.  Laziness would be included in a list of those and it is one that absolutely tops my personal list of those that I am guilty of.  I’d rather randomly cruise around the internet than do anything that can truly be described as productive.  Maybe lay around and […]


Review: Notebooking Pages Lifetime Membership from

Our family has recently has the opportunity to review Notebooking Pages Lifetime Membership from  I was so excited about this review because I knew right from the start that this resource is a gold mine for all things Notebooking and unit study related.  My only concern about this review is that my words won’t adequately describe just what […]

Review: Self Paced Bible from Veritas Press

Recently our family has had the opportunity to review a new course!  It is the Self-Paced Bible from Veritas Press.  Oh how excited my kids are!  We’ve been big fans of the Veritas Press self-paced courses for a couple of years now.  They are always so much fun for my boys and incredibly in-depth.  Our expectations for this course […]


Growing in the Word, Fear!

As my children prepare to attend a day camp for the first time I see that we are needing to tackle some fears.  My children have generally never been big fans of the unknown.  One result of homeschooling them is that they’ve never really had to go too awful far without Mommy or Daddy or […]

Review: My School Year (Homeschool Record Keeping)

I’ve been a planner junky since elementary school!  There, I said it!  I always loved carefully copying down all of the important details of my studies, or life.  I get a thrill out of being organized (well, on paper at least… don’t look in my real life closets or drawers) and having a plan.  Every […]



Review: First Start Reading from Memoria Press

  My little Joyanna is just about a month away from her 5th birthday.  She’s definitely not a baby any more. In fact, if we didn’t homeschool she’d be heading to Kindergarten this fall.  I just can’t even imagine that!  Just like her brothers before her she is a pretty bright kid and therefore she’s […]


I COOKED! Yeah, Go Ahead & Laugh! My Mother Did!

I’m NOT a cook.  Never have been!  Every guy I ever dated enjoyed cooking.  My husband once considered a career in culinary arts.  It was a prerequisite for any man that I married that he would be willing to tackle most if not all cooking chores… including grocery shopping. I’ll be out and about with […]


It’s only taken 34 years! Or, would you like a Starbucks Gift Card?

Who doesn’t love their coffee? I’m not kidding! How often have you heard someone say that they can’t start their day without their cup of Joe? How many times have you said it? What would you do if your coffee maker went kaput one morning? Or are you the type that makes a detour, a […]
