Where I Find Good Reading Lists for My Elementary Students

I love to read, and when I was little, I always wanted my mom to read to me.  My mom was busy taking care of me and my brother who had cerebral palsy plus running a daycare out of her home.  When night came, she just wanted to relax, so once I learned to read, […]

What I Read with the Kids: July, 2018

Last month I started a new little feature–what I read aloud to the girls each month.  Cuddle Bug loves, loves, loves to be read to, and right now, that is how she is getting a lot of her schooling.  We’re also in the car for at least an hour a day, so we try to […]

Homeschool Crew Review: No Longer Little: Parenting Tweens with Grace and Hope

A work colleague once told me, there’s a reason God turns your sweet little toddler into a raging, hormone-fueled teenager–so you’ll be ready for them to leave the nest.  Indeed, navigating the tween and teen landscape can be difficult, but a new book by Great Waters Press, No Longer Little: Parenting Tweens with Grace and […]

Homeschool Crew Review – Love, Honor and Virtue Book

What I Read with the Kids in June, 2018

I thought I’d start a new little feature–what we read each month.  Cuddle Bug loves, loves, loves to be read to, and right now, that is how she is getting a lot of her schooling.  We’re also in the car for at least an hour a day, so we try to listen to audio books […]

Homeschool Crew Review: CursiveLogic

Teaching my kids cursive is very important to me.  I know that some schools no longer teach cursive, but when I think of all of the historical documents that are written in cursive, I just can’t think of my kids not learning it.  Bookworm learned while he was still in school and now has beautiful […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Drive Thru History Adventures

I’m a history buff as are Bookworm and Cuddle Bug.  PB & J Girl (9), not so much.  In fact, getting her interested in any history has been a struggle, until we had the opportunity to review a homeschool video curriculum by Drive Thru History Adventures with Dave Stotts.   About Drive Thru History Adventures […]
