Flying is definitely not one of my favorite things to do.  I hate turbulence, and even though I know it’s irrational, every time there is turbulence, I worry that the plane will crash.  Recently, I’ve been trying to put my fears to rest by learning more about planes and how they work thanks to the […]

Homeschool Crew Review – Time Traveler American: The Civil War

This year, we inadvertently ended up studying The Underground Railroad because Cuddle Bug kept picking books from that area of the library.  That lead to the girls earning a badge from American Heritage Girls about the Underground Railroad.  So, a natural fit was to next teach them about the Civil War, which we have been […]

Homeschool Crew Review: UnLock Pre-Algebra

The Story Travelers Bible: A Book Review

While I went to church every week growing up, and I also attended a Catholic school through 6th grade, reading the Bible was not something that was emphasized.  I want my kids to have a greater understanding of the Bible and to learn the stories in the Bible at an earlier age. One book that […]

Kari Jobe “The Garden” CD Review and Giveaway
