Homeschool Crew Review: St. Bartholomew’s Eve by Heirloom Audio

Now that we’re driving a minimum of 1.5 hours a day, we’ve been burning through audio books; in fact, that is one of the main ways we get some of our school done despite driving so far every day.  We were recently given the opportunity to review St. Bartholomew’s Eve by Heirloom Audio, and we […]

Homeschool Crew Review: CashCrunch Careers

Right now, being a homeschool mom and driving my kids to therapy and extracurricular activities takes most of my time.  I do work part-time from home in a very limited basis, but I know in less than 10 years, my kids will be grown and I might like to find a career outside the home.  […]

Laughing Giraffe Organics Review

Our family is always looking for good quality snack food.  While I can find some locally in grocery stores, I also order online, but that can be tricky with the Arizona heat.  I recently found a new company that makes yummy snacks, Laughing Giraffe Organics.  Best of all, their delivery service includes an ice pack […]

Hiding Places by Tori Kelly: A Review and Giveaway

I’m always looking for music with a deeper meaning than the simple pop music on the radio.  I recently received a copy of Tori Kelly’s new album, Hiding Places, due to release September 14th, and it is unlike anything I’ve listened to before.   Tori Kelly grew up listening gospel music, and she wanted to […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Math Refresher for Adults

Math is not my forte.  In Algebra I, I either easily understood a concept and got A+s or I was completely confused and got D-s.  When I moved on to Geometry the next year, I really struggled.  My patient teacher met with me every day after school until finally, at the end of the fall […]

Homeschool Crew Review: White House Holidays Unit Studies

I’ve dabbled in unit studies with the girls, and while they don’t make up our entire curriculum, I do find that unit studies give us a nice break from our regular curriculum.  Recently, we got to try a new unit study curriculum, White House Holidays Unit Studies, courtesy of Silverdale Press LLC. About Silverdale Press […]

Homeschool Crew Review: ARTistic Pursuits, Inc.

In our house, we’ve been long time fans of ARTistic Pursuits, Inc.  However, I always wished that some of their lessons included a video; as luck would have it, they’ve recently developed a new program that includes video lessons.  Currently, there are six volumes in ARTistic Pursuits Art Instruction Books with DVD and Blu-Ray, but […]

Homeschool Crew Review – Classical Composition I: Fable Set

One of the things that I love about homeschooling is that I can pick curriculum that is tailored to my kids and their preferences, and that can vary even with kids in the same family.  While Cuddle Bug loves to listen to read alouds, PB & J Girl does not.  She much prefers diligently working […]

Homeschool Crew Review: Kids Email Safe Email for Kids

Bookworm (almost 14) has had his own e-mail account since he was 12 when we got to review Kids Email Safe Email for Kids.  In fact, we love Kids Email so much that when our free subscription ran out, we bought another year.  I plan to use this for my kids for several more years […]

Homeschool Crew Review – Jacob Deshazer: Forgive Your Enemies

What can I say?  We love YWAM Publishing‘s books.  This year, Cuddle Bug, who just turned 8 and is in 2nd grade, has learned all of her American history through listening as I read aloud to her all of the books in the Heroes of History series.  We supplemented that series recently by reading a […]
