Homeschool Crew Review: Jump In, 2nd Edition by Sharon Watson

My two with dyslexia haven’t had much formal writing experience because I’ve been working just to get them to be proficient writers.  Now that PB & J Girl is going into 5th grade, I felt that the time has come to teach her writing skills, but which program to choose?  I was already familiar with […]

Homeschool Crew Review: The Kingdom Code & A Giveaway!!

My kids, like most kids, are eager to make money.  The problem is that many of the traditional avenues to make money are closed to them.  They’re too young to get a traditional job, but they’re never too young to become entrepreneurs.  Bookworm has started a little side business doing lawn work for our neighbors, […]

A Video Homeschool Crew Review: Louis Zamperini – Redemption

The girls and I recently got to read a book about one of my favorite people, Louis Zamperini.  I love his story but didn’t feel it was appropriate for my girls (ages 9 and 10.5) until we discovered Louis Zamperini: Redemption by Janet and Geoff Benge, part of their Heroes of History series by YWAM […]
