Why We Don’t Have Cable and We Are Much Happier Without It

Shortly after moving into our house 9 years ago, my husband and I decided that we wanted to lower our monthly bills. In order to do this we decided that our cable was one of the things we could cut and we would be saving quite a bit of money in doing so. Yes that means that we don't have cable and haven't for the last 9 years. We are much happier without it too. Not only would it save us money, but we have been quite appalled at the things that were starting to be on cable television. We try … [Read more...]

Amazon Prime ~ SO Much More Then Just Free Shipping

I have been a member of Amazon Prime since 2007, yes that means for almost the last 10 years I have been a member.

Depending on the meal we are having I might have to make some sides to go with … [Read more...]

Paul Bunyan

We spent 2 weeks learning about Aesop's Fables and really enjoyed this. After we finished our Fables we spent a week learning about Paul Bunyan, during this time we learned 5 different tall tales about him. Both of the boys thought these tall tales were very funny. Paul Bunyan also spent time in Michigan, and there are a few different statues here in Michigan, which the boys though was really neat. One day, our theme was Paul Bunyan and the flapjacks, the boys used the recipe card from Mother … [Read more...]

Aesop’s Fables ~ The Lion and the Mouse

Our topic last month in our Mother Goose Time curriculum was Fables and Folktales. During our studies we spent 2 weeks learning about different Aesop's Fables.

One of the activities was this fun craft which of course included everything you needed in the monthly shipment. The boys … [Read more...]
