Math-U-See Algebra 1 Review and Your Choice Level Giveaway

When we reviewed Math-U-See years ago I fell in love with the program. It was able to teach my daughter math concepts that she was really struggling to pick up. Math became a subject she dreaded doing, until she did Math-U-See. Since then it has been the only math program we have used for all of our kids. I even have our high school students take the Stewardship class for their 4th year of high school math to understand savings, interest, how to balance a checking account, and more. The Math-U-See curriculum is a little different then most math curriculums, the way Continue Reading…

By-Design-Inquiry-Based-Science-Curriculum-Review

By Design ~ Inquiry Based Science Review

Finding a science program for my upper middle school and high school kiddos has been a struggle. One of the big issues with most science programs I find is that they are not creation based, but teach evolution. I don’t want my kids to have to filter through all the evolution based parts in the curriculum. When you do find a creation based science program it is a struggle to find one that is more hands on verses reading and testing over and over. I don’t want my kids just filling up their time with curriculum, I want them to actually Continue Reading…

Chapul High Protein Energy Bars and Flour Giveaway

Happy Earth Day!! Today I have a great product to introduce to you that is made using sustainable materials and the proceeds help to conserve water in the Colorado River. It is a perfect product to share with you on this Earth Day. My first experience with Chapul was on Shark Tank. Honestly I kind of thought it sounded disgusting to eat energy bars that were made with cricket flour. On that episode of Shark Tank, Mark Cuban signed a deal with the company, because he believed in their product. Since the show they have redesigned the packaging of their product Continue Reading…

We will be graduating our first homeschooler this year. It is such a special time for all of us, knowing she has worked so hard to get to this point and she will soon be going out into the world on her own, that part is bittersweet 😕 .

I couldn’t think of a more perfect gift then the wonderful memory quilt Continue Reading…

The trusted brand Petz brand has just released 2 new titles for kids for the Nintendo 3DS just in time for the holidays! Petz Beach 3DS as well as Petz Countryside.
