Teaching Caroline about Jesus and the Bible is very important to us. We want her to have a faith of her own that grows and develops at an appropriate pace and level for her as an individual. Part of that has been finding children’s Bibles that work for our family. (By way of background for […]
Although Caroline isn’t anywhere near ready to start taking college level classes, I wanted to review JumpCourse because I know there are many people who read this blog who have right-brained children, gifted children, and children who otherwise simply learn and think outside the box. Online learning can be a great option for children like […]
When I was contacted by Grammarly, I have to admit I was skeptical that I would really find the website that impressive. I was wrong. This is a great tool that could definitely be of use for homeschoolers, parents and teachers. What is Grammarly? Grammarly describes itself as an automated proofreader and personal grammar coach […]
If you are a blogger and want to take your website to the next level, I highly recommend iBlog Pro. This ebook is FULL of excellent information from experienced bloggers. I personally contributed the chapter “Setting Up Your Blog for Passive Income,” a topic near and dear to my heart! The major sections all have […]
I’ve written in detail before about how I use GrapeVine Studies for Bible and how much Caroline and I enjoy using it. She always wants to do Bible first and thoroughly enjoys the hands on, drawing aspect of it. If you have a right-brained learner, this might be just the thing for you as well. […]
I happened across A Family for Old Mill Farm at a children’s bookstore a few years ago. I immediately bought it because it spoke to me. We were also looking for a house and I could relate to the search this family was going through. We didn’t end up buying a farm, but I understood […]
I have one of these Scotch Thermal Laminators and love it! If you have been thinking about one, Amazon has them on sale right now for $19.99! That is much less than I paid for mine!
I’ve been familiar with Grapevine Studies for a number of years. My husband, David, does graphic design work for them so I’ve been privy to see the different covers and products developed during that time. I always had in the back of my mind that it might be a good product to use with Caroline […]
I purchased Sticker Dolly Dressing Around the World probably almost a year ago. It sat on the shelf until it seemed like the “right” time to get it out and use it with Caroline. This fall was the right time and so we’ve been enjoying it! One of the things we like to do as […]
Amazon has the Insect Lore Butterfly Garden on sale right now for only $10.95. That is really an incredible deal. We did this with Caroline and it was so much fun to watch the transformation. You can also order more caterpillars afterwards so the garden is reusable. Highly recommended as a great learning experience!
Every once in awhile you see a book somewhere that draws you in and you know you have to buy it. Potato: A Tale From The Great Depression was that way for me. It brings a complicated time down to a simple level for children, showing them what life was like for one family during […]
My husband and I have been blessed with a creative little girl. She has more imagination in her pinky than I have in my entire body. She lives in a world of possibilities where her stuffed animals are her real friends and she’s never met a plot she didn’t want to recreate! So how do […]
