Trees and the Environment {With Infographic}

Trees benefits - Trees and the Environment

Did you know that one tree keeps a family of four alive for one year?

I have to admit, I find it amusing because I think I get asked this question from people who don't homeschool just as often than those who do. Regardless who is asking, it's a question that stops me in my tracks. It's not that I don't know what we're using, it's that it's not so easy. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Upcoming Changes

Under Construction

So perhaps you’ve noticed I’ve been much quieter than usual. Way back in June I mentioned that I would be making changes like rebranding without changing names. As you may have seen, that still hasn’t yet happened. In an effort to try to fix some of my medical issues, I was trying different things. Unfortunately, […]

Accountable2You Review

Accountability software

Accountability is important – especially when you have children. Even when I have put child settings into place and have been very direct about what is OK to visit and not visit, I know nothing is foolproof. There are so many inappropriate things the kids can stumble upon! Recently we have been using the Family […]
