Flowering Baby Age Two to Three Year Curriculum Review

Flowering Baby offers a complete Curriculum from Birth to Age 5. As a homeschooling mom with 2 “school age” children and a toddler I have to admit I don’t often give our toddler the attention he needs in regards to learning. It’s easy to find projects to keep him occupied while I’m working with his […]

Apologia Zoology 2 Review

I have heard so many positive reviews for Apologia Educational Ministries that I was extremely excited to have the chance to review Exploring Creation with Zoology 2: Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day. In fact, I’m not sure who was more excited: the kids or me! We also had the opportunity to document our experiences […]

Why I Love Teaching Math

My favorite subject has always been English or anything related to English: Grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, etc. There is no doubt I have a love for them. Overall, though, I was always an A/B student, so there weren’t really subjects I had trouble with though I definitely liked and disliked some more than others. When […]

Dare to NOT compare

I think one of the challenges of homeschooling is the pressure to compare your kids with those in public or private schools in their age range or even other homeschool kids their age. I think this is common of parenting in general, but I think the reason it’s so prevalent when you’re homeschooling is because […]

Homeschooling: 2012 Recap

2012 has been interesting for us in many ways. We began many new adventures!

I knew I was going to continue homeschooling even though we had just […]

Homeschooling Distraction

I knew this year would be more challenging now that Chaz is a little older and still quite demanding when it comes to getting attention. So, I figured since I would be working with Brayden and Aurora together he would either a) demand my attention in other ways or b) want to join in. I […]

Sick week

Sure we all have sick days here and there, but last week was a sick week in our house. It was terrible! We had a stomach bug that trickled through the kids and me, and I got it BAD. I haven’t been that sick in a long time! I couldn’t even get on the computer […]

We have a curriculum

Well, I did it! After tossing around the idea of getting a curriculum this year or just making my own, I decided to get a curriculum! Talk about a last-minute decision! I wasn’t feeling well again today (it’s a medication issue I hope will be fixed early next week!), I ended up just resting for […]
