Enjoy Lunch Outdoors with a Convenient Picnic Blanket!

Spring, Summer, Fall. No matter the season, if the weather is nice chances are we’re doing some homeschooling outdoors. Generally we will pack our lunches and either do school and have lunch right in our backyard or enjoy some time at the park. When going out and about, though, it’s important to keep everything quick […]

Talking Shapes is Now Online {Talking Shapes Review}

Recently, our youngest son (age 6) has been exploring a familiar phonics program in a different setting. Previously for our Talking Shapes review we reviewed this program as an app on their iPad. Now Talking Shapes: A Supplemental Curriculum for Early Literacy is available online. This phonics supplement from Talking Fingers Inc. is ideal for […]

Eating is Fun with FunBites!

Eating can be a challenge around here. Our youngest is particularly picky when it comes to eating. Partly it is because he has Sensory Processing Disorder, so texture and size can pose challenges. Plus, he is sensitive to flavors, so strong flavors aren’t handled well. Because of this, though, he’s hesitant to try new foods. […]

Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree {Star Toaster Review}

We love educational apps. This is especially true when we’re constantly out and about like we have been lately. I love that we can take learning on the go! Our daughter has been using Orphs of the Woodlands at Tangletree from Star Toaster. Star Toaster offers interactive books with fun, educational games. Their online interactive […]

Keep Mosquitoes (and Zika) Away with Natrapel

Mosquitoes are a pain. When a mosquito bites me it almost always looks like I have welts all over. Being bitten and getting itchy is just part of the problem, though. The diseases mosquitoes can carry are also a problem. From the West Nile Virus to the Zika Virus, mosquito bites can really be serious, and […]

A Watch for the Outdoorsman

It’s that time of year when we spend a lot of time outdoors. My husband particularly loves his time outdoors, and a outdoorsman needs a certain type of watch. Shiny metal watches are too flashy and heavy. Plastic watches get sweaty underneath. That’s why a wood watch is the ideal outdoorsman watch. Disclosure: I received […]

Beric The Briton {Heirloom Audio Productions Review}

We have really enjoyed the audio adventures from Heirloom Audio Productions. It really brings history to life in an exciting way. They offer stories that take children back in time and introduce Christian Heroes for Christian kids. Their latest in The Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty is Beric The Briton. I was definitely excited to […]

A Better Egg {And a Breakfast Burrito Recipe}

When it comes to food labels things just aren’t straight forward anymore. I used to think buying “Cage Free” eggs was ideal until I learned what’s really going on. “Cage Free” no longer means the hens are treated humanely or have plenty of room to live naturally. Now it simply means they’re not in a […]

Revisiting an Old Favorite in a New Way {ABeCeDarian Review}

A few years ago we had the opportunity to share our ABeCeDarian review. ABeCeDarian Company offers a reading program that addresses the key areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, and fluency. It was a new way for us to learn reading, and I was recently considering starting it with our youngest (age 6). When I was […]

Online Art Lessons {ArtAchieve Review}

Our kids have completely different feelings about art. Our daughter absolutely LOVES art and could draw all day long every day if given the opportunity. Our oldest son, though, really doesn’t like it much at all. His feelings are more because he feels like he can’t do it well, though. So I was definitely excited […]
