Choosing Curriculum For Your Only Child

    At the beginning of our first year of homeschooling, I made a trip to our local homeschool bookstore to choose “curriculum” for my only child…a Kindergartener at the time. Yep.  I did.  But that’s a whole ‘nother story.  Falling under the category of the “things we would say to our rookie homechool mom […]


Celebrating A Decade!

  Last week we celebrated a decade of life with our sweet girl, Zoe Lynne.  She was so thrilled to have some of her best friends join her for a trip to Main Event, dinner and cake, swimming, slumber party fun, and just overall craziness!  We are blessed to do life with some of the […]


Schoolhouse Review Crew–Veritas Press Self Paced History

    So I know I’ve told most of you all about how I LOVE being a part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, and how much our family has been blessed by the many different products we have been able to review!  And along the way, I think you’ve heard about at least a few […]


Schoolhouse Review Crew ~ Go Science DVD’s

        I am always in search of “fun” ways for my daughter to learn…something outside of the norm of book work that can grow tedious.  When the opportunity to review the Go Science DVD’s (Series 2) from Library and Educational Services, I jumped on it!  Ben Roy, a dynamic and engaging University of  […]


A Little Slice of Heaven…..

  Before we even made our move, we had a piece of property picked out to build a home for our family and one right next door for Grandma.  The process of finding our lot, figuring out what we are going to build, proceeding with clearing the underbrush….all of this has been very exciting!  My […]


The City of My Heart…..

      After almost six or seven years of back and forth, and two years of actual preparation and decision making, we’ve made it. To the city of my heart. The funny thing is, I didn’t even know which city that was going to be.  I just knew beyond the shadow of a doubt […]


Homeschooling in the Summer

  We are not a year round homeschooling family. We actually follow the traditional school schedule for the most part, since my daughter engages in at least 2-3 outside classes each year. For the sake of the teachers being able to have a schedule, most of the time those classes will follow the August through […]


Constitution Quest ~ Our Review

      Are you and your family game players like we are?  If so, I have a recommendation for you that needs to be put at the top of the list!  We received this gorgeous box from Pam and David Barrett with Constitution Quest, with rich colors and high quality materials, and I squealed […]


Creating New Homeschool Circles

  Friends, I am writing to you today straight from a tender heart.  It is tender because I am coming up on a season of our lives in which I will need to help my sweet almost ten-year old girl make new friends and create new homeschooling circles of her own in the community to […]


Schoolhouse Review Crew–Trident Case for the Samsung Note 3

      Recently we at the Schoolhouse Crew had the opportunity to step outside of our usual curriculum reviews and do a little something different.  We joined with Trident Case to help get the word out about their aMAZing cases for smartphones, tablets and eReaders.  I received the KRAKEN A.M.S. case for the Samsung […]


What NOT to Forget…When Moving Your Home{school}

      We have exactly 12 more nights in our home of nine years before we make our next to last move for a while.  Then approximately nine months later we will make a move to what we think will be a mostly permanent home for us.  And by the grace of God, this […]
