Schoolhouse Review Crew ~ Wizzy Gizmo

        Wizzy Gizmo…now that’s kind of a funny name that catches your attention, isn’t it?  It definitely caught ours!  We were fortunate, along with other members of the Crew, to have the product of our choosing from their Christian education resources for our review.  As we love audio stories in our family, […]


Back to School 2014-2015 ~ Our Middle School Curriculum Choices

      Here we are…in our sixth year of homeschooling.  Wow.  I have no words for the amazement that I feel at all we have accomplished. I do know that we are here only by the grace of God and the support that we have received from all of our family and homeschool circle […]


Schoolhouse Review Crew ~ Roman Roads Media

      School during the summer?  Not so much for us.  We are NOT year round homeschoolers.  But I happen to be a part of this awesome group of ladies that thinks reviewing curriculum is super nerdy fun!  And our Vendors need us to tell you all about their amazing new products all 12 […]


Time With My Friends ~ THSC 2014

        So it’s finally here. Our annual Texas homeschooling convention that takes place at the end of every July/beginning of every August in The Woodlands is upon us. Now…don’t get me wrong….I love me some homeschooling conferences.  Heck, I even went all the way to Cincinnati this year for one.  But this […]


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 […]
