D.E.A.R. Monday - August 22

The last couple of weeks have kicked my tail. I don't know why, but every year I forget how tough the first 2 weeks of school are. After the first 2 weeks, we usually settle into a routine and things get easier. I'm hoping now that we are entering the 3rd week of school, I will have more time to Drop Everything And Read.

Enlivenze LLC FlipStir Puzzle Review

My girls love to do puzzles. In fact, during our daily read aloud time, each of them grab a puzzle and a place on the floor. Needless to say, we were excited to try the FlipStir Puzzle Statue of Liberty from Enlivenze LLC.

Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids Review

In today's multicultural society, learning a second language is a must. I have been looking for a program that is ideal for helping my children learn Spanish. I was excited to review Starter Set 1 from Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids with Little Red.

CTCMath Homeschool Membership Review

It is extremely important to me that my children are well-grounded in the basics - reading, writing, and especially math. I've mentioned before that my girls sometimes struggle with math, so it's always good for me to find ways to supplement their math curriculum. This summer was a mix of maintaining the math skills they already have while trying to improve the areas they are a little weaker in. Having access to all grade levels through the Homeschool Membership from CTCMath was extremely helpful in allowing them to do that.

D.E.A.R. Monday - August 1

If you came here last week looking for D.E.A.R. Monday, I apologize. I was with Little Red at the USA Track & Field National Junior Olympics. There was plenty of time for me to Drop Everything And Read on the plane and in our down time, though.

What a Week!

This week, Little Red and I flew out to Sacramento, California, for her to compete in the USA Track & Field National Jr. Olympics. After a crazy day of flying and arriving home at 5:45AM, I am too exhausted to write much today. I will share our trip with you all in a couple of days when I've recovered from jet lag!

Here's one picture of her with her teammates walking in for the Opening Ceremony.
