The Pencil Grip, Inc. Thin Stix 6 pk of Classic Colors Review

Sassy loves to color, paint, draw - if it's creative and crafty, she enjoys it. I like it when that creativity doesn't create a huge mess. The Pencil Grip, Inc. provides mess free, fast drying tempera paint in their Thin Stix 6 pk of Classic Colors.

Another Meet in the Books

Today was the 2nd track meet of the season. It was a LONG day! We left the house at 5am and got back after 10pm.

Little Red only competed in 1 event at this meet - javelin. She came in 2nd and had a new personal record.

Sassy competed in long jump, javelin, and 800m. She doesn't normally practice 800m but wanted to do something for her 3rd event. She struggled but it was a good experience for her. She had a pretty good day at long jump, coming in 18th out of 42 girls her age. Her best event was javelin. She came in 2nd and had a new personal record by 2.5 meters.

Soccer Girl ran the 3000m and 1500m. She came in 4th in the 3000m. The 1500m was late in the day (around 5pm) and she didn't run as well as she wanted.

I'm super proud of all 3 girls!

Track Meet Time

It's that time of year again! We had the first track meet of the season today. It was a long, HOT day, but I wouldn't change it for anything (well, maybe the hot part).

I am so proud of all of my girls!

Little Red and Sassy both competed and had personal bests in all of their events. While I'm excited when they place and earn ribbons, I'm just as excited when we see how much their hard work has paid off because they have improved. It's one of the things I like most about track - the emphasis on competing against yourself.

The twins volunteered to help at the meet and worked really hard. They ran results from the different events all over the complex in to the timing tent and the awards area.

All four girls displayed good attitudes most of the day (they aren't perfect LOL), and I couldn't be more proud to be their mom.

Daily Bible Jigsaw App Review

I love doing jigsaw puzzles. I know they aren't for everyone, but personally, I find them relaxing. Trying to figure out where each piece fits allows me to relax and focus on that instead of whatever might be going on in my "real" life. Unfortunately, due to space issues, I'm not able to work on physical puzzles very often. Since it might take me several days to complete one, I have to leave it out on a flat surface, and with homeschooling, there are very few flat surfaces that are available that aren't used for eating or schoolwork. Now, thanks to Planet 316, I can get a daily puzzle fix online with their Daily Bible Jigsaw.

SpeedyPrep Review

As hard as it is for me to believe, college is right around the corner for The Boy. Having to eventually pay for five children to attend college means that many discussions have been had about how to reduce the costs for us. One of those ways is for The Boy to try to earn college credit from home before he goes off to school. By taking CLEP exams, The Boy could potentially earn many of his general education requirement credits if he earns high enough scores. He has started working on College Algebra CLEP prep using SpeedyPrep.
