I mentioned before that we became a track and field family this year. When we first started track, I had no expectations for this season with it being our first season and all. I take that back, I had one expectation - that my girls would have a ton of fun.

I love history, and I've been blessed with a few small people who also enjoy history. Living in South Carolina with its rich heritage, one of my favorite time periods is the Civil War. I was given the opportunity to review With Lee in Virginia, an audio theater CD set from Heirloom Audio Productions.

It's hard for me to believe that Ballerina is old enough to start higher level math soon. It seems like yesterday she was a 3 pound premie in the NICU, and now she has Algebra, Geometry, etc., right around the corner. We were given the opportunity to review UnLock Pre-Algebra from UnLock Math. This came at the perfect time since I had been debating about whether or not she was ready for Pre-Algebra this year.

History can be a difficult subject to teach. So often, kids think history is this dry, boring subject with no relevance to them today. One way to make this more fun to learn (and to teach) is to incorporate hands-on learning. Our family was given the opportunity to review Project Passport World History Study: The Middle Ages, an activity-based world history study from Home School in the Woods.

Sassy has been wanting to learn cursive since all of the "big kids" can write in cursive. I was given the opportunity to review the CursiveLogic workbook from CursiveLogic, and I knew immediately that this would be a great time for Sassy to start learning cursive.
