Failure Breeds Success

I want my children to fail. There - I said it. While I hate seeing my children upset, I know that failure is good for them.

Do I mean that I don't ever want them to succeed? Absolutely not! I love watching my children succeed and celebrating those successes with them. But without the failures, those successes don't mean as much.

Gr 7 Lightning Lit Set Review

When I look back on my junior high and high school days, the classes that stand out the most in my mind as the most loved are my literature classes. My English teachers introduced me to classics as well as to books I would probably have never picked up on my own. I feel like it's because of this that I enjoy a variety of genres in my reading life today. It's extremely important to me that my own children get a solid foundation in literature and that I find a curriculum that will help me to accomplish this. I was delighted that Brittany and I have had the opportunity to review the Gr 7 Lightning Lit Set from Hewitt Homeschooling Resources.

The Wars of the Jews set Review

 I've mentioned before how much Brailey enjoys history, especially Biblical history. It amazes me how much she can tell me about the Bible and the events taking place in the world during biblical times. To say she was excited to be able to review The Wars of the Jews set from Memoria Press would be a HUGE understatement. The moment the package arrived at our house, she was ready to dive right in and get started!

Stitch Maynia Completed!

I did it! I managed to do some stitching every day but one for the entire month of May. I worked on 14 different projects. Here are the ones I did this past week.

The three Santa's are separate patterns, but I will be combining them into one finished project.



This last one will eventually be a Clemson football helmet with a tiger paw. It's not much right now, but there are over 600 tiny stitches in this already.

Supercharged Science Review

At my house, science is one of those subjects - you know, the ones that can often be accompanied by heavy sighs and slumped shoulders. In order to make it at least slightly interesting for my girls, there needs to be some hands-on, tactile learning going on. Just reading about it in a book is not enough to catch their interest or comprehension. Supercharged Science makes this so much easier with their e-Science Homeschool Science Curriculum.

EdAlive Review

Like most kids today, my children enjoy spending time on the computer. It makes it much easier for me to justify that time if it's being spent doing something educational. We were very excited to have the opportunity to review Maths Invaders Online and Typing Tournament Online from EdAlive.

WIP Wednesday (on Thursday) May 23

It's been quite a week! The first summer track meet of the year was on Saturday. I made sure to bring my stitching, and I was so glad I did. Britt and Caelin raced at 8am and then didn't have anything else until javelin at 1:30pm, which meant LOTS of time for stitching.

I know I worked on something last Thursday and Friday, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it was.

Saturday and Sunday were spent working on The Evil Fairy from the Magical SAL.

Monday and Tuesday were spent on The Giver of the Red Apple from the Magical SAL.

Wednesday I started Santa With List from The Design Works Crafts, Inc. Collection. This one has turned into a fairly quick stitch.
