Tied 2 Teaching Review

Brittany absolutely loves math and science. Last year her favorite class at our homeschool co-op was her STEM class. Needless to say, we were thrilled when we were given the opportunity to review STEM Activities, Full Year of Challenges with Close Reading from Tied 2 Teaching.

Drive Thru History® Review

If I had the money, I would love to take a road trip (Would a road trip where you have to fly to your destination be called a plane trip?) to the Holy Land. Of course, I would have to take Brailey with me as my traveling companion since she has such a love for the Bible. To be able to visit places we've read about in God's Word would be absolutely thrilling. Although this may probably never happen, we've been able to experience the next best thing during our review of Drive Thru History® "Acts to Revelation" from Drive Thru History®.

Read-Aloud: The Door in the Wall

I'm joining many of my Crew friends in Blogging Through the Alphabet.

My theme for this trip through the alphabet is read-alouds. Some of my favorite memories from when my children were younger was read-aloud time. I loved snuggling up with them on the couch after lunch to devour a good book.

Homeschool Complete Unit Studies Review

One of the perks of homeschooling that I love is the ability to choose what and how my children learn. Letting them dive into a topic that they are interested in makes learning more fun for both them and me. I was extremely excited when we had the opportunity to review one of the Unit Studies from Homeschool Complete.

Read-Aloud: Amos Fortune, Free Man

I've rejoined the Homeschool Review Crew for 2019, and now I'm joining many of my Crew friends in Blogging Through the Alphabet.

One of my favorite parts of homeschooling when my children were younger was read-aloud time. So I've decided that my theme for this trip through the alphabet will be read-alouds.

WIP Wednesday - February 13

It's been a while since I've shared my Works In Progress. I'm still stitching away at Harry Potter and Hedwig and the Winter Wonderland Stocking.

Drop Everything and Read - February 11

Even though I try to get in some reading time every day, I wasn't able to finish any of my books that are in progress. The Harry Potter book I'm on now is extremely long - interesting, but long. ­čśä

Drop Everything and Read - February 4

It's the first Drop Everything and Read of February! I don't know about you, but January felt much longer than 31 days. The good thing about that was that I read more books that I anticipated. Here's where I am in my Reading Challenges, in addition to my list of what I'm reading now and what's up next.

Drop Everything and Read - January 28

Another week, and I've added more books to my list of finished books this year. So far I have finished 5 books in January! I'm hoping I can continue to fit in reading this much the rest of the year.

WIP Wednesday - January 23

Due to the extreme busyness of my past week, I didn't get to spend nearly enough time with my needle and thread. I'm really hoping that this weekend will give me some stitching time.

Caelin did attempt to teach me to crochet on Saturday. I think once I finally understand how to do it, I might enjoy it. For the moment, though, it just makes my head hurt. Ha ha!

I didn't get any work done on the stocking, so I'm not going to share that. I did do a little bit of work on Mr. Potter, though.


I would love for you to share what you are working on in the comments. Either share a picture or description or leave a link so I can see what you're working on. It doesn't have to be cross stitch.

Drop Everything and Read - January 21

My reading life has really picked up, thanks mostly to technology. I've kept a physical book with me in the car so I have something to read while waiting on my kids to be done with track practice, drama class, etc. I also have a book on my Kindle that I read before going to sleep each night. Now I've added an audio book, which is great for when I'm driving (like yesterday to and from an indoor track meet 2 1/2 hours away) or when I'm working.

WIP Wednesday

Another one of my goals this year is to spend more time on hobbies I enjoy, like cross stitching. So each Wednesday, I'm going to share my WIPs (works in progress). This is mainly just to hold myself accountable to actually get some stitching done because I don't want to be embarrassed to say I haven't made any progress from week to week.

Drop Everything and Read - January 14

One of the areas I want to FOCUS on in 2019 is reading more. Hopefully sharing what I'm reading with you all will help me to keep my focus.

2019 Word of the Year - FOCUS

Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe that 2019 is here. In some ways, 2018 flew by, but in other ways, it was the longest year ever. Our family went through some really crazy things back in early 2018, and it truly feels like all of those things happened about 5 years ago. Anyway, suffice it to say, I'm extremely glad 2018 is over and am anxiously anticipating what 2019 holds.

Instead of resolutions, I'm doing a word for this year, like I have the past few years. My word for 2019 is
