"T is for Tree: A Bible ABC" Review

I love having good books around our house for everyone to read. We were asked to review a new book, "T is for Tree: A Bible ABC" by Reformed Free Publishing Association. It is recommended for children ages 3-6, and my youngest is close enough to that range that we wanted to check this book out.

PandaParents Review

We were asked to review MESSYLEARNING FOR PRESCHOOLERS AND KINDERGARTNERS from PandaParents recently. My youngest is past the suggested age range for this program. She is in first grade, but does 2nd-4th grade work. Keep that in mind as you consider if this would work for younger children!

Kids Email Review

The internet can be a scary place for young children. When Kids Email offered us the opportunity to review a one-year subscription to Kids Email Safe Email for Kids we really wanted to participate!

We have reviewed KidsEmail in the past and we liked it then, so we wanted to use it again. There are so many safety features that allow my children safe access to email so they can communicate with friends and family digitally. I love that I can give them the opportunity to learn early since email is something they'll use their whole life.

Weekly Recap: With two weeks!

Is it summer yet? My kids are starting to feel like it should be. Some days we do great with school and get done quickly, and some days we drag on until dinner. Now that it's warm (hot) outside we are counting down the days!

CodeWizardsHQ recently asked members of the Homeschool Review Crew to review a special one-time course they chose to offer homeschoolers. My two older children wanted to participate so we chose from the offered dates and times and waited for the class. This is a live, online coding class for kids (middle and high school students.)

Unfortunately after we were assigned to this review, they had to change the dates. That meant we were not able to participate because we could not attend any of the other classes.  But I still wanted to let you know what I learned about CodeWizardsHQ.

Weekly Recap: With the hermit crabs

I'm beginning to think that life will never slow down again! I feel like I've got to decide what to drop before I go crazy. And to add to that we celebrated my birthday last week.

Last week I took my son shopping for dress pants. We had to buy him 30x34 slims! They are huge in the waist (he should wear a 27 but that doesn't exist), but they are the only thing long enough for his tall legs. Then he got sick and didn't go to church anyway.

E had an orthodontist appointment and received a nice surprise.. her expander came out! That means she also got to stop wearing her headgear at night. This headgear was gently encouraging her upper jaw to grow forward and just look at how well it all worked! She has a retainer for night time now.
