2016 Indianapolis Library Book Sales

The dates are in and the first Indy Library Book Sale of the year is upon us! These are my absolute favorite times of the year. We always try to hit half price day where we can all buy to our heart's content and spend less than $20. The sales are held at the Library...

Visiting Ancient Egypt with The Cat of Bubastes {Review}

Some of you may be new to homeschooling so let me tell you the homeschoolers’ secret weapon: audiobooks. As my kids get older, we end up driving around more and more. Between classes outside the home, field trips, and longer road trips, we spend a lot of time in the...

KidsEmail.org {Review}

Little Man has been bugging me for a while for an email address. He just turned nine, and he’s at an age where some of his friends are using email, plus he hates that every time something says “enter your email,” he has to use mine. I’m pretty sure right now it has...

Christian HomeSchool Hub {Review}

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one place that had all the supplemental material you might need for your homeschool? I think this to myself all the time. We don’t use a lot of worksheets, but sometimes that’s the best way to reinforce an idea, and I hate having to...

A Road Trip Win: FlipStir Puzzles {Review}

We take a lot of road trips. My favorite way to educate my kids is through hopping in the car, driving a few hours, and seeing something new (to us) and historically significant. One problem with road trips, in our family, is how to entertain the kids on the ride. One...
