During the summer months we tend to do a lot of tent camping. While the boys absolutely love the outdoors and camping, we still always bring toys and games from home to entertain them once the sun starts going down or in case bad weather hits.

Layered Drinks

Layered drinks…how many of you have ordered one in a restaurant or noticed them on the menu?  I’ll be honest in saying that I wasn’t exactly sure how it was done, but they always looked awesome and tasty. layered

This 4th of July we decided to do the layered drinks for the kids. My husband had his doubts at first if we could pull it off since we had never done it before.  I told him if it fails, it fails.  We looked at it as a science experiment for the boys. Isn’t that what us homeschool parents do? There are always new things to learn. Read the rest of this entry »

Our 3rd Grade Curriculum 2015-2016

This year after having my upcoming 3rd grader beg to do computer classes for some of his homeschool lessons, I finally gave in.  This was hard for me because I enjoy spending that time with him and teaching him all these amazing thing.  After debating this a lot, I finally agreed to let him do three subjects on the computer.  I figured it wouldn’t hurt to let him try it and during his computer lessons, I would work with his younger brother.homeschool Read the rest of this entry »

Old Fashioned Novel, Devotional & DVD #OldFashioned

AsTheyGrowUp.com received product to facilitate this review. We give our honest opinion of products. Some post may also contain affiliate links

Last week I was telling you about an awesome movie that we had the chance to preview called, Old Fashioned. Hands down, it was one of the best that I have watched lately and takes a look at courtship. While I have been married for awhile, I have daughters that are 23 and 20 which are obviously in the dating world as well as other friends and family members. So many times we see them getting discouraged with trying to find the “right” one.Old Fashioned Collection Read the rest of this entry »

I tried jumping on the stainless steel bottle wagon..I really did, but for some reason I just couldn’t get past the taste it gave my water. I literally drink over a gallon of water a day, our entire family basically only drinks water, so to put it in something that makes it taste funky to me just isn’t what I want to do.glasstic Read the rest of this entry »

Cheesy Zucchini and Corn recipe

Now that the veggie garden is really starting to produce, I always have an over abundance of Zucchini.  Not that I’m complaining at all. It’s actually one of my favorite veggies, but I try to keep the dishes interesting so the family doesn’t get bored.  The recipe below is one that I actually use to prepare my patty pan squash (still waiting on its arrival) so I decided to modify it and give it a shot with zucchini and it turned out fantastic!  IMG_8927
