Peacock Performing Arts Center

This past Friday, we took our first field trip of the school year to our local playhouse. The Peacock Performing Arts Center is located in beautiful Hayesville, NC was build in the 1980’s by Lilith Lidseen.  Her dream was to build a performing arts center for the people in our area. While she didn’t live to see the theater finished, it turned out to be absolutely amazing.IMG_0626 Read the rest of this entry »

The Wild Life In Theaters Sept. 9

Prizing and samples courtesy of Lionsgate.

TheWildLife-NewBannerThe Wild Life is set to hit the big screen on Sept. 9 and my boys are super excited, and why shouldn’t they be? From the over-exuberant parrot Mak to the snack-obsessed tapir Rosie, from the persnickety echidna Epi to the acrobatic pangolin Pango, from the ditzy goat Scrubby to the commonsensical kingfisher Kiki and the always-cool chameleon Carmello, things are larger-than-life on a tropical isle that is pure wild animal paradise. Then Robinson Crusoe, a marooned human, arrives in the midst of a furious storm, and their lives are forever changed by this bewildering new “creature.”

Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids Review

Capture_zps4hs26a6tI have been wanting to bring Spanish into our homeschool for a couple of years, but I wasn’t sure how well I would be able to teach the subject or if it would be worth the time.  Why is that?  When I was in school, foreign language wasn’t required, so I chose not to take it.  My girls did have it in high school and I remember how frustrated they would get trying to learn a different language.  They completed their course, but neither one of them can speak a word of Spanish. So watching my girls having such a hard time when they took the class, mixed with my fears that I wouldn’t be able to teach it is why I have been putting it off.

Save Money on Diapers With Luvs & Ibotta

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

Let’s be honest here, being a parent is expensive! This time of year can be pretty rough for some families. The endless list of school supplies, back-to-school clothes and of course necessities. Luvs understands that back-to-school time can be pretty challenging for us moms, and that’s why they are currently offering a great money-savings opportunity to all parents with little ones.Ibotta Image 1

This month Luvs is offering not only a $2 print-at-home coupon, but for a limited-time a $5 rebate on any boxed variety of Luvs Diapers, 64 ct. box or larger. How awesome is that? Read the rest of this entry »

Debunking Evolution: What Every Christian Student Should Know DVD Course

Up until the point that we started homeschooling our children, I had never learned about the science behind the Bible. Growing up in church and continuing as an adult, it’s just something that was never taught. Over the course of the past four years in our homeschool, we have studied the science behind the Bible and it’s been such an amazing adventure.Debunking_Evolution_DVD_PNG_large Read the rest of this entry »
