Manhood Journey Review

Let’s face it. Parenting isn’t an easy job. As parents, we strive to do what’s right while raising our children and in turn hope that we pass on our values and believes to them as they head out into the world. Where there certainly isn’t a manual that tells us how to raise our children, for the past several weeks my husband has been using Manhood Journey Father’s Starter Kit, a father son Bible study, from Manhood Journey & City on a Hill Studio. This is a wonderful concept to help bring a father and son(s) together. Read the rest of this entry »

Educational Insights: PlayFoam GO!

It’s hard to believe that travel season is just around the corner. In fact, our family took out on our first road/camping trip just this weekend and had an amazing time.

I get it that the driving part can at times be hard for the little ones. It seems all the “I spies” and “20 question” games in the word can’t keep them busy for too long. That’s why I always plan ahead and bring items that I know will keep them busy for the long haul. Be sure to keep an out for our complete list, but for right now I want to highlight a product that was a life-saver this weekend, Playfoam Go! Read the rest of this entry »

Math Mammoth Review

Math…This is one subject that is hard for me when it comes to purchasing a curriculum for my boys. While I admit it isn’t one of my favorite subjects of all times, it’s less of a favorite with my oldest son. Since math can be a challenge for both he and I, a solid, easy to follow curriculum is what I look for. Davis and I have been working through the Light Blue Series Grade 5 Math curriculum from Math Mammoth and so far, so good.
