Making Summer Memories: Without Breaking The Bank

For most of us the school year has come to an end and now we are trying to figure out exactly how to keep the kids active and entertained during the summer months.  For us personally, since we homeschool our year ended at the end of April.  We took a short little break and are back to it for a couple hours a day, but that’s just a couple hours.  What to do with the remainder of the day? Being on a budget means no awesome beach vacations or heading to the zoos or aquariums to help fill our day.  We live in a small down so we have to drive a minimum of 2 hours in one direction to get to most of those activities.  That doesn’t mean my boys are bored by any means.activities Read the rest of this entry »

Through the Shadows – Golden Gate Chronicles #3

I recently finished the book, Through The Shadows by Karen Barnett. This book is set in San Fransisco in the early 1900s, and is the third book in the Golden Gate Chronicles. This was a delightful read that I quickly fell in love with. The characters were well thought out and I love how Barnett doesn’t give you all the story at one time. Not knowing what was going to happen, is what kept me wanting to continue to read this book.Through the Shadows
