If you read our week 23 update, you know that it was a rough week. That’s life and there isn’t much we can do about it. Homeschooling isn’t perfect and we all have our fair share of good weeks and bad weeks. Luckily, our bad streak didn’t last for long, and I’m happy to …
One of our favorite parts when it comes to homeschool is having an abundance of S.T.E.M toys that we can utilize throughout the day. Open-ended toys are one of my favorites to have for the boys and that’s why the Learning Resources Gears! Robot Factory Building Set made it on the list of our Top February …

It’s hard to believe that we are already on week 23 of our homeschool. This past week was one of those week. The ones where you find yourself praying for strength more than ever and questioning why you even homeschool in the first place. I felt like I was drowning and Friday wasn’t coming fast …

Winter in North Carolina can be very interesting. One day we have snow on the ground, and the next it’s 70 degrees out and the windows are all open. While this is the type of weather we are used to, it’s also the type of the weather that ends with at least one of my kids coming down with a cold.Read the rest of this entry »

So who has someone excited about the release of the new LEGO Batman Movie? I have two little boys that are beyond excited and are currently counting down the days until it hits the theaters on January 10. Not only is the release of the movie a big deal at our house, but also the app. That’s right..I said app. My boys have been playing this for a few days and love it.Read the rest of this entry »
It’ hard to believe that we are almost halfway through January. It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year!! With that, it’s time for me to share our January favorites in our homeschool.Read the rest of this entry »
As I mentioned earlier in a Wellness Wednesday, I pretty much fell off the wagon last year. As I approached the new year, I started looking back on what things I didn’t do last year. Reasons as to why I “fell off the wagon.” Here are things that I have done in years past, but basically failed to keep them up last year. Read the rest of this entry »
We try to go to the library weekly and while some times we pick out pretty good books, we’ve had our share of not so great reads as well. However, that’s to be expected from time to time and the plus side is we haven’t actually purchased the book. Read the rest of this entry »
I can’t believe that we are on week 20 in our homeschool. Sure, we’ve had our ups and downs this year, but the year has seemed to fly by. It seems like only yesterday we were cracking open our curriculum for the first time.
Groggle has been up all night making a Valentine’s Day card. This isn’t just any Valentine, though, and it has to be perfect – it’s for Snarlina, his beast friend in the whole wide world! Read the rest of this entry »

Well hello 2017. You seemed to have arrived at the blink of an eye and tried to catch me off guard at first, but after much planning and thought, I’m ready to take you on.
2016 was without a doubt a roller coaster. It was definitely a time for firsts. It was the first year that I was part of the Homeschool Review Crew team (which I loved); the first year I really worked on getting my YouTube channel up and running and the first year that I homeschooled more than one child, and wow was it different. I honestly don’t see how all you amazing mamas that have multiple children do it all in a day. I often find myself over-whelmed and struggling to find enough hours in the day.Read the rest of this entry »
Does the New Year really mean new curriculum? Not necessarily, but over our Christmas break I started to really look at and evaluate our current curriculum. I stopped and asked myself if what we were doing was working for us. I mean REALLY working for us, and if it wasn’t could I make it work? While I would like to think I could make it all work since we know that homeschool curriculum isn’t cheap, the reality is that if it isn’t right and you’ve tried making work then maybe… just maybe it’s time to look at other options.Read the rest of this entry »
It’s been sometime since I’ve done a weekly update. Life just got really busy and I was finding it difficult to get on and update with what our week was looking like. To catch you up to speed, we did take two weeks in December off which was amazing. Normally we don’t do that, but this mamma needed the time. However, that doesn’t mean that the month of December wasn’t an eventful one.Read the rest of this entry »
Part of the changes going on this year with the blog, is that I’ll be sharing with you our bi-weekly grocery hauls, as well as any savings and deals I run across. Here is a video of our first grocery haul of the New Year. We were running a tad low on a lot of things since I hadn’t made it out grocery shopping really since Christmas. All I can say, is thank goodness for the freezer meals that I had done a few weeks prior. They really did make life so much easier during the crazy holiday season. Read the rest of this entry »
