There are always books scattered around our house. It seems everyone around here likes to read more than one book at a time. Here are some of those books we’re reading this month.
Catholic Charlotte Mason Homeschool – Year 3 – Term 2
Timing worked out perfectly for our finishing up our term using Ambleside Online Year 3 – Term 2. We were doing exams the week before Christmas! This was a great stopping point and we spent the rest of that week and the following two weeks on break. The kids and I needed the break and we will begin again today with term 3.
Here’s our recap of Catholic Charlotte Mason Homeschool – Year 3 – Term 2
New Year | New Goals | 2018
After taking a month and a half off over the crazy holiday season, I am feeling refreshed and ready for the new year. Life was getting a bit overwhelming so a break let me spend my extra time with the ones that need me most, my kiddos.
As a Charlotte Mason homeschooler, I have seen first hand the way a book can take my children to another world. There is nothing like getting lost in a book and if it has a connection to history or the bible that makes it even sweeter. Barbour Publishing has taken the bible and created a new series that takes your children on an adventure.
Audio books and stories are a hit or miss. Many times we start an audio book only to realize the reader is not wonderful and we end up abandoning the audiobook. I’ve learned to do a bit of research before just choosing any audiobook. One company we love to listen to is Heirloom Audio Productions. We’ve listened to many of their audiobooks so the kids and I were excited to listen to their newest addition In the Reign of Terror.
In years past I have listened to a lot of Rush Limbaugh. I didn’t always agree with him, but I appreciate his strong opinion and how he can push me to think through the things I believe to gain a better understanding.
I remember when he began the Adventures of Rush Revere Book Series. At the time my kids were only 5 and 3 so I knew it would be a while before they were something they could dig into. Imagine my excitement when I was given the chance to review the Adventures of Rush Revere #1 New York Times Bestselling Book Series by Rush and Kathryn Adams Limbaugh this year!
I have taken a bit of a break from my Back to the Classics Challenge to read a few great mothering books.
I’m a sucker for books written about parenting, but motherhood is my favorite. I love that I can completely relate (most of the time) and that they have me laughing and crying throughout. There is something special about the bond of motherhood.
We are book lovers around here. There is not a room in our house that does not have a book in it… literally, even the bathrooms. Adding books to our collection is a constant thing. Which is why I was excited that we were given the opportunity to review the book I’d Rather Be Your Mommy by Home School Adventure Co..

Book with a Number in the Title – 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, was recommended by my husband. It is on our Ambleside Online schedule for year 5 as well, so it was both a free read for me and a preread in preparation for the kids.
