Braving History with Rush Limbaugh – Rush Revere Series Review

Braving History with Rush Limbaugh – Rush Revere Series Review

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!

Taking a New Approach to Latin – Memoria Press Review – Latina Christiana Complete Set

Taking a New Approach to Latin – Memoria Press Review – Latina Christiana Complete Set

Latin was a subject I would have never thought to teach my children, but then again I never thought I would be homeschooling my children in the first place. Funny how life throws some amazing curve balls. Once I began thinking about homeschooling and doing research, I quickly saw how Latin takes a part in our everyday lives. We’ve done two years of Latin now, finished a program, and were ready to move onto a more advanced Latin program, this year. For this reason, I was excited to have a chance to review Latina Christiana Complete Set from Memoria Press.

Reading About Our Heroes – Heroes of History Review

History is all about digging a little deeper. One of the ways we love to do this is with a good book. One great resource for these historical biographies is Heroes of History from YWAM Publishing. We had the pleasure of reviewing Heroes of History- William Bradford and it was a wonderful addition to our Ambleside Online Year 3 studies of the Pilgrims. Read more

Preparing for the Week Ahead – Ambleside Online Year 3

Preparing for the Week Ahead – Ambleside Online Year 3

A few months ago, we ended our Ambleside Online Year 2 studies. After a few weeks off, we began Year 3 slowly. While we do homeschool year round, through the spring and summer we take it a bit slower to enjoy the weather and fun activities. What would normally take one week we are doing over two. This allows us a lot of extra time to enjoy a bit of a break and still have a structure in our days.

This year has also given us a chance to slowly transition into more independent work for both kiddos. At seven and eight years old they are both proficient readers. This slower pace is a great way to let them take on more of the readings themselves.

This is a great transition, but it does take a bit more work on my end in preparing Ambleside for the week.

Painting – Without the Mess – Thin Stix Review

Painting can be extremely messy!

We host a bi-weekly art co-op at our house with some homeschooling friends. There are six kids ranging from two to eight years old. The older five kids do a pretty good job of following the instructions and not making a huge mess, but my rambunctious two year old is another story!

Raising Superheros, and Reading About Them, Too! – Captain Absolutely Review

Raising Superheros, and Reading About Them, Too! – Captain Absolutely Review

My son is very interested in everything superhero, so I knew he would be very interested in the new book from Focus On The Family, Captain Absolutely.

 

 Captain Absolutely
We’ve always enjoyed the Adventures in Odyssey and Clubhouse Magazine from Focus On The Family so I was excited to have a superhero book that would be Christian based without extra violence. Little did I realize, the comic’s main character and the story came from the Focus on the Family, Clubhouse Magazine cartoon of the same name.
