February Morning Basket

I'm sure you hear the talk about morning baskets all around the homeschool streets!  Well, we have always set aside time in the morning for things we like to do before we start "schooling" sort of like a warm-up.  I just never called it morning basket until now.  We are officially on the morning basket train, well almost official, I still need to find a basket.  I wanted to share with you what we have in our morning basket for the month of February.

The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls - Books 3 and 4 Book Review

Hey, Y'all!  The kids and I are back with an awesome book review, just for you!  This series is one of the kids' favorite.  We all love to read for the most part and we are always looking for a good book to listen to or curl up on the couch and read. It can get tough sometimes trying to find appropriate books that are entertaining and give good life lessons or morals.  I was very curious when we were offered the opportunity to read books 3 and 4 of The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls series from WorthyKids, an imprint of Hachette Book Group.  We had never heard of the series or of the author, M.J. Thomas, so I did some research.  Needless to say, I was impressed, so go grab your coffee and join us as we take you back to Bible days.

IXL Learning - Our Review

There are some days when we hit a roadblock in our curriculum.  No matter how the Teacher's Manual explains it, the drawings I write on the whiteboard or the amount of time I spend trying to break the question down we just can't get past that problem or concept.  Have you ever experienced that frustration?  I know it makes me feel so defeated.  IXL Learning is the perfect program to help you overcome those days!  Our family received a free full annual membership to IXL in exchange for our honest review.  Go grab your notebook and a cup of coffee or tea and join us while we tell you all about our experience with IXL.

For the Temple: A Heirloom Audio Production Review

If you have been reading our blog for a while you know how much I enjoy Heirloom Audio.  Their audio dramas are amazing, I can't say enough good things about them!  Our family was recently chosen to review their newest production, For the Temple by G.A. Henty, which is about the fall of Jerusalem. You know I jumped at the opportunity!  I used to be the type of person that had to have the physical in hand to enjoy it, but I have found myself starting to appreciate audio books almost just as much now.  I can't believe I just said that!  It is the truth though. Yikes! Anyway, enough with that go grab a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and come on an adventure with us as we tell you all about For the Temple.
