Timberdoodle Kindergarten Core Homeschool Curriculum

January 29th, 2010 (No Comments)

We started out the school year using different curriculum but needed to step up the work just a bit and came across this website and this package was exactly what I was looking for. I had other parents recommend the same books Timberdoodle did so I knew their recommendations were reputable. All of these books […]


Charlotte Mason Companion

By reading this book (Charlotte Mason Companion) you will learn what your homeschool could be.  My children love this way of learning and I love it too.  I get to read living books to them not textbooks that are boring.  My children are in grades preschool through highschool.  We love to learn and have fun […]

My kids got Hexbugs for Christmas and positively LOVED them.  They played with them a lot and enjoyed them very much… until they started having problems.  One Hexbug got kicked (not really hard, and not into anything) and a leg came off on Christmas day.  And now, in mid-January, another’s legs have gotten bent out […]


Bubber and Thinking Putty

We bought Bubber and putty for some of our children at Christmas. It all was a BIG hit with the kids. Today I am ordering one more Bubber and an additional putty…for me and my husband. Yes, the parents like this stuff as much as the kids. A.H. MS


Kathe Kruse Nicki Baby

There’s just something about the Nicki Baby.  Unlike my daughter’s other baby dolls, Nicki is just full of personality.  She’s friendly and soft and cuddly and I even find myself picking her up and cuddling her. I bought one for my one-year-old for Christmas and when it first came I was a little surprised at […]


Balancing the Sword Review

January 13th, 2010 (No Comments)

Balancing the Sword is for a serious fill in the blank kind of kid or adult.  It overwhelmed even my most dedicated workbook oriented child.  I think it is very thorough, but there is so much out there I think is better.

Teaching Textbooks Algebra 2

January 12th, 2010 (No Comments)

EVERYTHING is explained! After using Saxon and ABeka math for years, our children have really enjoyed the switch to Teaching Textbooks.  EVERYTHING is explained! Teacher preparation time is a minimum.  This curriculum has interesting facts about the history of mathematics woven into the lessons; witty tutorial computer CD’s that visibly teach and are searchable by […]


Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons

January 11th, 2010 (No Comments)

I heard about this (Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons) book from my sister who had used it with her children.  I used it with my two youngest sons when they were about 3.  I remember I was almost in tears, when my middle son read a stop sign.  With my youngest, […]


Wahoo was the favorite gift.

January 8th, 2010 (No Comments)

When I first saw this in the catalog I thought it was so silly. I thought that I’d never pay that much for a blow up toy that would probably wind up in the corner. Then I watched the little video and thought about it some more and decided that my 2 year old might […]
