Review: The Heart Changer

The Heart Changer is about the unnamed Hebrew slave girl who directed Naaman to the prophet Elisha. Jarm took those three verses and imagined the slave girl’s life, thoughts, and feelings and expanded it into twenty-five chapters. Overall, The Heart Changer was a good read.

Review: Hey, Mama! Homeschool Planner

I love making plans; planning has always been one of my favorite pastimes and I can get lost in planning fantasies (now putting those plans into action is another thing entirely). They say that writing things down helps get you on the road to accomplishment, which is a great thing, since I adore planners, and […]

Review: Supercharged Science

The girls and I have been thoroughly enjoying our review of the e-Science Homeschool Science Curriculum from Supercharged Science. Created by former NASA scientist and mechanical engineer Aurora Lipper, e-Science is an online Science subscription that allows you access to thousands of videos, lessons, experiments, and printable materials for grades K to 12. The materials […]

Box Day!

Nothing excites us HP girls as much as Box Day. Although if you ask The Hubby, we girls are extremely excitable, so it would be more apt to say that Box Days is one of numerous things that make us giddy and hyper and all chirpy. Homeschoolers will most likely know what Box Day is, […]

Now That You’re 12…The Hunger Games vs The Giver

Raine recently turned 12, and is, as she keeps telling me, an ‘unofficial teenager’ because she is already ‘two-teen.’ In return, I keep telling her that with greater age comes greater responsibility. Cue mom’s maniacal laugh, and kilometer-long chore lists appearing out of thin air, gently floating down and settling on Raine’s head, magically obliging […]

Review: CashCrunch Careers

We’re at that point in our homeschool journey that we have to start planning for Raine’s longer term future. In a few years, before she gets to senior high, she’ll need to decide on what track to take: Academic, which splits further into General, Humanities, STEM, and Accountancy and Business Management; Technical-Vocational-Livelihood, which includes specific […]

Review: Roman Roads Media

While I know that it’s considered a ‘dead language,’ Latin is the source of many of the words and phrases that we still regularly use today. Also, for some reason, Breeze has been asking to study Latin for some time now. So reviewing Picta Dicta Natural World from Roman Roads Media was such a joy. […]

Review: GrammarPlanet

I consider my English grammar skills fairly decent, pretty good even. My girls also speak and write quite well, following the proper grammar rules. When we got the chance to review GrammarPlanet, I thought it would be a good opportunity to just brush up on stuff we already know. I was in for a rude […]

Review: God Schooling by Julie Polanco

I recently speed-read through Julie Polanco’s book, God Schooling: How God Intended Children to Learn. It was both an easy and difficult book to review, and whether you like it or not, I will tell you why.   God Schooling came at a time when I was (still am!) struggling with our homeschool. We were […]
