Ya'll, can I just say I was blessed to score some MAJOR deals this last week from CVS. First off, if you don't have their app on your phone, download it and tie your CVS card to it. This allows you to see your personal coupons they send you each week. You can use their store coupons AND manufacturers coupons stacked together which is how I am able to get some amazing deals.
Part of homeschooling involves record keeping and planning. Recently, I had the chance to review My School Year (Homeschool Record Keeping) from MySchoolYear.com.

When we went on our first cruise 8 years ago, I was overwhelmed with trying to learn all about cruising before we actually went. I wanted to make sure I was getting the best deal as well as knowing all those little tips that experienced cruisers knew.

I am really blessed that all my kids get along very well. Sure, they are like most siblings and have their occasional spats, but for the most part, they truly enjoy each other. I think homeschooling has really solidified their relationships, even with the age differences.

We recently had the chance to play and review a brand new game from Sunya Publishing, Sunya The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Multiplying and Dividing. We have found over the years of homeschooling that some of the best ways to help solidify learning, is through simply playing games! Who doesn't like to play games?!

It's coming up on one of our favorite times in the world of gardening, the ripening of our strawberry patch! We started picking a few strawberries this week and anticipate the crop taking off soon. In addition to making jam and freezing whole berries for smoothies, we also like this refreshing salad. Combining our strawberries with the spinach from our garden, this salad can easily be thrown together with pecans I keep in the freezer.
I know, the thought of spinach and strawberries together sounds a little odd but even my picky-eating husband likes this salad!
