Creating a Masterpiece - Review

The latest curriculum that we added to our homeschool has been by far one of my most funnest reviews this year! We were able to take a subject and make it something for the whole family to do together, me included! The kids and I definitely made some memories and had a blast while completing a variety of art lessons via the Monthly Plan from Creating a Masterpiece.

Note, this is not my child but the photo that the vendor asked we share.

I'd Rather Be Your Mommy - Review

Being a mom is one of the hardest jobs ever! I know most of us definitely wouldn't trade this job for anything in the world but sometimes both our kids and us moms need a reminder of that. What better way to remind us that we'd always choose being a mom over anything else then to have a book dedicated to this specific topic! I'd Rather Be Your Mommy from Home School Adventure Co. is the perfect book to sit down with your little ones to cuddle up and read.

Happy 1st Birthday Mia Grace

I literally blinked and before I knew it, my 8th baby turned 1 year old today!! I don't know where the time has gone! (Actually, I do, she's been high needs at time and often only wants mama to nurse a lot due to her laryngomalacia and reflux I'm sure). But that's ok, they are only little for such a short time.

I started her birth story not long after she was born, but again, it's taken me awhile to chip away at it due to not having 2 hands free very often. And the few moments I do find myself alone, I have a lot of other work to stay on top of but hopefully soon I'll get her birth story posted.

Happy 1st Birthday my sweet girl! Your smile & personality has brought us so  much joy and I can't wait to see how God continues to shape and mold your precious life!!!

Eclectic Foundations Language Arts Level A - Review

This year we started kindergarten with my 5 year old daughter. I remember when I first started homeschooling 12 years ago, I was piecing everything together myself as there wasn't nearly the resources available like there are today. We were recently introduced to Eclectic Foundations Language Arts Level A from Eclectic Foundations and had a chance to review it.
