Enjoyed learning more about you by reading the facts and your answers to the questions! Y'know, I don't think I've ever had Leg of Lamb... I've had lamb chops though - which I suppose is pretty similar.

Thank you for giving me the blog award. That's very kind of you. I've enjoyed reading about your homeschooling journey and activities. :-)

Thanks so much! What a great way to get to know you better. I like watching my children learn and discover as well. It really is a huge blessing to be a part of it. And, the fall is a favorite of mine too. Laughter gets me in trouble though. I tend to laugh too easily and too much...oh, that wasn't meant to be funny, foot in mouth...kind of stuff. Gonna have to ponder your questions.

Middle School Junction - Learning Independence and Responsibility

In my previous posts about Middle School I have shared about how I have been blessed with quite independent kids. I had promised a post about how I went about to encourage independence in my children. Here it is finally! First off I have to say that some kids are naturally independent, and in this case it is quite easier to cultivate that. With others, it is a bit more difficult and requires intentionality and being more aggressive about it. When you have kids who have learned to be independent and to own their learning, they end up being kids that do their school work, even if mom forgot to write a subject on the list of to do for that day. Here are a few steps I took in developing independence in the boys. Give them freedom - the first step is to gradually give them freedom in how they want the school day to go. Involve them in the decision making of what subjects to do each day and in the order as well. Build trust - the kids need to know that you trust them and expec

Keyboarding for the Christian School - TOS Review

  Given our technological era, the need for keyboarding skills is evident. Though I believe that proper handwriting should still be taught to our kids, teaching our kids to properly use a keyboard is very important if we want them to be able to survive in this age of computers and the likes. This being so, lots of companies try to develop keyboarding skills programs for our children. I received such a program a few weeks ago for us to try and review. Keyboarding for the Christian School is a keyboarding curriculum design to teach kids to learn to type efficiently. The program is in the form of an e-book as opposed to being an online typing program. You can either print the e-book or put it on a mobile device such as an Ipod, Ipad, Kindle or Blackberry, and read of of it as you do the typing, by propping it up next to your working computer (you could use a laptop too). The author of the program explains her choice this way: "W hy choose a printable e-book versus a web-b

Visual Learning Systems - TOS Review

I have to admit I am in love with our first review product from the 2015 crew year. We received a full year subscription to Visual Learning Systems 's Digital Online Science Program Elementary edition and S econdary edition . Science has always been one those subjects I am having all sort of trouble deciding what to use and never being fully satisfied with what we are doing. Well my search is over. I am really hoping to stick with this one. What is Visual Learning Systems? Visual Learning Systems is an online science publisher that provides quality science educational material through videos. They offer Unit Studies for K-12 in DVD or digital format, as well as a Digital Online Subscription for both Primary/Elementary  (K-5) and Middle/High School  (6-12). The program we received, the Digital Online Subscription, is totally online. Therefore you need a computer and an internet connection. It also works fine on tablets. When you sign up you get a log in for the stude
