CLEP Prep with SpeedyPrep (Review)

When we started homeschooling nearly seven years ago, I thought it was hard. There’s enough information, opinions, and comparing out there to make a novice homeschool mama want to pull her hair out. Eventually, we found a groove and things were better. Four years ago we started high school, and I knew it was hard. I’m not a records-keeper. I never have been. (Note: Don’t be like Jen. Keep records!!) I’m more of a throw-awayer. … Read more…

Going (Kid-Free) To Convention With My Friend, Does It Get Any Better?

Shepherd, Potter, Spy–and the Star Namer by Peggy Consolver (Review)

Along with our regular read alouds, we’ve recently added Shepherd, Potter, Spy–and the Star Namer by Peggy Consolver – Author. This historical fiction story is about the Gibeonites from Joshua 9 and 10. Shepherd, Potter, Spy–and the Star Namer I began reading to everyone (ages 4-14), but soon only the 14-year-old was left. Not surprisingly, it is a bit much for the kindergartners. As a result, she and I took turns reading as we made our way … Read more…
