The Captain Sun Adventures {My Review}

What 11-year-old boy doesn’t like reading comic books about super-heroes? Not many that I know so we were happy to have the chance to review Book 1, Rescue Me! What Superheroes Can Teach Us About the Power of Faith from The Captain Sun Adventures. Opening our Captain Sun adventure I saw right away that there was an introduction from author Bryce Morgan directed to…

Learning is More Fun When Papa Gets Involved in Our Homeschool

Those of you who read this blog regularly know that I homeschool our grandson and that we travel quite a bit. During our travels (and while at home) we always make sure to have the whole family involved in EJ’s education.

Your favorite tunes playing on the radio and the sunshine warming your arm as it lays along your driver’s door…wait…what warm breezes?

Our Visit to the Canadian Museum for Human Rights {Wordless Wednesday}

Q is for Quick and Easy Quesadilla {Blogging Through the Alphabet}

If there is one thing our grandson loves it’s a yummy quesadilla so I had no doubt this would be my recipe for the letter Q. We all love Mexican food so when EJ moved up from eating baby food and was looking for something on the menu at our favorite restaurant, a cheese quesadilla was the sensible choice. A…

This language arts program is the product of the partnership of Erin Karl (her mother developed the Analytical Grammar program and Erin followed in her footsteps and became a teacher) and Jerry Bailey (he’s the technology guy and an expert in his field as well). Since this program…

A Visit to the Manitoba Museum {Wordless Wednesday}

We are spending the Labour Day week in Winnipeg, Manitoba and had the opportunity to visit the main galleries of the Manitoba Museum. It’s quite an amazing place!

P is for Pasta Salad

Summer seems to have passed by so quickly this year, it’s hard to believe we are heading into the Labour Day long weekend already! In honour of this last barbecue season of summer I thought I’d share my daughter’s favorite pasta salad. She got the recipe several years ago from a friend in Nova Scotia and has added her own…
