No Longer Little: Parenting Tweens with Grace and Hope {My Review}

This review is a bit of a change in pace for me, I received an electronic copy of No Longer Little: Parenting Tweens with Grace and Hope from Great Waters Press for myself to read and review.

Horses and Cowboys on 9th Avenue? Must be the Calgary Stampede Parade!

Bible Study Guide for All Ages {My Review}

We’ve had the opportunity to review the Advanced (5th & 6th grade) homeschool Bible lessons from Bible Study Guide For All Ages over the past few weeks. Of course, with summer’s arrival, we have been taking a lot of our learning outdoors and into nature so we tucked our pages into a binder, packed up our pencil case and Bible and found a nice…
