M.E.S.S.Y. Learning with PandaParents {My Review}

As many of you know, we were blessed with our second grandson last spring. According to our eldest grandson, I will be homeschooling his brother as well so when I had the opportunity to review MESSYLEARNING FOR PRESCHOOLERS AND KINDERGARTNERS by PandaParents, I thought it would be a good idea to get my head back into this age of learning.   At first…

Kid Safe Email from Kids Email {My Review}

  Over the past month, we’ve had the opportunity to review the annual subscription to Kids Email Safe Email for Kids from Kids Email. I don’t know about your kids but our grandson is always asking about getting his own email so he can send messages to his friends and family so he was pretty excited when he heard we would receive an account…

All-Bran Muffins – Blogging Through the Alphabet

I decided to start off my Blogging Through the Alphabet series with my favourite bran muffins. Of course, I could have done just muffins under the letter M but then it wouldn’t have reminded me of my gramma’s best bran muffins, hot from the oven with a generous piece of cold butter slowly melting into each half. Now, these were…

Kayla Jarmon Books (My Review)

I recently had the opportunity to review three books by Kayla Jarmon . Two of the titles were from her Discussion Book Series,  and the third was a storybook, A Boy and His Dog.   The first thing you’ll notice about Kalya Jarmon’s writing is that she does it from a Christian worldview. This makes her books a great fit for families that teach…

She and Kirsten had so much fun last round I couldn’t resist. When Amanda first approached me about joining in I imagined myself staring at a blank screen each week and decided I should…

CodeWizardsHQ {My Review}

  These days it seems like every almost every child you speak to wants to learn computer coding and to design their own games and/or comic strips. EJ is no different so when we had the opportunity to review a special one-time class from CodeWizardsHQ we were quite happy about it. CodeWizardsHQ offers 12-week courses on Python, HTML/CSS, and JavaScript. The graphic below…

Media Enhanced Books from Weigl Publishers {My Review}

There is nothing I like better than receiving new books so when we were given an opportunity to review three titles from Weigl Publishers I jumped at the chance. Not only did we receive a PDF version of each book but we also got to check out the online enhancements to them. Our first book, and the simplest in terms of enhancements, There…

Memories of My Hometown

I love learning about history. I especially enjoy learning about the history of the area where we live and have brought up our family. I suppose it shouldn’t come as a surprise then that 35+ years ago (didn’t we look young?), we chose the tiny church at our local historic park for our wedding. (My great gramma had seen a…

Driving Along the Cowboy Trail

Day 4 of our drives through Alberta history found us heading southwest of Calgary along the Cowboy Trail. We only had a few hours so joined up with the trail in Black Diamond after leaving Okotoks and our visit to the Okotoks Erratic (aka The Big Rock, a huge glacial erratic that was moved and left here by glacial ice.)…
