Home School Navigator: Reading and Language Arts Program {a review}

Home School Navigator~Reading and Language Arts Program ~a review
I am always on the lookout for a good language arts program. We are huge into having literature based studies in our schooling, and English is an area where I really am picky. I want quality children's literature mixed with excellent reading comprehension activities. Some programs don't include adequate grammar or writing which can be frustrating. When I had the chance to review the one year subscription of the Home School Navigator Reading and Language Arts Curriculum from Home School Navigator I was excited to also learn about their interactive notebooks. Would this be a language arts program that could work for my soon-to-be third grader?

Adventures in Crochet~ Pattern Testing, WIP, and FibreShare (Take 2)

It's more than time for another crochet update. I actually sort of stopped crocheting for a bit when the weather got warmer and we started kicking our gardening in gear. But I'm back at it as I try to finish a WIP (work-in-progress) and am working on testing a pattern for someone. Oh, and did I mention I'm giving another round of the FibreShare a go? I hope you enjoy this little bit of catching up with my Adventures in Crochet!

Kids Email~ Ad Free, Spam Free, and Totally Safe for Kids {a Review}

Kids Email~ No Ads, No Spam, Safe! {a review}
A couple years ago, my boys were able to have their own email with Kids Email. They thoroughly enjoyed their year subscription, but we opted to not continue it at the time. My oldest (now age 12) has asked me quite often in the recent months if he could have his own email to send messages to his friends. Because of my personal experiences with so many email providers, I did not want to sign him up with any that I have used myself. Needless to say, when I learned that we had a chance to review the annual subscription for Kids Email Safe Email for Kids again, I knew the boys would be thrilled. I was curious to see if anything had changed.
