We school year round, however we do kind of a slow down in the summer months. We lean on our favorite educational apps (you can check them & more out HERE) more since we are on the go more and don’t want the kids to fall behind. We have more half days than full and a lot more free study (letting the kids choose what subjects/activities they’d like to focus on most), and we do A LOT more hands on activities and experiments, both for outdoor and indoor fun for those rainy or overwhelmingly hot days. Don’t worry, packs still get sent out, but you’ll also be seeing a lot more of our favorite summer activities and adventures along with them! Remember to check back often for new FREEBIES and more every week! Sign up for the mailing list and never miss any of the educational fun, get everything as soon as it’s posted with no annoying ad’s!

Amazon Shopping List
I want to make it very clear that I do NOT get paid to promote anything on the lists in anyway, nor does anyone I know. The products are not sent to me/friends/family to review. I have found and used/researched these on my own. I spend a significant amount of time each month on amazon searching around to find the best products to aid in our homeschool journey at the best deals! Now you can benefit from my hours of work as well! I have put together lists of teaching aids, books, kits and more that may prove useful and helpful on your homeschool journey as well! I have also put together a list of family matching clothing, shoes and accessories. Our youngest is very much into matching mom, so every spring we choose a few matching outfits and things that are always a big hit with our friends and family. Everything we have bought or simply just considered is on the list. Please note the sizes and colors displayed may not be the matching item. Also some things may say out of stock, however it may only be for the size and/or color that was selected when the item was added to the list. Click on the item to check the availability of your desired sizes/colors for sure.
AGIAN, I want to make it very clear that I do not get paid to promote anything on the lists in anyway, nor does anyone I know. The products are not sent to me/friends/family to review. I have personally researched and/or used everything on the lists above myself, (aside from the family marching products, some of those were considered and viewed but not purchased) which is why I feel comfortable recommending these items to you. If anyone finds a recalled or poorly reviewed product on the list that I may have somehow missed PLEASE contact me and let me know! I hope you find these list and their contents as useful, helpful, and fun as we have! If there’s a type of shopping list you’d like to see created please feel free to send me the request and I will do my best to set it up asap! Enjoy and happy teaching!
