  1. These are great ideas, and I will definitely add a couple of these to my "check it out" list! It's nice to have a round-robin of ideas, when trying to plan a homeschool curriculum. So, this is perfect.

    And, I loved the idea for the mama, too... perfect choice - when the house smells good, chances are, I am happier. But, that just might be me? 😂

    1. Yup, totally agree---- definitely a mood booster for sure!

      Thanks for the visit, Anni!!

  2. These are great, Chris! That digital textbook bundle is something else!

    1. Yes---a great deal, isn't it?

      Thanks for stopping by Ginny!

  3. I keep toying with the idea of adding Life of Fred math to my middle son's schedule. He really doesn't like math lately but he does love to read... I'm just not sure where to start him off!

    1. Hi there and thanks for stopping over!

      I know what you mean about LOF! and love of reading! We enjoyed the Pre ALgebra and Biology book when my kids were middle school age...maybe that's a good place to begin??


  4. Hello Chris, great products to help the kiddos. Kudos to you for being a home school mom. Dedication and time is so important. Good to see you also included something for moms. Thank you for sharing at DI&DI. Have a great week.

    1. Linda, thanks for stopping by...and for your kind words!

      Yes, we need to make sure the moms are taken care of too, right? :)

      Have a great day Linda,
