So, you printed an ebook…what are your choices for keeping it all together? I’m going to share with you the simple, cheap, and easy method I devised the other day to bind eBooks using something you probably have in your desk drawer right now (and how I’ve made printing less aggravating, too). But first, let’s compare the pros and cons of some typical binding methods you’ve probably already used. The… Continue Reading
Sometimes I wonder if people think I’m “super religious” now that I’ve joined what is often perceived as this strange, cultish “movement” known as Hebrew Roots. I’ve been accused of being Jewish. I’ve been asked what is going on with me now. I’ve seen some curious looks cast my way. People think it’s weird that I don’t eat pork and feel sorry for me because I’m missing out on the… Continue Reading
Homeschooling Torah is celebrating their TWO year anniversary! We started using Homeschooling Torah two years ago, so it’s been exciting to watch this community grow. The Elliot’s are just wonderful, supportive people and I really appreciate all they do to make this curriculum amazing. The support from the HT community of members is terrific too. You feel like part of the family there. Not something you get with most curricula, right?
If you homeschool, getting your kids to do school in the summer can be an issue for you at times.

This latest experiment was called Tongue Map (you can find the instructions here) and the results were interesting. We put salt water, sugar water, lemon juice and cocoa powder mixed with water (which is almost like trying to mix oil and water. For real.) in little cups and… Continue Reading
The prosecuting attorney’s first question to the prospective jurors was “So, was everyone excited about getting their jury summons?” The response was…crickets. Except for me. I actually was! Unfortunately, I was not one of the 14 in the jury box, I was number 17, and I sat in the first row of the gallery seating – hoping they’d dismiss some of the jurors and I’d get a shot. Even though… Continue Reading
In my recent review of The SockKids Meet Lincoln, I mentioned that I had asked the authors some questions. Their answers were terrific and I didn’t want to truncate them, so I decided to write a separate post. If you haven’t yet read my review, you can do so here. You can also download a copy of The SockKids Meet Lincoln here on Amazon. AUTHOR INTERVIEW 1. How long have… Continue Reading
My friend The Homesteading Hippy and I hit the road and headed to Cedar Point for BloggyCon 2013! As a busy homeschooling mom who is venturing into the world of serious blogging, this conference meets three specific needs: 1. ADULT CONVERSATION. Before we even left my town, Heather astutely observed my obvious lack of opportunities to converse with grown-ups. I guess I was talking non-stop or something. Hey, I’m excited… Continue Reading
