Fitness Friday: Hiking and Walking

Posted in Fitness

This week, due to graduation and guests, I took a break from my 21 Day Fix program. Friday was Munchkin’s graduation. Saturday was her open house, and we needed to prepare for all of our guests as well as get everything together for the open house. Sunday and Monday we spent time with visiting family. Tuesday, we headed over to the Grand Canyon. Wednesday and Thursday we finished up our goodbyes to visiting family. Needless to say, it was a busy week. I quickly found that if I didn’t do any exercise after having consistently exercised almost daily for 2…

The History of Religious Liberty by Michael Farris

Posted in Reviews

Special thanks to MasterBooks for providing a sample of this curriculum to try out in our home. Our homeschool journey has come to a close, but learning never stops. With this in mind, we are continuing to work our way through The History of Religious Liberty by Michael Farris this summer. If you’re going to use this curriculum in a traditional homeschool setting, it counts as 1 credit of civics. It is set up to be done over the course of 1 year (34 weeks).

Fitness Friday: 21 Day Fix Week 6

Posted in Fitness

This week, we were prepping for Munchkin’s graduation and company, so I took a day off from the full workout here and there. On days when I didn’t get in a 21 Day Fix workout, I either did the 10 minute ab workout included in the program, or I just did a lot of physical labor. We’ve been enjoying beautiful weather, so it’s easy to spend more time outdoors getting exercise. Because I’m in such a routine with my exercise program, not doing the regular program has thrown me for a little loop. At the same time, I knew that…

Graduation Gift Ideas from Family Christian

Posted in Commercial Break, Family, and Holidays

Graduation Gift ideas sponsored by Family Christian. This post may contain affiliate links. I can’t believe that Munchkin is graduating this week. Yikes! I’ve been working on finding some meaningful gifts that fit with her interests, and we found some really great gifts at Family Christian. High School Graduation is a big milestone in becoming a successful adult. We want her to start off her adult life on the right foot by nurturing her faith. A new Bible with a special journal seemed to make perfect sense. When I found the Archaeological Study Bible, I knew that it would be…

Life Without Internet

Posted in Family, and Homesteading

Munchkin and I have been without internet for nearly a week. For me, it’s been a little frustrating at times as there have been things that I wanted to get done, but, at the same time, it’s been a rather productive week without the distraction that the internet can bring with it. (I did have access to my email on my phone, so I did my best to stay somewhat on top of that at least.) Munchkin, on the other hand, didn’t miss having internet at all which surprised me. When I asked if she wanted to head to the…
