HSMJ the one about frogs, gifts & Truly Scrumptious

In my life this week…
When I commenced my new adventure with The Schoolhouse Review Crew I never in all my life imagined the blessing it would be to our family.  On Thursday this week the postie arrived with a 14.1 pound box couriered from the US with a new math program for us to try.
I was also blessed with a blog award by Homeschooling for His glory :)

      Excited to hear that you are happy with the SRC:) In fact you made me doubt my decision to not join afterall. I'll be intrigued to hear your opinion re time commitments etc
      Intrigued by the sound of your math and music program, would love to know more.

      I hadn't realised your sister moved here, I thought it was a holiday!! Woo hoo!!!!!

      1. It's wonderful having my sister here. So much fun getting to know each other.

        SRC time commitments are as much as I want them to be which is great. I have full control over what I do or not do. The manual made it sound huge but it's not at all. The math and music program review's are for next month :)

    2. Sounds like a fun and busy week! The stage production sounds wonderful. I hope you have a great week.

      1. It was a busy week but a very pleasant one :)

    3. We too have had the parcel excitement with the addition of the maths tools in our house. As for piano, I have been totally swamped by requests to play piano. They just keep lining up to do a round robin with it. So far 6 of us have begun, hubby is waiting for the novelty to wear off a little and then he'll have a play too.

      1. I have not had any negative response to the piano yet ... So far I'm really impressed :) Looking forward to hearing your review.


    I love to hear from you so please leave your comments below ♥
