What’s Up Wednesday

Good Morning! I hope your week is going well. Ours has been good and a little rough at the same time. The rough part wasn’t that bad, just kiddos not wanting to do chores or some school work I wanted them to complete.

We had a fun trip to a local farm. They boys learned more about planting and growing pumpkins. They got to feed some ponies, goats and a donkey. We went through a straw and a corn maze. Then they took us out to the pumpkin patch by way of a hay ride. A little bumpy, but lots of fun. Lol After we rode on the hay ride back to the farm’s store we enjoyed some cider slushies. It was a beautiful day too. The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect.

What have you all been up to this week? Anything new and fun, or has it been a rough week?

Just to let you know, we will be having our next Thinking Tree Journal giveaway this Friday! I will let you know the time soon! I will also be scheduling the Grammar Galaxy Review and the KidArtLit review soon. I am still waiting on some clarification on some things. I think you guys are going to love all of these products! Let me know if there is a product you would like me to check out for you and I will see if I can do a review for you. I just found a neat product that is like legos, but that shows up on a tablet as you connect them. I have contacted them and am hoping to get to do a review and at least a coupon code if not a giveaway! So, let me know if you have any thoughts! I hope you all have a fun week! Talk to you later!

Chime in!

When should I have my next Thinking Tree giveaway?

I want to make sure and include working mamas, so I am going to show the book and leave the video up for you all to leave comments (That’s how you are entered to win). Then I will post the winner the next morning. Let me know when you all want me to have the The Thinking Tree Journal giveaway! What day of the week is best for most of you?

I will also be scheduling the Grammar Galaxy review and giveaway soon. The boys are really enjoying it, so I can’t wait to share it with all of you! Please share about the giveaways! I hope you have a fantastic day!

I have to say: Facebook has nothing to do with either of these giveaways.

Oh My Goodness!



Guys! I am so excited! Do you all remember when I told you about a monthly subscription box called Kidstir? Well, I had applied to become an affiliate and told them that I would really love to get a box to review for all of you. It had been a while so I thought they must have denied me the affiliation. Well, last night I got two emails! One with the approval and the other a personal one from the affiliate manager welcoming me to their program! I can not wait to get this box and to show and do it with my boys and show all of you! God is opening so many doors it is amazing! I am meeting awesome people and ….I don’t even have words! Please keep sharing my blog with anyone you think would like it and be encouraged by it! I want to share all of these things with people to help them find fun and unique things to do with their kiddos. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and watch for the link to Kidstir to pop up on my blog page. I will be getting it on there soon! Talk to you later! Mandy

What’s Up Wednesday

Morning guys! I hope your week has been going well. Ours has been a little abnormal….good, just not our normal schedule. Monday we took off just to spend some time relaxing together and Ben hadn’t been feeling well so he needed the extra rest anyway. Yesterday the boys and I went on a Field trip to our local state park for a homeschool bird and wildlife demonstration. Did you know hummingbirds only live in North and South America, that there are over 320 different breeds and only sixteen of those breeds live in the US and only one breed lives in our home state of Ohio? I was blown away! Lol I thought I knew a lot about our local birds, but I was schooled. Lol WH and LH really enjoyed it. They loved seeing a wing from a hawk and different sized eggs and skulls. It was pretty neat. WYH didn’t really get into it, he just kept climbing up and down on the fence rail beside me. Lol After that we took a little drive to get a small treat and then headed home to finish up chores and play. LH had gymnastics yesterday evening. Ben and I took him and dropped him off then went on a mini date and got a couple of Auntie Ann’s pretzels…those are so yummy! Then we headed back to watch LH for the rest of his practice .

That’s about all we had going on so far this week. What have you all been up to? Anything new or exciting? How does your schedule usually go or are you a more spontaneous kind of family? Let me know! I love to hear about different styles of homeschools. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week! We are looking forward to another field trip tomorrow! Talk to you later! Mandy
