DSCN2639_thumb.jpg

Company Information: Started in 1992, Progeny Press was created by a husband and wife team who saw a need for quality literature guides that teach “classic cultural literature combined with a Christian perspective”.

E is for Everyday Blessings

bloggingalphabetnew.jpg

  As I contemplated what to write about using the letter “E” this week, I thought of so many different things, such as Exciting Events, Enchilada Bake, Extra Special Days, etc. These topics were ok, but then I thought of Everyday Blessings and I knew I had hit on the right title. We all need …

Sacagawea (Knowledge Quest) – A Schoolhouse Crew Review

I have been drooling over the products found at Knowledge Quest for years now. I always stop at their booth at curriculum fairs. If you love history and geography then you have got to visit their sight and learn more about all that they have to offer. The company was started in 2001 by a …

D is for Derby Race

DSCN2567.jpg

For the last two years we have enjoyed participating in the Pinewood Derby Race at our local church through the AWANA program. This experience has been good for father/son bonding time and I have really seen David and Drew grow through the process. You are given the wood block and wheel set and given a …

Reading List 2013 – spring update

I love to read, but over the last ten years reading for pleasure has become almost non-existent for me. The addition of kids, homeschooling, a bigger house, etc have put a drain on my time and I found myself only reading for or to the kids. Anyone get my drift? I read Llama, Llama Red Pajama until …
