Reset, Nest, & a special offer

When it comes to setting goals September is the new January right?  I love setting goals & planning for the year in January, but somehow over time, especially summer, those goals get lost and set aside.  That has felt true for me this year.  Circumstances way beyond my control, forced me to set some things aside and focus on each day as it came.  Maybe that has been true for you as well.  So now feels like the perfect time to do a reset.

A tool that helped me to just step back and reevaluate at the beginning of the year was the 14 day  Make Over Your Mornings and Make Over Your Evenings  courses.  I am pulling them out and doing a refresher course these last few weeks of Aug.  And now I will be thinking of ways to make it work even when life takes crazy twists and turns and isn’t perfect. (It seldom is!)   Each days challenge only takes about 15 min.  I love Crystal’s real and practical tips!  These courses are so affordable, trust me, they are PACKED with great information and tools.  And the really cool thing is, these courses are on SALE two for the price of one now through  Aug 15th. Buy either Make Over Your Mornings or Make Over Your Evenings for $10 (normally $17)!  And as an added bonus, if you buy one title for $10, you can get the other title for $7!  (two for the price of one!) So if you’re like me and your morning and evening routines could use a little makeover, Join me!  It will be fun & rewarding!


Nest Entertainment Animated Bible Stories

Nest Learning Home School Curriculum

Last week my son came home with a DVD that they had loved as kids, but because it was on VHS we no longer had  it!  Then he asked me, Do you think we could find the Nest video, The Swan Princess?  Of course I had to check it out and see if Nest was still around.  Back in the day Nest was a Direct Sales company, and because I wanted the educational videos for my kids, and at the time they cost around $30.00 each,  I signed up to promote them.  I was able to earn the set for my family, and we LOVED the stories.  My favorites are the Hero classics.  My kids loved to  watch them and learned a lot in the process.  These video are for younger children and are very well done.  Most of them come as an interactive DVD, which includes a free downloadable coloring/activity book, a quiz, and extras you can access on your computer.   I am planning to get some of our favorites again to have on hand when younger guest are visiting and would like something to watch.  There are sample of the movies you can watch on the website.

And Nest offers so much more!!  Here is some info…  In addition to our extensive library of proprietary interactive DVDs, dramatized audios, resource books and motion pictures, we offer a broad array of third party produced academic and faith-based curriculum, supplemental materials, supplies, toys, games and other resources. Our web sites feature over 100,000 different products  I am excited to share more as I discover more!

Cathy Duffy Picks from Educents!

I know school just finished, but I am already looking ahead to next year! Enjoy this list from Educents!

Cathy Duffy is the know-all when it comes to homeschool curriculum. She has reviewed hundreds of homeschool curricula to help educators like me make an educated decision when shopping for homeschool curriculum. So as soon as I see a product has been approved by Cathy Duffy, I am more likely to trust it. Here’s a handful of Cathy-approved educational picks available at

” target=”_blank”>Educents.com. I hope these double-recommended educational resources will relieve you from endless hours of shopping around for the best (and most cost-effective) homeschool resources.

Elementary Math & Science

Life of Fred Elementary Math

math books

If you haven’t heard of Life of Fred, you’re in for a real treat. Dr. Stanley F Schmitt is a math teacher who developed story-based math learning series that has taken homeschooling by storm! Forget rote learning that doesn’t resonate: learners follow the Fred and his pals through life and learn math concepts along the way. Kids sometimes don’t even know they’re learning math until they’re told!

Each book has a topic, like Apples, Butterflies, and Cats. I recommend supplementing math learning with science of social studies of the same topic!



Giant Butterly Gardengiant-butterfly-garden-lr2295-1460412033.0649.1481

This ties in with the second Life of Fred book so well! With the set little ones can learn about (and experience!) the miracles of metamorphosis. Available at Educents for $35.99.


Elementary Reading & Writing



I can’t say enough for story-based learning. It’s one of the oldest ways we’ve learned from each other – starting with fables that teach us to be good to one another.

Grammaropolis is a great tool for K-3rd grade learners on their quest for perfect English grammar, which isn’t always straight forward! This set comes with animated shorts, music videos, books and quizzes, so you’ve got a lot of learning styles covered.

Price: $40, down from $50



Middle School Math

Life of Fred Intro to Algebra


I really can’t say enough about the Life of Fred series! Kids learning algebra and beyond will enjoy the stories and learn the concepts through holistic learning. If your learner is new to Fred but at a more advanced level, it has been recommended that they start from the beginning. That said, re-learning a few known concepts in the Life of Fred framework will help them get up to speed with story and succeed with the series.

Price: $34.08 down from $38 at Educents.


Life of Fred Financial Choices


As your kiddos get older you may also like to instill strong financial decision making. The Life of Fred Financial Choices book is a great intro. And if we’re being honest, there’s never a bad time time for parents to brush up on this!

Price: $15.99 down from $19.99


Middle School Social Studies

myWorld Social Studies


Comprehensive comprehension: this world history and social studies packet is an excellent kick off to middle school studies. Created for 6th graders, this set lays the groundwork for students to become active citizens by learning about US history and politics, and encouraging learners to understand real ways they can participate, and how it matters.

The package also includes a teacher’s guide for every chapter, lesson plans, audio podcasts on each subject, and editable tests with answer keys: it really sets everyone up for success!

Price: $72.47


Science for the Family

Magic School Bus Nature Bundle


Summer is a great time to get the whole family involved with experiments to foster learning and family bonding!

This set comes with four science kits at $16 (a $35 savings) with topics covered:

  • Weather – learn about rainbows, tornadoes, the greenhouse effect and more.
  • Going Green – learn about recycling, compost, and making new paper out of old!
  • Solar Energy – watch solar energy inflate balloons and spin a top
  • Wonders of Nature – build and ant hill, dissolve an egg shell, do an animal tracks exercise

Price: $63 down from $100
