Back Drops For School Pictures and More ~ DropPlace Review

Photographers have been using back drops for years to give their pictures a professional and polished flair. Now bloggers with all different focuses from food to family are beginning to use them more frequently, but what about homeschooling parents and groups? They could really benefit from being able to take their own pictures right at home for the school year too. I recently found a place that not only has a wide variety to choose from, but they are priced so that a family can easily afford them too!

Are You Driving One Of The Deadliest Vehicles On The Road?

*sponsored post. I received compensation to share this resource. see disclosure. 

Last year after our son was born, we realized that a new family vehicle was a necessity. There just was not enough room for our seven year old's booster seat, my tween daughter, and the baby's car seat in the back row of my car. We decided a roomier SUV would be a better option for us, so the hunt for a new ride began. After looking over tons of options in our price range which would be the safest choice became a deciding factor. Browsing through auto recalls and dangerous reviews had me ready to give up because I wanted to make the best choice for our children's safety!

What's The Secret To Success In Math? ~ Saxon Math 7/6 Homeschool Complete Kit

Math. This has been a subject that I have struggled to find a curriculum that will fit with my daughter's learning style. I have jumped from one curriculum to another each year. Our girl needs review in her lessons, so she will have time to absorb the information. Most texts we have tried would be testing over a new concept immediately without hardly any review at all from one lesson to the next. This just didn't work for us, and she was feeling defeated and giving up. I looked into a source that had worked for me when I was homeschooled, and guess what? We found just want she needed to succeed in math!

Awesome Apple Snacks

Apples are a great snack for kids and adults! We always have some in our home since my kids love them. Apples are known to lower cholesterol, and even help strengthen and whiten teeth. They are a filling snack thanks to all of the fiber in an apple. Not to mention they are really tasty! I found some really awesome ways you can turn an apple into an unforgettable snack that any kid, or kid at heart, will adore!

*I received the product below for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own. see disclosure.

Around our home we like to keep entertainment educational when possible. I just love when we discover a show that is fun, entertaining, and educational. This year for my 2015 Back To School Guide, I was able to check out the new release from PBS KIDS that is all those things I look for in a program wrapped into one!

The Cinderella and Other Fairytale Adventures DVD features five Super Why episodes, and is an adorable program that challenges your kids to think and have fun while reading. 

The main character Whyatt takes your children on reading adventures to solve small challenges that his friends from Storybrook village are puzzled by. When answers are needed they "Look In a Book!" Each of these lovable characters join Whyatt at the book club and transform into Super Readers with special abilities to help solve the issue they are facing. His partners are Red RidingHood aka Wonder Red who has Word Power. Pig aka Alpha Pig brings Alphabet Power with him, and Princess Pea aka Princess Presto uses Spelling Power. Then of course there is Whyatt and he is Super Why with the Power to Read. They also help your children stay engaged and actively participating by turning to them to use their special power- the Power to Help during the story.

No More Dunking and Swishing ~ Diaper Sprayer Review

Dunking and Swishing, Swishing and Dunking! If you are a cloth diapering Mom or Dad, you know exactly what I am talking about. You have probably done this a few, or a thousand, times. It works, and does the job of cleaning the icky messes off our adorable fluff. Still rinsing cloth diapers in the toilet water is not how I like to spend even a few minutes of my day. So guess what? We finally have a diaper sprayer! Officially made the switch from dunking and swishing our cloth diapers to spraying, and I couldn't be happier.

*I received this product for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own. see disclosure.

Glow Bug Cloth Diapers offers budget friendly pocket diapers with a 360 degree inner gusset that you may remember I raved about last fall in my review. They also have many helpful accessories for us cloth diapering parents to add to our stash too like bamboo cloth wipes and inserts, and a cloth diaper sprayer. (Want to mention here the exact name of the sprayer they offer is the Saria Bidet/ Diaper Sprayer.)
