Time 4 Learning

 Good grief....it's only the first week in August and the back to school enthusiasts are at it. What happened to summer? Since our family leans more towards a learning all the time style than a formal school year, the calendar doesn't have a huge impact on what do, but it would be pretty hard not to have the seasons effect us in some way or another. There are actually a few things I really do like about this time of year.

1) I can get my fill of ridiculously cheap school supplies. As much as I try to reduce clutter and stop buying things I don't need, I simply cannot resist $1 packs of Sharpies, or 50 cent notebooks and glue sticks.

2) The local lakes and parks will soon be much less crowded. I do feel kind of bad for all the kids who will be stuck in classrooms while we are out exploring, but since I really can't do anything about that, I might as well go out and enjoy.

We've started thinking about our next "school year." Those who know us know that we are not the "schooliest" of homeschoolers, but I do love the freshness that a new school year brings with it. Planning, dreaming and scheming is all very exciting.

We're always on the lookout for fun ways of learning, and on that note:

*** I've been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. Time4Learning can be used for homeschool, afterschool and summer skill sharpening. Be sure to come back and read about my experience. ***


  1. I'm eager to read your review on time4learning. We enjoy using it, and I just recommended it to a friend.

  2. Yikes! I need to write that review!! I'm on it and it should be coming this week.
