The BEST laptop accessory I've found!

I am posting today about some amazing, awesome laptop external speakers by "Go Groove". They clip onto the sides of your laptop screen, have a retractable cord and when done, snap together as they are magnetized, making them a compact, portable little deal. LOVE them!

I cannot tell you how many times I've tried to listen to something on my laptop and I just could NOT get it loud enough! These have been the best solution and I wish I'd had them months ago!

Hope this helps ya'll! Click on the title of this post and it will take you right to the speakers listed on Happy Laptop Listening, ya'll!

Our local Homeschool Co-op

Hi all,
It's been a loooooong time, I know. Just stopping in to post a link to our homeschool co-op called CAFFE/MAD Monday. CAFFE stands for Creative Arts Fellowship for Education. And MAD is Music, Arts, Drama. We meet for MAD on Mondays at a local church. If you're interested, check out the link. We'd love to have you join us!

I'll be back...much sooner than last time!

My latest favorite thing: The Workbox System

My lastest favorite thing is called the Workbox System. Here's the link:

I am excited to implement this system in our homeschool this year. It is simple in concept and can be used with whatever curriculum you are currently using. Seriously, check it out!

Clearplay DVD

Hi everyone,
I know it's been awhile...I've neglected several little projects over the past few months. I am purposing to make the effort to press on with them...little by little.
So, the one thing that's on my mind right now is Clearplay. We like it. A LOT. This is the way it works:
Clearplay is a DVD player with a thumbdrive. You buy the player and a membership for the filters. (There are special offers from time to time, so visit the site often.) You take the thumbdrive, go to the clearplay website and download filters. Then you put the thumbdrive into the Clearplay and stick in just about any movie (rented, owned, etc) and you will have the option to watch the movie in normal play or with the Clearplay filter. My boys esp. have enjoyed being able to watch action movies we normally wouldn't allow them to see b/c of all the junk within the dialogue, etc. You get the picture.
Here's the website: Go check it out!

Family Friendly Facebook!

Hi ya'll,
For those of us that LOVE Facebook, but don't like the ads that pop up along the sidebar, here's a link and some instructions for you to remove those pesky ads. My eldest has been asking for his own FB page, and I've considered it, but those ads have made me say no for now. Now that they're all gone I might have to get him started on his page...
Here's that link:

Happy Ad-free Facebooking!


Hello! I am thrilled you are here! . I hope this will be a blessing and valued resource to you, your family, and friends.

I've started a list of products with "tried and true" large family recommendations. Everything listed will not work for every family, but hey, if I can save someone else the time of searching the web for all these resources, then it would be worth it.

For homeschooling families, I will post links to sites for all types of subjects, resources, and curriculum. Once again, most of these links will be particular favorites that have been successful for our family, or for other homeschool families. Remember, “tried and true” will be our mantra!

Remember that I constantly update links, add links and categories ALL THE TIME. Also, if you don't see a favorite link that you LOVE, post it here in a link and I will get it uploaded.
