I really can’t believe that our second year on the Homeschool Review Crew is coming to an end!! We have been so blessed to be a part of this group. We’ve been introduced to and loved curriculum that I never even knew existed.
The audio adventures from Heirloom Audio Productions and Star Toaster are just a couple of examples that fall into to the “never knew they existed and now we love them” category.
There have been so many other great products that we’ve been able to review. I hope to have the kids vote on their favorites so I can let you know which ones they think are tops.
One thing is for sure, our homeschool has certainly benefited from our time on the Homeschool Review Crew!!
Would you like to have the opportunity to become part of the Homeschool Review Crew?

Educeri ……. Educeri a division of DataWORKS has over 1000 Ready to Teach Lessons available with their Educeri Lesson Subscription Service. We received a year long membership to this Subscription Service in exchange for my review.
Educeri is self-described as, “team of educators, editors, graphic designers, grammar snobs, and math nerds who are passionate about providing top-notch educational materials.” Their goal is to make the lives of teachers easier, eliminating those late night panic attacks.
The kids, especially Brock, have long been interested in making short films. They have been known to “steal” my phone or camera and make videos. So when he heard that we were going to be able to review Online Christian Filmmakers Academy by Family Gravity Media, a division of Families For Christ Ministries, Inc., he was ecstatic.
Online Christian Filmmakers Academy is the online course that father-son team, Ken and Zack Lawrence developed to train up Christian filmmakers. They have been working together since 2004. Some of the projects they have completed include the feature film In His Steps, TV series Welcome Home Antelope Valley, DVD releases The Pastor’s House, Father-Child Projects, The Courtship Formula documentary, and many short films.
In addition to being a certified Career and Technical Education (CTE) instructor in Audio/Video & film; Ken is also a pastor, author, actor, Christian film producer and homeschool father of four.
Zack wrote, produced and directed the feature film In His Steps based on the Christian classic by Charles Sheldon during 2012 and 2013. He also produced the Indy Christian Series which ran online for 100 episodes.
Together Ken and Zack operate the Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers camp (since 2007) and the Online Christian Filmmakers Academy (since 2012) Continue reading
As a farm family, we often stay outside working until dark, even if that’s 9 pm. When we get inside we still need to get supper before getting everyone to bed. This type of schedule led to us often having the same meals over and over because I could fix them fairly quickly with what we had in the freezer. Then we had the opportunity to try the MyFreezEasy.com Freezer Meal Plan Membership from MyFreezEasy.
We have loved trying out a wide variety of meals that are easy to put together and have in the freezer. Now I can send one of the kids to the house while we are still out working and say, “pick what you want for supper and start it defrosting” or “go grab a FreezeEasy meal and throw it in the oven.” Continue reading
