Bytes of Learning: UltraKey Online Family Subscription ~ Review

Did you ever have to take a class that you didn’t think you wanted or needed but it turned out to be great? That would have been me taking keyboarding in junior high. Keyboarding didn’t exactly sound like a ton of fun but I am sure glad I took it! Being proficient at typing served me well from that point on.

It is because I know how important that proficiency at keyboarding is,  that I have been so excited to review the UltraKey Online Family Subscription. This is a one year subscription  that teaches keyboarding from Bytes of Learning!

More About UltraKey

The first step in setting up UltraKey was getting each of the kids set up with their own login. This was very easy to do, I just added each of the kids names and gave them their login password. Right off the bat, one thing I really like about UltraKey is that our login is specific to our family. I don’t see anyone else’s information and no one else can see our information. In fact, there is a shortened URL that is specific to our family, so I just bookmarked this on each computer and no matter which one the kids used, we were all set. The screenshot below shows the dashboard for our family. Continue reading

Fortunate are the few who marry for love and love alone.

Travel back in time to 1065 to experience the Norman invasion of England with this latest audio drama from Heirloom Audio ProductionsWulf the Saxon, is just a youth but his loyalty, courage and determination are that of someone much older than he.

Like the other G.A. Henty audio dramas that we have been able to enjoy from Heirloom Audio ProductionsWulf the Saxon is packed with action! We have loved every single one we have listened to! So far we’ve enjoyed In Freedom’s Cause, With Lee in Virginia, The Dragon and The Raven, Beric the Britonand The Cat of Bubastes Wulf the Saxon

Encouraging Hearts & Home 2.15.18

Happy Thursday Morning!

We finished lambing out the first group of ewes yesterday. We have a second group that is due to start lambing March 1, so we get a small break from the middle of the night checks. When the weather is cold a baby lamb can chill pretty fast, even in the barn, and since we want to make sure everyone gets off to a great, start we check them regularly. That means, we have to interupt our sleep to check on the mamas and the babies but it is totally worth it to see those healthy baby lambs (and goats too when they decide to start kidding 😉 )

It’s time for this week’s Encouraging Hearts & Home. I hope you will be encouraged by the posts that are linked up!

Good Thursday Morning!! I hope this find you well.

We have started lambing the few ewes that are due this winter. So far, we have gotten along well. Hopefully that continues! We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first goat kids within the next week or so. The mamas are all tucked into the barn to keep them warm.
